MTV’s “The Real World” will be filming its upcoming 29th season in San Francisco. The new season will hit airwaves next year.
“We’re excited about returning to San Francisco, the location of one of our most memorable seasons of ‘The Real World,’” said Johnathan Murray, executive producer of the show. “The city has always been a great place for young people to explore who they are and what they want to do with their lives.”
“The Real World” debuted in 1992 and filmed its third season (in 1994) in San Francisco. The cast included Pedro Samora, who lost his battle to AIDS at the age of 22 that same year.
In more recent years, “The Real World” hasn’t received the same ratings it once did. While still considered a breakthrough in reality television, the latest season of the show ended with 1.05 million viewers.
The 29th season of “The Real World” will premiere in 2014.
