"Keeping Up With the Kardashians" is extending its TV family: Brody Jenner, patriarch Bruce Jenner's son, is joining the cast in the E! reality show's eighth season.
"I'm looking forward to the upcoming season and getting to know my extended family a little better," Brody told E! News.
The 29-year-old Hollywood scenester is no stranger to the reality cameras. In addition to several appearances on his step-siblings' show, he starred alongside ex-girlfriend Lauren Conrad and the infamous couple known as Speidi (Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt) on "The Hills." He also created and starred in the short-lived "The Princes of Malibu," featuring Pratt, his brother Brandon, their mother Linda Thompson, and her husband David Foster.
(Foster himself has a guest gig on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" with his fourth wife, Yolanda. Southern California reality programming is positively incestuous, no?)
Added stepsister Khloé Kardashian Odom on her blog: "I'm always excited for each new season of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians,' but I'm especially excited for this upcoming season because you're going to be seeing a lot more of the Kardashian/Jenner clan! My stepbrothers, Brody and Brandon, and Brandon's wife Leah are going to be on the show much more, which means an even closer look into the inner-workings of my crazy, wonderful family! Get ready people!"
Season eight of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" debuts in June.
