E! is still “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which is coming back for more this summer.

The seventh season premieres May 20 on E! and will feature 18 new one-hour episodes, the network announced Friday.

Viewers can look forward to “more love and more drama from one of the most watched families on television,” according to E!, adding “you simply can’t keep the Kardashians down.”

The strangely addictive reality show follows the K family — Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and Kris, as well as brother Rob and patriarch Bruce Jenner — in their every day lives, which manage to have extraordinary drama.

The new season picks up in the aftermath of Kim’s Katastrophic marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries, as she finds renewed bonds with her family following the intense media fallout surrounding her televised over-the-top and allegedly phoney wedding, 72-day marriage and now second divorce. In a happier storyline, sister Kourtney and baby daddy Scott Disick await the arrival of their second child, and this time it’s a girl.

Kim Kardashian appeared Friday on “Today” and talked about how everything is hunky dory these days — and is ridiculously evasive about the out-of-the-blue stories that emerged overnight that say she is now dating Kanye West (note: she’s still technically married to Humphries).
