‘The Hills’: Everything We Know About the Revival and Who Won’t Be Back
It’s official! MTV has announced the revival of The Hills but the rest is still unwritten for two of the show’s biggest stars.
The network confirmed the news on Aug. 20, 2018, which is the same night the cast reunited on the red carpet for the MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Fans were delighted to see the reunion but couldn’t help but notice that Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari were not in attendance. It’s been reported that neither of the ladies will be part of the revival.
Back in 2004, Conrad was cast in the reality series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. Then in 2006, she moved to Los Angeles and was tapped to star in its spin-off series The Hills. Cameras followed her every move as she pursued a career in the fashion industry and became a fan favorite, but in 2009 she left the show and was replaced by her former Laguna Beach nemesis, Cavallari.
We’d love to see Conrad back for the reboot, however, sources have said that she decided not to return because “she’s in a different place in her life. But she wants everyone to enjoy themselves. She wishes everyone the best.”
As for Cavallari, fans were also hoping their favorite villain would return but she will not be appearing in the reboot either. The mother of three is currently starring in her own reality show on E! titled Very Cavallari, which follows her and employees at her store Uncommon James in Nashville, Tennessee.
Those set to return are Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, Audrina Partridge, Jason Wahler, Stephanie Pratt, Justin Bobby Brescia, Frankie Delgado, and Whitney Port.
The idea of reunion had been up in the air for a while and several of the OG cast members gave their thoughts on doing a revival.
“I would love to do a Hills reunion, so if it happens, I’m there,” Montag previously said.
Port was also down for it but wasn’t sure if everyone else could do it with all their commitments saying, “I think it would be hard to get everybody back together again just because we’re all in such different places, but it’d definitely be something fun.”
Partridge was open to it as well but explained that she needed to work a few things out before she signed on. “I would just really depend on what it was going to be and whether or not I’d want my daughter to be involved,” she said.
The upcoming series titled The Hills: New Beginnings will chronicle the original cast members with their children and friends in their personal and professional lives. It’s set to premiere in 2019 and sources revealed that one celebrity and two bloggers are also joining the cast.
The Hills was on the air for six seasons before it ended in 2010.
