Streaming service Hayu has confirmed that the E! series will be back on screens in September and UK viewers will be able to stream and download the new episodes on the same day as the US.
The reality show had to take a mid-season break as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but now the wait for fans is almost over.
The new episodes will give viewers an insight into how the family dealt with being in lockdown during the pandemic as they filmed footage for season 18b inside their homes on iPhones.
If you're not currently subscribed to Hayu, you can take advantage of its 30-day free trial and catch up on every single episode of the Kardashian reality shows to date, while new and existing NOW TV customers can also take advantage of a hayu Month Pass, priced at £3.99 per month.
In a statement, Kim wrote: "Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate [Kanye's] dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.
"We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with in times when they need it the most," she continued.
"I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being and for your understanding."
Keeping Up With The Kardashians airs on E! in the UK and US and is also available to stream and download on Hayu. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Netflix. Season 18 will return in September.
