After sitting out of Diane Sawyer’s highly rated 20/20 interview with Bruce Jenner, the Kardashian side of the former Olympian’s family is finally ready to talk about his transition on camera.
E! has announced a two-part special titled Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce, which will feature “intimate conversations and intensely emotional moments that Bruce Jenner has with his Kardashian family as they discuss his transition.”
According to the network, everyone from that side of the family — Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, as well as Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, and even Scott Disick — will “speak candidly with Bruce, ask many questions and begin to understand the tough journey he’s been on his entire life.”
“Through sharing their own family’s story, the Kardashians are hoping to help other families experiencing the same thing,” the network explains. “The special also includes family home video footage that reminds viewers and the family of the special times they spent with Bruce as a father, husband and friend, and serves as inspiration for the memories they’ll create as Bruce lives his ‘new normal.'”
The special’s first hour will air Sunday, May 17 at 9/8c, and the second will air Monday, May 18 at 9 pm.
