The Kardashian effect is an irrefutable force in pop culture, driving the cultural conversation on a regular basis.

Scott continues to do his best as a father and decides to buy a house in Calabasas to be closer to Kourtney and their three children. Meanwhile, Kourtney tries to embrace her new life without Scott as her partner.
Also in the all-new season, Kim and Kris' time as roommates during Kim's prolonged home renovations comes to an end. After months and months of living at Kris' house, Kim has worn out her welcome and is left with no choice but to leave and find another place to live, even though her house is not even near ready. Kylie follows in Kim's footsteps and "breaks the internet" with the launch of her popular lip kits. Kendall is at the peak of her career: launching a clothing line with Kylie, jet setting to different countries for business and pleasure, covering top fashion magazines, and walking in the most revered fashion shows. However, with great success comes great sacrifice and she must decide if doing it all is worth the cost of missing out on irreplaceable family memories.
