Diane Sawyer will be interviewing Bruce Jenner on April 24th in a two-hour primetime special. The interview will take place on ABC’s 20/20. The network announced the date and time of the interview earlier on Monday.
Bruce Jenner is in the process of transitioning from a man to a woman, and it’s been no secret that Diane Sawyer scored the interview. Following the Keeping Up With the Kardashians patriarch’s recent car accident–during which a woman was killed–there was some speculation that the interview might get postponed.
Diane Sawyer reportedly interviewed Bruce Jenner “some time ago,” however. The interview had actually taken place prior to his car accident.
When Us Weekly confirmed back in February that Diane Sawyer would be interviewing Bruce Jenner, they also reported that he will follow up that interview with a docu-series on E! that follows the transition he’s been undergoing for several months now.
Bruce Jenner–The Interview will in fact detail the former Olympian’s transition from male to female. His family–daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, sons Burt, Brandon, and Brody Jenner, and stepdaughters Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim Kardashian all support the transition.

“I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever the time is right,” Kim Kardashian told Entertainment Tonight back in February. “I feel like that’s his journey to talk about.”
Bruce Jenner’s mother said several weeks back that she is more proud of her son for sharing his transition journey than she was when he won an Olympic Gold medal.
“It takes a lot of courage to do what he’s doing,” Esther Jenner told the Associated Press. “He said, ‘Mom, I’m still the same person.’ He said, ‘I’m still going to race cars, I’m still going to fly airplanes and I’m going to get my helicopter license.'”
Unfortunately Kris Jenner isn’t particularly supportive of her ex-husband’s transition. She was reportedly embarrassed about Bruce Jenner’s recent breast implant surgery.
