MTV today announced that Mischa Barton (The O.C.) will join original cast members Audrina Patridge, Brody Jenner, Frankie Delgado, Heidi Pratt, Jason Wahler, Justin “Bobby” Brescia, Spencer Pratt, Stephanie Pratt and Whitney Port for the return of the iconic series The Hills: New Beginnings.
Kaitlynn Carter, Jennifer Delgado and Ashley Wahler will also join the cast.
Based off the docuseries that changed the landscape of TV history, The Hills: New Beginnings will reunite original cast members and exciting new faces as they navigate their personal and professional lives in Los Angeles.
The Hills: New Beginnings is slated to premiere in 2019. The series is produced by MTV and Evolution Media.
The Hills aired for six seasons on MTV from May 31, 2006, until July 13, 2010. Developed as a spin-off of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, the series originally focused on Lauren Conrad (who is not returning for the new show) as she pursued a career in the fashion industry. Conrad left the series halfway through the fifth season, and was replaced by fellow Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County cast member Kristin Cavallari.
A reunion special, The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now, with Lauren Conrad aired on MTV on August 2, 2016.
