Paramount+ announced today that The Real World is being revived for a new season featuring the show's original cast reuniting in their original New York City loft. The streaming service, which is being rebranded from CBS All Access, will premiere the show, titled The Real World Homecoming: New York on March 4 to coincide with its rebranding.

Credited with being one of the first reality shows to break out into the mainstream, The Real World originated on MTV back in 1992 and has since gone on to air 33 seasons. With the premise of inviting seven strangers to live in a house together, the show attracts young adults who take an interest on how these people will interact with one another. Originally set in Manhattan, the series has gone on to take place in various cities all over the world including Los Angeles, London, Miami, and Sydney.

Billed as a docuseries, the revival will allow viewers to catch up with housemates Becky Blasband, Andre Comeau, Heather B. Gardner, Julie Gentry, Norman Korpi, Eric Nies, and Kevin Powell as they reconnect in the big apple. The show will revisit surprising moments and issues that occurred during the season and reveal how the series transformed their lives since the cameras stopped rolling.
