True to form, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum has reportedly already made demands regarding their return to the Hulu series.

Per the Daily Mail, Kourtney Kardashian‘s ex-partner Scott Disick, 39, will return to the streamer after being noticeably absent from season two of the reality series.
The TV personality will appear in several episodes of the upcoming season but has made it clear that he refuses to play “the villain” role in ex’s relationship with her new husband, Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker, 47.
A source close to Talentless founder revealed: “Scott filmed for the show last week after inking a massive contract to be in the upcoming season.”
The insider also told the Daily Mail that the reality TV star was “initially against coming back” because he didn’t want to portray “the villain in Kourtney and Travis’s storyline.”
Fans were witness to 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 it’s because of those fans that the TV personality has decided to return.
“He felt that he owed it to his fans and knew that they wanted to see him back on the show again, at least for one more season,’ the source divulged.
Scott signed the new contract with the guidance of the Kardashian momager, Kris Jenner, 67, and ready to be shown as the “devoted father” that he is.
Last year, Scott’s future on the Hulu show seemed bleak, despite fans’ demands for him to return full-time to season three.
The father of Kourtney’s three kids made his first appearance on season two of the show in the fourth episode, and it was to provide house-flipping advice to Kendall Jenner.
A source revealed to The U.S. Sun that Scott “could make an appearance on season three, but it would be similar to the last where he’s only shown for a small part.”
The last episode of season two aired on November 24th and season three’s premiere date has yet to be announced.
The source revealed: “Scott’s not filming 24/7 with them.
“He’s focusing on making money separate from the show because he doesn’t have that financial support anymore.
“He’s looking for brand partnerships and his next career move, especially after his spin-off show [Flip It Like Disick] flopped.”
“Scott’s minimal appearance in Season two comes as no surprise,” the insider added before stating, “The Kardashians moving to Hulu and Travis [Barker] marrying Kourtney had a lot to do with it.”
The insider continued: “The focus of the show is on the girls [Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, and Kendall].
“Since Scott’s not romantically involved with Kourtney, they didn’t feel like there was a storyline for him.”
The insider said that the 39-year-old “tension and estrangement” from Travis and Kourtney, 43, is another reason why he didn’t film much.
“Travis and Scott don’t like each other at all. They can’t stand to be in the same room together,” a source told The U.S. Sun.
After marrying the rockstar drummer, Kourtney now has a large, blended family with her husband. Travis shares kids 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 nowadays.
“They’re co-parenting amicably. They share time with the kids and are fair when it comes to splitting 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 behind closed doors there’s very minimum communication 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: “It was a huge adjustment losing Kourtney romantically. But now it’s becoming a huge adjustment losing her as a best friend.
“Now we’re really just more co-parenters. I’d say it’s probably one of the more difficult things in my life.”
Although Scott has been open about his feelings towards Kourtney moving on with Travis, he has yet to share his true feelings about his kids’ stepdad.
Except for, of course, the alleged leaked DM he sent to Kourt’s ex Younes Bendjima last year where he called out the lovebirds for showing PDA on a boat in Italy.
He allegedly messaged Younes: “Yo is this chick ok!???? Broooo like what is this. In the middle of Italy.”
Since Kravis tied the knot in May 2022, Scott has also been visibly absent from family functions- Fans questioned if he was at Kourtney’s recent Christmas Eve party.
Scott told Khloe in season 1: “Feeling left out and not being told anything is super hurtful- especially when I don’t have another family to go to. I’d rather be around [Kourtney and Travis] and be around my family than not at all.”
Scott reunited with the Kardashians to celebrate their son Mason’s Bar Mitzvah on Saturday, December 17th. However, Travis was absent from family photos and was believed to have skipped out.
Fans are now begging for Scott to return to the show, especially since he was very much a part of KUWTK in the past.
In one of Scott’s Instagram posts, fans expressed their emotions about not seeing the kids’ father on TV.
“WE MISS U ON THE SHOW SCOTT,” one fan typed in all caps.
“We want Scott back on the Kardashians,” another demanded, while another agreed: “Love you Lord!! We need to see MORE of you on The Kardashians!!”
Another added: “We miss you Scott. You are a favorite to many viewers watching keeping up with the Kardashians.”
