SANTA MONICA, CA (August 30, 2012) — MTV’s pop culture smash “The Hills” returns this Labor Day weekend as a part of Retro Mania, MTV’s nostalgic look back at fan favorite shows, for a three day run of the entire series. Beginning on Friday, August 31 at 12:48 p.m. ET/PT through Sunday, September 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, MTV will air all six seasons of “The Hills” over the course of the weekend.

“The Hills” (Seasons 1 – 6)
When season two of “Laguna Beach” ended, MTV followed LC to “The Hills” of L.A. to watch her as she embarked upon a new fabulous journey. It’s one thing to be young and beautiful in Laguna Beach. It’s another to be young and beautiful in the city that values it most. “The Hills” followed Lauren (“LC” from “Laguna Beach”) as she made the move from her O.C. digs to Los Angeles, where she chased her dreams of entering the fashion business while balancing a full course load at college and a full social calendar. Through Lauren we met her new roommate, Heidi, who aspired to make the LA nightlife her whole life, Audrina, a receptionist who moved to LA in hopes of becoming a model/actress, and Whitney, Lauren’s fashionable co-worker and confidante at Teen Vogue. These four girls took full advantage of being in the “in” crowd of LA, hopping from club, to party, to hot restaurant as they lived the Hollywood lifestyle to the fullest.
