'The Hills: New Beginnings': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about the reality TV reboot
We'll be living our teenage dreams this June as 'The Hills' returns to TV. With iconic moments such as mascara tears and "piranhas", almost all the original casts of MTV's hit reality show will come back but this time it is called 'The Hills: New Beginnings.' The theme song remains the same, Natasha Bedingfield’s 'Unwritten', and that is when you know nostalgia strikes.
At the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, original cast members reunited at the red carpet to announce the reboot, but now the development has seen additional new faces including The O.C's Mischa Barton, and Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s son, Brandon Thomas Lee.
'The Hills: New Beginnings' is all set to premiere on June 24 this year.
As the theme song goes, the "rest is still unwritten".
Good news, most of the original cast is coming back. Stephanie Pratt returns along with her brother Spencer, sister-in-law Heidi Montag, and their new-born son Gunner.
When the announcement of the reboot dropped during the VMAs last year, the Pratts posed on the carpet with Audrina Patridge, Frankie Delgado, Justin Bobby, and Jason Wahler and wife, Ashley. Although Whitney Port didn't make it to the event, she confirmed her return to the show on Instagram the next day.
However, Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari will not be returning. According to a People source, Lauren is "in a different place in her life," and working on her Kohl’s line and other projects besides gearing up for a new baby. Kristin, on the other hand, has her very own show, 'Very Cavallari', on E!.
News has it that Brody Jenner signed to return weeks after everyone else made the official announcement. His wife Kaitlynn Carter, may feature time to time.
Mischa Barton, 'The O.C' actress, will also feature in 'The Hills' reboot according to a Page Six source.
A fresh new addition is Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s son, Brandon Thomas Lee. The 22-year-old, who recently appeared in Netflix's 'Sierra Burgess Is a Loser' took to Instagram to announce that he will be on 'The Hills' reboot.
The debut of the new generation in 'The Hills' include Jason and Ashley's daughter, Delilah, Audrina's daughter Kirra alongside Heidi's baby Gunner.
The first trailer dropped on April 2 and fans were delighted to know that the theme song of the reboot was the same as the original: Natasha Bedingfield’s theme song 'Unwritten'. The nostalgic trailer features Justin Bobby and Audrina, Heidi and Spencer laughing together, and Mischa Barton radiating a smile.
Where to watch
Like the original, 'The Hills: New Beginnings' will also air on MTV.
'The Hills' finale
The last scene of 'The Hills', wrapping up with six seasons in 2010, showed Kristin Cavallari and Brody Jenner saying goodbye in front of the Hollywood sign before the camera panned out to reveal they were actually filming in a studio lot. The series creator, Adam DiVello, explained the ending, "We had come up with a bunch of ideas, and then I had this idea to focus it on the Hollywood sign and really just kind of incorporate Hollywood into the ending of it. Our show's one that's based in Hollywood, and these kids live, work and play here and never, never really kind of acknowledged in the series that Hollywood is where shows are made."
