The Hills is an MTV reality show that follows the lives of young women living in Los Angeles. The show, which is a spin-off of the popular Laguna Beach, first premiered in 2006 following Lauren Conrad as she went to school, interned at Teen Vogue and met boys in L.A.
Along the way, viewers met her friends Heidi Montag, who aspired to be a PR party girl; Whitney Port, a fellow intern at the teen magazine; and Audrina Patridge, who worked at a photo studio.
Port left the show and moved to New York to star in her own spin-off The City. Cast members were added throughout the seasons and have included Spencer Pratt, Stephanie Pratt, Brody Jenner, Lo Bosworth and Holly Montag. Conrad left the show after season 5 and was replaced by another former Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari.
In March of 2010, MTV confirmed that the show’s sixth season would be its last. In 2019, the network decided to bring the show back, with some new cast members, including Mischa Barton.
