The Hills is returning to MTV in a big way. After the network’s favorable reboot of Jersey Shore, producers are bringing back the cast of The Hills in all of their former glory. Here’s a quick rundown on everything we all know about MTV’s latest reboot.
MTV just confirmed the return of The Hills with a special teaser trailer. In the clip, Stephanie Pratt teases fans that everyone is all grown up now, which she admits is a little “weird.” The reboot, titled The Hills: New Beginnings, will see the return of all the main stars and their kids, who will appear as friends on the show. Like the original series, the reboot will focus on the lives and careers of each cast member.

Who will be returning for the highly anticipated reboot?
So far, we know that Spencer and Heidi Pratt, Whitney Port, Jason Wahler, and Audrina Partridge will be back in action. According to Us Magazine, New Beginnings will also introduce a few new characters, which includes an unnamed celebrity and a few popular bloggers.
MTV has not released too much on storylines this season, though Port recently opened up about the possibility of reuniting everyone from the original show.
“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,” Port explained.
Although the majority of the original cast are returning for the reboot, there are a few who are not coming back. That includes Lo Bosworth, who recently talked about shutting down the reboot rumors on her podcast.
When a network executive reached out to her about returning to the reality series, Bosworth told her “F**k no!” adding that she wants nothing to do with any of her former co-stars.

In addition to Bosworth, Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad are not returning to the show. Conrad, who was one of the main stars of the show, left the series in 2009. Her longtime enemy, Cavallari, replaced her on the show. Cavallari recently launched her own reality series, called Very Cavallari, and will not be a part of the reboot.
The Hills originally started as a Laguna Beach spin-off. The series ran on MTV for 4 years, from 2006 to 2010. The reboot news comes after several members of the original cast reunited at the MTV Video Music Awards Monday night.
The Hills: New Beginnings will premiere in 2019.
