'The Hills: New Beginnings' revival with "original cast" announced by MTV
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/21/2018
The Hills is coming back to MTV with familiar faces from the show's original run.
MTV has announced it's reviving The Hills with the "original cast" under the new nameThe Hills: New Beginnings, which is slated to premiere in 2019.
MTV first revealed the big news during the 2018 Video Music Awards that aired on Monday night.
The Hills: New Beginnings will reunite many of the original cast members, alongside their children and friends, and follow their personal and professional lives while living in Los Angeles, CA. The show will feature returning favorites as well as fresh faces.
While the network has yet to officially announce the returning cast members who will star onThe Hills: New Beginnings, a number of former cast members showed up to the VMAs together at Radio City Music Hall in New York City to celebrate the revival.
It's probably safe to assume those cast members -- Heidi, Spencer, Audrina, Jason Wahler, Stephanie Pratt, Justin Bobby and Frankie Delgado -- will be part of the revival.
Noticeably missing from the VMA appearance, however, were The Hills' biggest stars: Kristin, Whitney and Lauren.
According toUs Weekly, Whitney is set to return for The Hills: New Beginnings after all, but there is still no word from Kristin and Lauren as to whether they will participate.
But back in June, Kristin -- whose own Very Cavalleri reality series just recently premiered on E! -- admitted she would actually "love to do a Hills reunion."
"I was talking to E! about doing one, and we were gonna do it, but then two people had to pull out because of another contract, so hopefully it'll happen at some point, but it's been out on hold for the moment," the fashion designer told the magazine at the time, later revealing Heidi and Spencer had been the two stars to back out.
A celebrity and two bloggers have also reportedly been added to the cast of The Hills: New Beginnings.
The first teaser trailer has already been released for The Hills: New Beginnings, although it does not show any cast members' faces.

"It's like we're all growing up. It's weird," Stephanie said in the trailer as a new version of the show's classic theme song, "Unwritten," plays in the background.
The Hills: New Beginnings is being produced by MTV and Evolution Media.
