The original seven roommates from MTV’s The Real World: New York are reuniting for The Real World Homecoming: New York, a multi-episode docuseries. The series will air on streaming service Paramount + (formerly CBS All Access) and will star all seven of the original MTV housemates: Becky Blasband, Norman Korpi, Kevin Powell, Eric Nies, Julie Gentry, Heather B. Gardner, and Andre Comeau.
Created by Mary-Ellis Bunim and Jonathan Murray, The Real World debuted nearly 30 years ago on MTV. Billed as “the true story of seven strangers picked to live in a loft and have their lives taped,” The Real World helped launch the modern reality TV genre. The series ran for 25 years on MTV before moving to Facebook Watch in 2019.
Homecoming went into production recently in New York City; and the network was able to secure the same SoHo loft where The Real World: New York was filmed. The Real World Homecoming” New York premieres Thursday, March 4 on Paramount+.
