Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 1 And 2 Coming To Netflix Australia Next Month

Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 1 And 2 Coming To Netflix Australia Next Month

The Kardashian clan have been on our TV screens for seemingly the beginning of time.

It's hard to imagine a time when Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kris, Rob, Caitlyn, Kendall and Kylie weren't dominating headlines, selling products and collectively raking in tens of millions of dollars a year.

But, if you want to take a trip down memory lane and see how this iconic family became so famous then Netflix Australia and New Zealand has you covered.

Seasons One and Two of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will be hitting the streaming service at the beginning of June.

The first season debuted on E! all the way back at the end of 2007 (feel old yet?) and it is a far cry from the slick, polished, glamorous and outrageous TV show that it is today.

The series was created after Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner got in touch with Ryan Seacrest and convinced him that her family was worthy of national attention.

Kris said: "Everybody thinks that [my children] could create a bunch of drama in their lives, but it's something that I felt I didn't even have to think about. It would be natural."

Ryan was intrigued about the idea and sent a cameraman to film the family during a Sunday barbecue and they must have done something right because E! decided to launch a TV show after seeing the footage.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, Seacrest said: "[Kris] was interested in doing a television show and this was in the time that The Osbournes was popular.

"I had seen The Osbournes and thought to myself - because I had formed a production company - I thought we should find something in this vein.

"And at the time, we had heard that Kris was interested in doing something with the family, so it was me and one other guy at the company... We had no idea it would become the monster pop culture business that it is.

No one, except for maybe the Kardashian clan, thought it was going to be as big as what it has become.

The series is still going strong to this day and has notched an impressive 18 seasons, 256 episodes, five special episodes and a whole lot of drama.

There have also been a bunch of spin-offs in a bid to keep that Kardashian Koin coming in, including Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons, Dash Dolls, Rob & Chyna and I am Cait.

But if you want to see how it all began then you only have to wait until June 1.
