Stephanie is already a popular face among dedicated fans of ‘The Hills’ because she appeared on the show from seasons three to six. She has also starred in ‘Made in Chelsea’.

Heidi and Spencer from the original cast, are happily married and have a child now, also came back for the reboot.

She is a working mom who tries to manage the dual duties of raising a kid and taking care of herself. Among the new cast members, we see Mischa Barton and Kaitlynn Carter.

The Hills: New Beginnings Plot: What is it about?
‘The Hills: New Beginnings’ is a reboot of the MTV reality show, ‘The Hills’, which aired on the channel from May 31, 2006, to July 13, 2010, spanning six seasons. The latter is, in fact, a spin-off of ‘Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County‘, and revolves around the personal and professional lives of multiple young women, living in LA. It soon developed into a fan-favorite, introducing several ‘umm, questionable?’ fashion statements, way back in the 2000s
The reboot further chronicles the lives of the cast members, in their grown-up versions, as they juggle families, kids, professions, and friendships. Of course, it is a hell of a nostalgic ride, especially for devoted fans of its original run.
The format uses flashbacks to highlight some of the most memorable moments from the parent show, such as Spencer proposing to Heidi on that Ferris wheel, Audrina’s messy breakup with Justin, and an unpleasant fight between Spencer and Stephanie. The episodes then proceed to unravel the present when there’s an uncomfortable face-off scene between Audrina and Justin and reunions with new arrivals.
Yes, just like its predecessor, there’s plenty of drama and a lot to look forward to. If you did not know already, ‘The Hills’ was the first structured reality show where many plot lines were fabricated for television. However, ‘New Beginnings’ is a more authentic counterpart.
In season 2, be ready to see further development — gossips, romance, breakups, fights — in the lives of your favorite characters.
