The new iteration of the iconic reality show will launch with three versions, in Atlanta in the U.S. and internationally in Mexico and Thailand. The reimagined series expands on connecting people from wildly divergent backgrounds to find common ground on the issues that often divided them.
In the U.S. version, seven strangers come together at a house in Atlanta, as, per MTV, “every moment of their lives is taped as people stop being polite and start getting real.”
It was announced in October that the reimagined Real World would launch on Facebook Watch as part of a landmark deal between MTV Studios and Banijay-owned producer Bunim/Murray Productions.
The original Real World aired for 32 seasons from 1992-2017 on MTV. The last edition, Real World: Seattle Bad Blood, aired for 12 episodes between late 2016 and early 2017.
