"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.
