The Real World show will be premiered somewhere in spring 2019
The Real World of MTV, which made its first appearance on 21st May 1992, is finally coming back to entertain the viewers. The Real World show is known for celebrating the characters and memorable moments of most ground-breaking shows in television from the past ten years. The premiere date of the "reimagined" show is expected to come out in spring 2019.
All credit of bringing back the remarkable show goes to Facebook. It all is possible due to the social media giant's interest in diving in the original video domain and aims to launch the "reimagined" version of the show on its video-centric Watch tab.
"The Real World made history as the world's first original reality show and trailblazing social experiment — and 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," Matthew Henick, Facebook's head of content planning and strategy, said in a statement.
Facebook has partnered with MTV Studios and Bunim/Murray Productions for co-producing The Real World show. Interestingly, Bunim/Murray Productions is famous for its contribution to the reality TV shows like The Real World, Road Rules, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
MTV's The Real World show producers have planned to exhibit the show in various continents that will include location-specific seasons centered on casts in Thailand, US, and Mexico. The announcement of it was made at the trade show MIPCOM in Cannes. It also marked the first-ever original Facebook show.
Facebook Watch's programming was launched last year in August, and soon, The Wall Street Journal published a report that stated social network's plan to invest $1 billion on content in the next 12 months.
Apart from it, Facebook is also planning to broadcast its interactive game show Confetti in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Also, there is another show in the pipeline, The World's Most Amazing Dog, which is described as "a global interactive competition series that celebrates amazing dogs and their owners from around the globe."
