"The Real World," "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills" were the jewels in MTV's reality show crown in the early 2000s. Then came "Jersey Shore," a less slick version of the beach-centric docu-soap, but with an amped up amount of drama. Now, MTV is looking back at some of their biggest successes, giving them a tweak and hoping today's tweens, teens and pop culture junkies will reconnect. It's hoping "Siesta Key" will be your new Monday night obsession and Tuesday morning watercooler convo.
"Siesta Key," which premiered Monday, follows seven college-aged men and women who live their (most-often bathing suit-clad) lives among the wealthy inhabitants of Siesta Key, located just off the coast of Sarasota, Florida.
Alex, the show's alpha male, is torn between Juliette and Madisson (and possibly others), but with the help of his long-time pals, he begins his quest to find the perfect girl. Lips will be locked, tears will be shed and, MTV hopes, DVRs will be set. The show airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on MTV, but who watches what's on television when it's actually on anymore? (Unless it's "Game of Thrones.")
Snapchat debuted its "Siesta Key" filter the day of the premiere.
MTV is also looking back to the past with another reboot, "TRL." Check out that story HERE.
To get fans in the mood, MTV programmed a marathon of "The Hills." Twitter was pretty excited about it.
Along with the season premiere of "Siesta Key," MTV's popular show "Teen Wolf" is getting ready for its final season. After the premiere, MTV released a sneak peak of a new episode. The cast recently professed their undying love for the show at San Diego's Comic-Con 2017.
