In 2012, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" was renewed by E! for three seasons, to the tune of more than $40 million, which at the time was the most expensive reality TV deal in history. Until now.

It's negotiation time again for Kim Kardashian and family and it looks like they stand to earn even more than $40 million with their new multiseason deal, TMZ is reporting.

One member of the clan, however, may not be signing the new deal. Family patriarch Bruce Jenner is on this season and he is reluctantly shooting another season, but then he's reportedly done for good, according to TMZ. After being in the Kardashian spotlight for so long, Bruce reportedly wants to focus on golfing, flying helicopters, riding motorcycles and spending time with his kids.
