Will Rob Kardashian appear in Season 18 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians?

Althoguh Rob Kardashian was a regular in the early days of Keeping Up with the Kardashians,  struggles with his weight ultimately led to Rob’s exit from the series — sans a stray appearance here and there. However, now that Rob Kardashian is finally in a good place he’s officially prepared to return to Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

On the heels of rumors reporting Rob was considering a return to Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Rob’s sister Khloe Kardashian has officially confirmed her little brother will be back in action when the series returns his fall!

Feeling more confident and comfortable in his skin, Rob is ready to return to step back into the spotlight and will appear on the show more when the series returns this September. As Khloe noted in speaking with People, Rob is going to be featured more often and is already filming new material:

"“[Rob] is filming more,” she adds. “We’re filming more within our homes, and he is right there with us. I’m excited for everyone to see that. He’s such a good person and I’m just happy he’s coming back around on camera a little bit more.”"

Rob Kardashian weight gain and depression led to his Keeping Up with the Kardashian exit

While Rob Kardashian was a staple during the early seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as the years went by his appearances became fewer and fewer. While sister Kourtney Kardashian might have stepped away from the show due to what she described as a toxic environment, Rob’s reason for stepping back was more personal.

As it’s been long documented, Rob ultimately chose to step away from the series due to his struggles with weight gain and depression. Fortunately, he’s had the support of his family who never pushed him to appear on the show or in photos shared on their socials without his permission. “We never push him, everything is his free will,” Khloe noted.

Rob Kardashian has always been close with his sisters, despite not being present in Keeping Up with the Kardashian

Although Rob might not appear regularly on Keeping Up with the Kardashians make no mistake he’s always remained close with his sisters — particularly Khloe.

As Khloe revealed to People, “Rob is truly my best friend. I love, love, love, him. He’s always around. People think we don’t see him, but just because the public doesn’t see him, doesn’t mean we don’t see him.”

Honestly, we love the support Khloe and the family have given Rob over the years as well as the respect showed to him in acknowledging his desire to stay out of the limelight.
