History

Season 1 Format

The first season premiered on August 29, 2006. The show followed two real estate companies, one in Hollywood and one in Malibu. Numerous agents were featured during the season (including Madison Hildebrand, who appeared in later seasons). Episodes showcased a real estate listing from Hollywood and a listing from Malibu, starting from the beginning of the selling process to close. The storylines ranged from a woman who was a hysterical divorcee forced to sell her multi-million dollar home, to an agent whose personal ties to the seller (her ex-fiance) get in the way of a potential sale.

Season 2 - Present

Season two premiered on August 7, 2008, almost two years after the prior season. The format of the program changed, focusing on specific agents as opposed to real estate companies. The season featured three Los Angeles real estate agents, Josh Flagg, Madison Hildebrand and Chad Rogers.

Season three of Million Dollar Listing premiered on Bravo on Monday October 12, 2009. Season three examined a falling real estate market and the three agents' tactics in staying afloat. Edith Flagg, who had been in earlier episodes, returned to the program and travelled Europe with Josh to revisit the places she lived during the Holocaust.

The fourth season premiered February 3, 2011 at 9 pm on Bravo with agents Josh Flagg, Madison Hildebrand and a new agent, Josh Altman. Chad Rogers was no longer a part of the cast. Rogers refused to talk about if he was on the show, or why he was no longer on the show during an appearance on "This Week In Reality TV" in December of 2010.

It was announced on August 2, 2011, that Million Dollar Listing was renewed for a fifth season. The show title was officially changed to Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles after the premiere of Million Dollar Listing New York, both under the "Million Dollar Listing" franchise. All three cast members from Season 4 will return. Season 5 premiered on June 6, 2012
