MTV Studios and Facebook Watch join forces

Facebook and MTV are revamping 'The Real World'

Facebook is rebooting The Real World, which seems adorably quaint

Studios, a unit of Viacom's MTV, just announced a partnership with Facebook Watch to re-imagine the groundbreaking series The Real World. The series is expected to make its return in spring 2019 with additional Thailand and Mexico-based seasons also set for release the same year. Using the social tools ingrained within Facebook Watch, such as Facebook Live, Premieres and live chat tool Watch Party, viewers will be able to submit themselves for casting consideration, and also interact with cast members over the course of the season.

Facebook Watch is launching three seasons of the show, one in the USA, one in Mexico and one in Thailand.

The final season "Real World Seattle: Bad Blood" aired in 2016.

Created for MTV by Jonathan Murray and the late Mary-Ellis Bunim of Bunim/Murray Productions, The Real World was a trailblazing social experiment.

The announcement was made by Matthew Henick, Facebook's Head of Content Planning and Strategy, Paresh Rajwat, Facebook's Director of Product Management, and Chris McCarthy, President of MTV, during Facebook Watch's presentation at MIPCOM 2018. Facebook Watch was originally launched in just the USA, but expanded to global users back in August.

Facebook is creating three new seasons of the reality show that stuck strangers together in a house - shooting one each in Mexico, Thailand and the USA - and will debut them next spring. That's right: you can now play God with the Real World contestants. Studios is teaming with Facebook's streaming service to re-launch the popular reality show for a whole new generation.
