Batten down your hatches, Miami: the Kardashians are returning with their cameras and entourage.
EW has learned exclusively that Kim and Kourtney Kardashian will begin production Monday on Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, E’s fourth iteration of the franchise that began in 2009 with Kourtney and sister Khloe heading to Florida to open a branch of their clothing franchise.
In this latest installment that will bow in January, EW hears that Khloe is expected to play a big role in the series. Whether this could get in the way of an upcoming hosting gig on The X Factor — assuming Khloe even gets it — remains to be seen. Khloe Kardashian’s name was one of many that circulated this summer as a possible emcee for the show’s second season. Other rumored candidates have included America’s Best Dance Crew host Mario Lopez and actress/model Stacy Keibler.
Fox has yet to announce a host but they have some time to make a decision, since the live shows don’t begin until the first week of November.
Meanwhile, the seventh season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs this Sunday at 9. In the episode, Kim decides to be “proactive” about starting a family by freezing her eggs.
