“MTV's The Real World has been credited with creating the Reality TV genre and was one of the first series that tackled important and yet unrepresented topics of the time, from HIV/AIDS, Race, Gender, Orientation and Religion,” said Chris McCarthy, president of MTV Entertainment Group. “With Paramount+ being the home to so many global reality hit franchises, it seems only fitting to bring back the franchise and cast that started it all.”
ViacomCBS is reviving "The Real World" for streaming service Paramount Plus. The venerable reality TV franchise will be part of the March 4 launch of the service, which is effectively a rebrand of existing streamer CBS All Access.
The series broke ground in the reality docu-drama format and in representation on TV, dealing with issues such as the HIV epidemic. "The Real World" premiered in 1992 on MTV and ran through 2017.
