“Welcome to my crib — come on in!” Many MTV fans will remember being welcomed into some of their favorite celebrity homes in the early 2000s. Now, the network is rebooting Cribs. That means tours of all-new celebrity homes and hopefully more glimpses into celebrity fridges, too.

MTV ‘Cribs’ will return on August 11
“Cribs is coming back,” MTV shared on July 14. It’s been nearly 20 years since the original series became a pop-culture phenomenon.
“Cribs didn’t simply introduce the celebreality genre,” says Nina L. Diaz, President of Content and Chief Creative Officer, MTV Entertainment Group. “It created a blueprint for how we engage on social media. We are thrilled to usher in a new era of this iconic franchise for audiences around the world.”
The network is once again inviting fans into the homes of their favorite celebrities like Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Polizzi. Tune in to the premiere of Cribs on Wednesday, Aug. 11 at 9:30 PM EST.
MTV ‘Cribs’ reboot will follow the original format
When Cribs debuted in 2000, the show gave viewers an inside peek at celebrity residences. Running for 13 seasons, Cribs showed fans the most intimate spaces of roughly 185 celebrity homes, include their rooms of wall-to-wall collectibles, multiple-car garages, and of course, their refrigerators.
The Cribs reboot will follow the format fans love from the original series. Celebs will greet the cameras at their front door using the iconic phrasing “Welcome to my crib,” then show viewers around their lavish estates.
What’s more, the reboot couldn’t have come at a better time. After more than a year at home, our fascination with the way celebrities live has grown. At least, that’s how Craig Orr, vice president of original content and development for youth and entertainment at ViacomCBS Networks International, puts it.
“MTV Cribs continues to connect our worldwide audiences with their favorite stars as they welcome us into their homes for an exclusive tour,” Orr tells Variety. “This is pure property porn escapism at its most fabulous.”
