The Kardashian family will continue living life on TV for the next three years. Deadline reports that the clan has closed a new three-year deal with E! for their signature series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which will include orders for three more seasons.

The deal also covers the family’s spin-offs for Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, and Bruce, Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner — and extends the Kardashians for unscripted projects.

The sixth season of the show averaged 3 million viewers on Sunday nights, the cable networks’ top series.

Five of the 10 most-watched shows in the network’s history, in fact, involved the Kardashians. The 18-episode seventh season begins on May 20.

No word if Kim’s rumored new beau Kanye West will appear on the upcoming seasons — but the two were seen holding hands while out and about in New York City.
