'The Real World Homecoming: New York': Watch the Trailer and First 3 Minutes of the Premiere
By Zach Seemayer
The first reality roommates are moving back in together. Nearly 30 years after The Real World changed unscripted television forever, the show's cast members are reuniting for The Real World Homecoming: New York. In addition to the trailer, the franchise also released the first three minutes of the premiere.
Announced as part of the line-up for the new Paramount+ streaming service, the limited-event series brings the groundbreaking reality stars back to the same apartment in the Big Apple that they lived in back in 1992. Becky Blasband, Andre Comeau, Heather B. Gardner, Julie Gentry, Norman Korpi, Eric Nies and Kevin Powell will once again be showing the world -- after years of reality TV that followed in their show's wake -- what happens "when people stop being polite and start getting real."
The so-called "Seven Strangers" -- whose personalities and lives clashed and blended for fascinating reality TV three decades ago -- are looking back at their lives since last they interacted. As the trailer shows, the lessons they were learning then aren't much different from the lessons the world is still struggling with today. And despite so much time out of the house, it seems the stars themselves still know how to bring the drama.
The Real World first debuted in 1992 and over the course of 33 seasons, it helped shape a generation by highlighting culturally resonant and groundbreaking stories like never before, including one of the first LGBTQ+ relationships documented on a TV series. Watch the moment when it all began come full circle in a preview of the few minutes below.
