ViacomCBS is reviving “The Real World” for streaming service Paramount Plus.
The show, which became the birth of reality TV as we now know it today, launched with seven young strangers from varied backgrounds — model Eric Nies, dancer Julie Gentry, hip hop artist Heather B. Gardner, poet and educator Kevin Powell, filmmaker Norman Korpi, musician Andre Comeau and folk singer Becky Blasband — moving into a New York City apartment together to "have their lives taped to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real."
The initial installment of the rebooted franchise will see the cast of the first season reunite for “The Real World Homecoming: New York.” The multi-episode reunion will be shot in the same loft where the series’ first season was filmed.
Sitarah Pendelton-Eaglin, Candida Boyette-Clemons and Nadim Amiry are serving as executive producers for MTV Entertainment Studios. Jonathan Murray, Julie Pizzi, Erica Ross, Kevin Lee and Trish Gold are executive producers for Bunim/Murray Productions. Jacob Lane is co-exec producer. George Verschoor serves as consulting producer.
