The ex-Kardashians’ family member is ‘returning to the show’ after ‘signing a massive deal’ – but he’s already making demands
Ex-Kardashians actor Scott Disick has signed a “massive contract,” making way for a comeback in season three.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians fan favorite has reportedly made calls for his return to the Hulu series.
According to the Daily Mail, Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-partner Scott, 39, will return to the streamer after being noticeably absent from the reality series’ second season.
The TV personality will appear in several episodes of the upcoming season of The Kardashians, but he has made it clear that he refuses to play the “bad guy” role against Kourtney’s new husband, Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker , 47, to play.
A source close to the Talentless founder revealed, “Scott filmed for the show last week after signing a massive contract for the upcoming season.”
The insider also told the Daily Mail that the reality TV star was “against a comeback at first” because she didn’t want to portray “the villain in the Kourtney and Travis storyline.”
Fans witnessed the sometimes tumultuous relationship between Scott and Kourtney, with whom he shares three children — Mason, 13, Penelope, 10, and Reign, eight — on the E! show and because of these fans, the TV personality has decided to return.
“He felt like he owed it to his fans and knew they wanted to see him back on the show, at least for another season,” the source revealed.
Scott signed the new deal with the guidance of Kardashian momager Kris Jenner, 67, and ready to show himself as the “devoted dad” that he is.
Last year, Scott’s future on the Hulu show looked bleak, despite fans clamoring for him to return full-time for season three.

The father of Kourtney’s three children made his debut in the show’s second season in the fourth episode, and he was set to give Kendall Jenner advice on moving houses.
A source revealed to The US Sun that Scott “could appear in season three, but it would be similar to the last one where he’s only shown for a small part.”
The final episode of the second season aired on November 24th and the premiere date of the third season has yet to be announced.
The source revealed: “Scott doesn’t film with them 24/7.
“He’s focused on making money independent of the show because he no longer has that financial backing.
“He’s looking for brand partnerships and his next career move, particularly his spin-off show [Flip It Like Disick] flopped.”
‘NO SURPRISE’ SCOTT IS OUT
“Scott’s minimal appearance in season two comes as no surprise,” the insider added.
“The Kardashians moving to Hulu and Travis marrying Kourtney had a lot to do with that.”
The insider continued, “The focus of the show is on the girls. Since Scott isn’t romantically involved with Kourtney, they didn’t feel like there was a storyline for him.”
The insider said the 39-year-old’s “tension and estrangement” from Travis and Kourtney, 43, is another reason he hasn’t filmed much.
“Travis and Scott don’t like each other at all. They can’t stand being in the same room together,” a source told The US Sun.
After marrying the rock star drummer, Kourtney now has a large blended family with her husband. Travis shares children Atiana De La Hoya, 23, Landon, 19, and Alabama, 17, with ex Shanna Moakler.
The source provided an update on Scott and Kourtney’s co-parenting these days.
“They are consensual co-parents. They share time with the kids and are fair when it comes to sharing time,” the source said.
“Their relationship on the other hand is a different story — they’re completely strained.
“They are friendly with each other at family gatherings, but there is very little communication behind closed doors and Scott keeps his distance.
“It hurts him to see how in love Kourtney and Travis are.”
Back in April, Scott told cameras in an April 2022 episode, “Losing Kourtney romantically has been a huge adjustment. But now losing her as a best friend is going to be a huge adjustment.
“Now we’re really just co-parents. I would say it’s probably one of the harder things in my life.”
Though Scott has been open about his feelings towards Kourtney moving on with Travis, he has yet to reveal his true feelings about his children’s stepfather.
Aside, of course, from the allegedly leaked DM he sent to Kourt’s ex Younes Bendjima last year, where he phoned the lovebirds for showing PDA on a boat in Italy.
He reportedly texted Younes: “Yo is this chick alright!???? Broooo, how is that. In the middle of Italy.”
Since Kravis tied the knot in May 2022, Scott has also been visibly absent from family gatherings — fans have asked if he attended Kourtney’s last Christmas party.
Scott told Khloe in Season 1, “It’s very hurtful to feel left out and not being told – especially when I don’t have other family to go to. I’d rather be close [Kourtney and Travis] and be with my family than not at all.”
Scott reunited with the Kardashians on Saturday, December 17 to celebrate their son Mason’s bar mitzvah. However, Travis was absent from family photos and was believed to have dropped out.
DEMANDS FROM THE FANS
Fans are now begging for Scott to return to the show, especially since he’s been a big part of KUWTK in the past.
In one of Scott’s Instagram posts, fans expressed their feelings about not seeing the children’s father on TV.
“WE MISS U ON THE SHOW SCOTT,” one fan typed in all caps.
“We want Scott back with the Kardashians,” demanded another, while another agreed, “Love you Lord!! We need to see MORE of you at the Kardashians!”
Another added: “We miss you Scott. You’re a favorite for many viewers watching them keep up with the Kardashians.”
