Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port won't return to The Hills for its series finale, however they will celebrate the MTV reality show's sendoff.
Both Conrad and Port will participate in The Hills live post-finale show, which will air on Tuesday, July 13 at 11PM ET/PT immediately following the reality series' finale in the 10PM ET/PT timeslot.
"Lauren Conrad will be at that finale event, along with Whitney Port and the whole entire cast," The Hills creator Adam DiVello said during a Wednesday appearance on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show.
"So it will be a big party and big throw down."
Despite Conrad and Port's absence from the actual finale, DeVillo promised that viewers will be pleased with the way the show ends.
"We have some stories I think being paid-off in the finale that the viewers will find pretty exciting. I think everybody's coming to peace with their stories that we've been following along. I think a few of them have definitely found happiness and found what they were looking for," he told Seacrest.
"So it'll be an exciting ending and we definitely have a couple surprises up our sleeves that the cast doesn't even know about."
Conrad left The Hills last spring while Port departed in late 2008 to instead star in its The City spinoff.
Both Port and DeVillo recently denied rumors that the show was being canceled after it's currently-airing second season, and he told Seacrest the show will most likely be renewed.
"It looks like it's going to happen, we're just waiting for the word," said DeVillo.
