The Hills: New Beginnings is getting set for, well… a new beginning.
A new report has confirmed that the reality show is set to become one of the first programs to resume filming, as it aims to soon ramp up production once again after taking time off due to the coronavirus.
But things won’t exactly look the same when Spencer Pratt and company return to your living rooms.
An insider has told Page Six that filming will start again in late July or early August.
It will attempt to do so under the safest conditions possible.
“Production is working with health officials in Los Angeles County to assure a healthy filming situation,” the insider told this outlet, adding;
“They will be doing some self-shooting but mostly back to filming with the new health regulations in place for filming.”
The program’s look won’t be all that’s different, however.
While Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Montag, Pratt, Justin Bobby, Frankie Delgado, Whitney Port, Brandon Thomas Lee, Jason Wahler and Kaitlynn Carter are all returning to the MTV series, two Season 1 regulars are on the outs:
Neither Mischa Barton nor Stephanie Pratt will not be a part of Season 2.
Taking Barton’s place?
Caroline D’Amore, who the ex-The OC star previously trashed as “too boring.“
Actually, she said a lot more than this after the casting switcheroo was announced.
“As if anyone would watch @carolinedamore try to hoc her boring ass pasta bowls and greasy pizza on tv,” Barton scoffed in March.
“Tried that. It was like watching paint dry.”
Pratt, meanwhile, made it clear when this Hills revival was renewed for Season 2 that she would not be part of the cast.
Was it her choice or that or the producers? We aren’t certain.
But Pratt made headlines about a year ago when she bashed the living Hell out of Spencer ant Heidi.
“Spencer often screamed that everyone hates me, is fake nice to me and to go back to London because no one wants me here,” she wrote back then.
“Omg and Heidi- I have no words for how evil you truly are- you had no choice to admit all of the lies you’ve been spewing about me was for a magazine cover and for real WE ALL KNOW WHAT YOU DID 10 years ago.”
Stephanie also later said that she hopes protestors and looters get shot in the wake of the recent George Floyd killing.
So, yeah. We won’t miss her at all.
Brody and Kaitlynn Carter, meanwhile, split shortly after Season 1 ended.
But both will be back for Season 2.
“He has no problem with it,” the insider told Page Six. “If the show is true to their lives, she’s a part of his life even if they’re not together.”
As for whether the show will tackle Carter’s alleged fling with Miley Cyrus?!?
We’ll need to tune in to find out.
