MTV's 'The Real World' is being rebooted

"We're thrilled to reboot the show for today's audiences, representing and amplifying the real life, real people, real places and real social tensions of each country". The VOD service is teaming up with MTV Studios for a reimagined version of The Real World, the long-running reality series that documents a group of diverse strangers forced to live and work together.

The commission was announced by Facebook's Matthew Henick and Paresh Rajwat at Mipcom, where the pair were giving a keynote address.

Yes, The Real World is returning with three new seasons-one in the USA, one in Mexico, and one in Thailand-but they'll be on Facebook Watch.

MTV's The Real World paved the way for reality TV by putting complete strangers in a house and filming their every move, and by telling controversial stories around homophobia, racism, HIV/AIDS, and addiction.

Facebook Watch, the massive social network's hub for video, is the latest to jump on the nostalgia bandwagon, with multiple revivals of MTV's The Real World.

For this indicator, the 31-year-old Serb is ahead of only the current leader of the world rankings Rafael Nadal , whose 33 title. Djokovic dominated opponents behind his powerful serve, winning all 47 of his service games during the tournament.

MTV's "The Real World" was one of the first "social experiment" TV reality shows when it aired in 1992, spawning others like "Big Brother". Additional social elements will be introduced prior to launch and throughout the seasons. It was a reality show back before reality shows were so prevalent, and it grew into a cultural phenomenon. That's right: you can now play God with the Real World contestants.

The reboot is slated to debut on Facebook Watch in spring 2019.

Unlike previous seasons, the three new installments, filmed in Thailand, Mexico, and the United States, will be available exclusively on Facebook Watch.

MTV boss Chris McCarthy predicted that Facebook Watch was going to "create a whole a new genre of shared reality TV", and help shows lift off when it was "harder and harder to break through with more and more content" out there. "By partnering with Facebook Watch and BMP, we have the opportunity to impact culture and create a new genre of television all over again, while engaging the next generation of content consumers around the world", added MTV's McCarthy.
