The Hills: New Beginnings Cast: Who is in it?
‘The Hills: New Beginnings’ witnesses the reunion of several original cast members and a couple of fresh entrants. The reality TV series chronicles their personal and professional lives as they navigate love, career, and passion in Los Angeles. The returning members include Stephanie Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Justin Bobby, Heidi Montag, Brody Jenner, Whitney Port, and Spencer Pratt. Stephanie is already a popular face among dedicated fans of ‘The Hills’ because she appeared on the show from seasons three to six. She has also starred in ‘Made in Chelsea’.
Audrina, another staple from the parent title, is best known for her on and off relationship with Justin Bobby. However, after the show ended, she soon started an affair with Corey Bohan, got married, and had a daughter. Audrina filed for divorce in 2017. Well, Justin is in the revival as well! Let’s see what happens when these ex-flames come face to face once again. Heidi and Spencer, who also starred in the original, make a comeback in the show. They are now happily married and have a child.
Brody Jenner, from ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians‘ fame, joins the rest of the returning members. Whitney, who also has her own solo spin-off show, ‘The City’, appears in some scenes of ‘The Hills: New Beginnings’. She is a working mom who tries to manage the dual duties of raising a kid and taking care of herself. Among the new cast members, we see Mischa Barton and Kaitlynn Carter. Mischa is already recognized from starring in ‘The OC’, whereas, Kaitlynn is married to Brody Jenner.
The Hills: New Beginnings Plot: What is it about?
‘The Hills: New Beginnings’ is a reboot of the MTV reality show, ‘The Hills’, which aired on the channel from May 31, 2006, to July 13, 2010, spanning six seasons. The latter is, in fact, a spin-off of ‘Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County‘, and revolves around the personal and professional lives of multiple young women, living in LA. It soon developed into a fan-favorite, introducing several ‘umm, questionable?’ fashion statements, way back in the 2000s. Now, the sequel further chronicles the lives of the cast members, in their grown-up versions, as they juggle families, kids, professions, and friendships. Of course, it is a hell of a nostalgic ride, especially for devoted fans of its original run.
The format uses flashbacks to highlight some of the most memorable moments from the parent show, such as Spencer proposing to Heidi on that Ferris wheel, Audrina’s messy breakup with Justin, and an unpleasant fight between Spencer and Stephanie. The episodes then proceed to unravel the present when there’s an uncomfortable face-off scene between Audrina and Justin and reunions with new arrivals.
