Brody Jenner joins 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' season 8
Brody Jenner is set to join the cast of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
The 29-year-old son of Bruce Jenner, who is also a stepbrother to Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, is set to join the reality series, according to the E! Network. Khloe also posted about it on her blog.
"I'm always excited for each new season of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians,' but I'm especially excited for this upcoming season because you're going to be seeing a lot more of the Kardashian/Jenner clan!" she posted on March 4.
"My stepbrothers, Brody and Brandon, and Brandon's wife Leah are going to be on the show much more, which means an even closer look into the inner-workings of my crazy, wonderful family!" she continued. "Get ready people!"
The younger Jenner, who has made multiple cameo appearances on the show previously, is no stranger to reality television. From 2006 to 2010, Jenner was featured heavily alongside Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari on MTV's popular series, "The Hills." The actor went on to star in his own short-lived reality competition series, "Bromance," in 2008.
The eighth season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" is set to premiere in June.
In April 2012, the reality TV family reportedly signed a $40 million deal with the E! Network to continue the hugely popular series and its various spin-off shows.
E! Entertainment announced on April 24 that they had reached a deal for another three years of the series and while they didn't disclose details, TMZ reported at the time that the deal cost the network at least $40 million, which would make it the biggest deal in reality TV history.
Kim Kardashian recently made headlines for her pregnancy with rapper Kanye West. She and West announced the baby news in December 2012, and Kim announced shortly after that she was looking forward to "starting a family."
Kardashian is going through a divorce after a 72-day marriage to second husband and NBA player Kris Humphries, who starred with her on the 2011 season of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York."
