It’s been a decade since The Hills graced our TV screens, and ever since then, it’s changed what we come to expect from reality television.
As ETonline celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the hit series’ MTV debut with our very own “Hills Week,” several key players hinted that a revival could be coming.
“He was like, ‘We kind of want everybody in,’ and it was the first time in a long time I was like, ‘Yeah, let’s do it!’” Brescia, 34, shared. “I figure now is a good enough time.” ET has reached out to Netflix for comment.
Rumors of a possible Hills revival are rooted in truth, as executive producer Liz Gateley noted, “I know that there were some rumblings about it, but I don’t think it’s happening -- yet, anyway.”
“It would be great to do it, though,” said Gateley, who is now Head of Programming at Lifetime. “It would be nice to see them all together -- just even in a reunion, directors’ chair [sit-down style of] special would be interesting.”
Gateley added that a half-hour “Where Are They Now?” special would be a treat for viewers who grew up watching the gang in the early 2000s. For now, it looks like they'll get to catch up with at least one of the Hills favorites.
On Tuesday, Hills star Lauren Conrad announced she would be appearing in a one-off MTV special, The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now, on Aug. 2, where she'll look back on the cultural phenomenon and update fans on her blossoming life.
“They were such great kids,” Gateley said of the cast. “We all have that connection. It was definitely fun to be a part of it, and the cast really where what made it special because they were really friends. They were really enemies. They were really having their hearts broken and going through universal coming-of-age truths that everyone painstakingly goes through.”
Meanwhile, Whitney Port -- who starred on The Hills before seguing into her own spinoff, The City -- expressed optimism over the possibility of a full cast get-together, saying she had “heard rumblings” of a revival.
“I would definitely be down. I think it would be fun,” the 31-year-old fashion designer said. But, Port stressed that “it would definitely be hard” to get everyone together to film new episodes, adding that “it would be different.”
“It would be cool to see where everybody’s lives are at, now that we’re all grown up and everybody’s got big, interesting lives,” she said.
Kristin Cavallari, now married to NFL star Jay Cutler and mother to three young children, echoed Port’s sentiments.
“We’ll see! I mean, we all are in such different places in our lives, you know?” the 29-year-old fashion designer said. “Everyone is getting married, everyone is having babies, so we’ll see. But, I think it would be fun. I would be into it.”
Conrad, who is married to musician-turned-lawyer William Tell, did have one nostalgia-inducing idea.
“I’d probably do a throwback Solo cup house party,” the 30-year-old said. “Just go back!”
