VH1 is reviving the celebrity reality show The Surreal Life for a seventh season. The series returns in the fall after leaving the airwaves in May 2006.
Kim Coles, Tamar Braxton, Dennis Rodman, August Alsina and other celebrities join the cast for a redefined version of the original series. The various join together in what VH1 calls a “wild, over the top journey that pushes them to reveal different sides of themselves in surprising ways.”
The Surreal Life is known for bringing together some of the biggest names in pop culture and creating many unforgettable moments in reality television,” said Nina L. Diaz, president of content and chief creative officer at MTV Entertainment Group. “We are excited to see how this stellar celebrity cast will make captivating television for audiences everywhere.”
The modernized Surreal Life will be produced by 51 Minds Entertainment.
Its first two seasons aired on the former WB Network (which became The CW) before moving to VH1. It became one of VH1’s most popular franchises, leading to multiple spin-offs including Flavor of Love and I Love New York.
