Keeping Up With The Kardashians wrapped 20 seasons on air just last week, and the famous family and their longtime production crew are still reflecting on the wild ride.
Kim Kardashian, 40, who catapulted both the show and her family to mega-fame, posted a video to Twitter made by a production ‘krew’ member named Cesar Castillo that gave a behind the scenes look at the people who made the show possible.
Though the full video spanned over 13 minutes long, Kim shared a touching two-minute excerpt that included the sisters and Kris Jenner thanking the team, interspersed with the faces and antics of those behind the lens.

Cesar’s caption read: ‘During these years, friendships and bonds were built and eventually these relationships transitioned into becoming a family. We’ve created so many memories throughout the years, here are some of them.’
The video opened with text that read: ‘Our last night of filming,’ as it showed the family watching fireworks and hugging their crying segment producer Amanda Weinstein of Bunim Murray Productions.
The tribute then took a leap back in time. ‘Let me take you back and show you how we became a family,’ Cesar’s video text then said.
Content continued to show intimate moments from the family’s globe trotting travels over the years, as crew members were videotaped in locations ranging from South Africa to Bali to Rome and The Maldives.
