‘The Real World’ Renewed by MTV for 29th Season, Returning to San Francisco
The Real World has been renewed for a 29th season, Variety reports. The longrunning reality show will return to San Francisco for its latest installment. The last time the series picked strangers to live together in a house in the Bay Area was in 1994, when the internet was brand spanking new and the inclusion of gay, HIV positive Pedro was controversial. Maybe this time the roommates will reflect the San Francisco of today by working at a start-up! According to Variety, MTV may cancel the series after its 29th installment if the ratings don’t improve. The network may also tweak what has become a low-concept format by current reality show standards.
