Brody Jenner is joining the cast of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'.

The reality TV star, the son of Bruce Jenner and his second wife Linda Thompson, has popped up on the show in the past, but will have more of a major role in the forthcoming eighth series.

"I'm looking forward to the upcoming season and getting to know my extended family a little better," the 29-year-old told E! News.

Brody - who previously starred in 'The Hills' and had his own competition show 'Bromance' - will be seen spending time with his extended family, including stepsisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, and focusing on his relationship with his dad.


Patriarch Bruce said: "I've been blessed with a very large family, 10 kids, and I've been waiting for years for Brody to break down and spend more time with the family. I'm very excited."

The eighth season is set to premiere on US screens in June.

Former model Brody has had a rocky love life, having dated Avril Lavigne, Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan and former Hills co-stars Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari.

  • Kris Jenner On "Cougar Town"

    If there's one Kardashian that can hold her own with the wine-loving ladies of "<a href="" target="_hplink">Cougar Town</a>," it's the matriarch of the first family of reality TV, Kris Jenner. On "<a href="" target="_hplink">Keeping Up With the Kardashians</a>," you can usually find Kris behind the bar of her Calabasas mansion, so we think that she would have no problem keeping up with Jules and the Cul de Sac crew. Hold your "Big Joe" with pride, Kris!

  • Bruce Jenner on "Grey's Anatomy"

    Okay, so Bruce Jenner's ill-advised facelift is pretty well-documented at this point. In Season 2 of "<a href="" target="_hplink">Keeping Up With the Kardashians</a>," the former athlete went under the knife again to correct his facelift-gone-wrong. But what if Mark Sloan was the one holding the knife? In an effort to bring awareness to his ill-advised procedure, Bruce Jenner would be the perfect plastics patient for McSteamy to fix on "<a href="" target="_hplink">Grey's Anatomy</a>."

  • Kourtney Kardashian On "Dexter"

    Out of all of the Kardashian sisters, Kourtney is probably the most likely to be a serial killer on the side. She's pretty much the female equivalent of Michael C. Hall's emotionless "<a href="" target="_hplink">Dexter</a>," so it would make perfect sense for her to guest star as his female counterpart. Unfortunately, for Kourtney, there's isn't enough room for two serial killers on this Showtime show, so we think this Kardashian would end up on Dexter's table.

  • Scott Disick On "Revenge"

    Scott Disick is "<a href="" target="_hplink">Revenge</a>." He's from the elite Long Island social scene, participates in every absurd male fashion trend and won't leave his house without a pocket square. He could totally guest star as Nolan's brother.

  • Khloe Kardashian On "The Game"

    This one is a no-brainer. BET's "<a href="" target="_hplink">The Game</a>" is about a young woman who decides to put her pending career plans on hold because of the rising success of her star athlete boyfriend. If we didn't tell you that the main character's name is Melanie, you would probably think we are talking about Khloe.

  • Rob Kardashian On "How I Met Your Mother"

    For a show that cast <a href="" target="_hplink">Britney Spears as a saucy receptionist</a> and <a href="" target="_hplink">Katie Holmes as a slutty pumpkin</a>, they can surely find room for a Kardashian. We couldn't think of a better role for Rob than Robin's new boyfriend on "<a href="" target="_hplink">How I Met Your Mother</a>." She loves the bro type, so Rob would be perfect, and it's a great way to get her away from Kevin.

  • Kendall Jenner On "Pretty Little Liars"

    Kendall would fit right in at Rosewood High. She's pretty, has great fashion sense and probably has a secret or two up her sleeve. As "<a href="" target="_hplink">Pretty Little Liars</a>" fans know, Jackie is out to make Aria's life miserable, but the one place she can't get her is at school -- that is, until her little sister (ender Kendall) enrolls at Rosewood High. Not only does Kendall look like Jackie, but she could totally play the bitchy little sister. After all, we've seen her naughty side on "<a href="" target="_hplink">Keeping Up With the Kardashians</a>" more than a few times.

  • Kylie Jenner On "Glee"

    It must be hard being Kylie Jenner. Your famous half-sisters all have their own reality shows, while your pretty older sister is not only taking the modeling business by storm, but also has her own <a href="" target="_hplink">Sweet 16 special on E!</a> So, naturally, Kylie "Misunderstood" Jenner would be the perfect addition to Fox's "<a href="" target="_hplink">Glee</a>." We know that Kylie is handy with a camera, so she could guest star as Jacob Ben Israel's production assistant. After all, he's going to need some help filming the New Directions on their way to Nationals.

  • Mason Dash Disick On "Modern Family"

    The idea of Mason on "Modern Family" is almost too much adorableness to handle. Cameron and Mitchell want to adopt another baby, and Lily could definitely use a new playmate, so who could be cuter than baby Mason? He's already a scene-stealer in "Kourtney & Kim Take New York," and let's be honest: Does anyone like that new Lily anyway?
