This is the true story...of seven strangers...picked to live in a house, work together, and have their lives taped. Find out what happens...when people stop being polite...and start getting real.
It's been 28 years since a handful of young unknowns first uttered those unforgettable words as MTV essentially kickstarted the genre of reality television with the debut of The Real World on May 21, 1992. And since then, there have been a whopping 32 seasons that have aired on the cable network, with the last, Real World Seattle: Bad Blood, airing in 2017.
And for a minute there, it seemed like the iconic series, which gave rise to spin-offs like Road Rules and The Challenge before being relegated to the discard bin as thing of the past, might be getting a new lease on life with the debut of The Real World: Atlanta, airing not on MTV but on Facebook Watch, last summer.
While it seems unlikely Facebook will air another season of the revival, the show's anniversary certainly got us thinking about our favorite roommates from yesteryear.
