Created for MTV by Jonathan Murray and the late Mary-Ellis Bunim of Bunim/Murray Productions, The Real World has aired 33 seasons, as well as spinoffs Road Rules for 14 seasons and The Challenge, which is currently airing its 36th season.
Multiple seasons of The Real World and its spinoffs are available to stream now on CBS All Access, soon to be rebranded as Paramount+.
"The Real World is been credited with creating the reality TV genre and was one of the first series that tackled important and yet unrepresented topics such as LGBTQ, race, gender, HIV/AIDS and religion," Chris McCarthy, president of MTV Entertainment Group, said in a statement. "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 for the launch."
Paramount+, a ViacomCBS subscription service which is an expanded rebrand of CBS All Access, launches March 4 and will also include a massive portfolio of content from CBS, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount, BET and Comedy Central, as well as all the current and upcoming CBS All Access original series (like Star Trek Discovery and The Good Fight).Eric Nies, Julie Gentry, Heather B. Gardner, Kevin Powell, Norman Korpi, Andre Comeau and Becky Blasband return to the original New York City loft starting March 4
