Feel the nostalgia on your skin.
Break out your Chanel and get ready to head back to Les Deux as MTV's highly anticipated revival of The Hills is finally here. Almost one decade after the series' six-season run came to an end in 2010, The Hills: New Beginnings will reunite original stars Heidi Pratt, Whitney Port and Audrina Patridge, along with Spencer Pratt, Stephanie Pratt, Brody Jenner, Justin "Bobby" Brescia, Jason Wahler and Frankie Delgado.
While The Hills' original lead Lauren Conrad and her successor Kristin Cavallari are not returning for the revival, some fresh and familiar faces will be joining the group, including The O.C.'s Mischa Barton, Brandon Thomas Lee and Kaitlynn Carter, Jennifer Delgado and Ashley Wahler, the wives of Brody, Frankie and Jason.
But before we can move forward, respect must be paid to the pop culture phenomenon that was The Hills, a reality TV show that defined the late aughts for a generation and has left a permanent mark on pop culture.
Created by Adam DiVello, The Hills was a spinoff of MTV's popular Laguna Beach, following Lauren (aka "LC" in her earlier TV days) as she left the beach behind for Hollywood's hot spots as she tried to break into the fashion world. Viewers quickly became obsessed with her love life and friendships, namely with BFF-turned-mortal enemy Heidi, and the cast members quickly became celebrities, dominating the pages of tabloids throughout the show's run and beyond.
While the show has paved the way for so many reality TV shows that have followed, fans still wonder: Was any of it real? Did Lauren and Heidi really hate each other that much? Did Justin Bobby really hate being on camera that much? Was Spencer really that diabolical?
Ahead of The Hills: New Beginnings' debut, we've assembled everything you need to know and might not have ever known about the original run of one of TV's most iconic reality shows of all-time. It knows what it did...
The Hills: New Beginnings premieres Monday, June 24 on MTV.
