Recently, MTV announced that they will be bringing The Hills back under the name of The Hills: New Beginnings. The reality TV show is going to be rebooted in 2019, but will be missing major cast members like Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari.
In honour of the announcement of Mischa Barton’s participation in the reality show reboot, we’ve put together a list of other shows that should have been brought back instead of the Laguna Beach spin-off.
Check out these shows that were way better and more deserving of a modern version than an LC-less The Hills.
Considering Mischa Barton is set to take part in The Hills reunion, they might as well reboot The OC instead. This show was Teen TV at its peak with plot twists and turns every few seconds. Someone please take us back to Californiaaaaaa (here we come).
Sure, 90210 was a reboot of Beverly Hills, 90210, but we deserve to see the edgy, glamorous TV drama return to prime time once more. This show was the campy guilty pleasure everyone needed in their life, and people frequently debate whether 90210 or The OC was the supreme teen drama.
Freaks and Geeks
The beloved Judd Apatow sitcom boasts a special place in many hearts of teens of the 2000’s. The show nailed the sad and comedic unfairness of being a teenager. If you’re trying to fill your Freaks and Geeks void and have rewatched the show way too many times, you should give Netflix’s Everything Sucks a try, especially if you’re a 90’s lover.
Hey Upper East Siders. One thing is for sure, Gossip Girl was way more deserving of a reboot than “The Hills” with its huge scandals and heartache. Plus, (SPOILER ALERT) no one really believed that Dan was Gossip Girl anyway. How excited would we be if Gossip Girl was rebooted? That’s one secret we’ll never tell. XOXO, Gossip Girl.
Making the Band
MTV’s Making the Band was a great trashy show about the real-life drama behind the making of O-Town, a male pop band. It followed the band from a countrywide talent search to their recording process, and it made young viewers feel like they were getting an insider look into the making of all of their favourite boy bands.
Saved by the Bell
Even hearing the name Saved by the Bell should make you feel nostalgic. Who doesn’t miss watching the lovable schemer Zack Morris go on adventures with his Bayside High School pals? The sitcom was full of corny lines and stonewashed jeans, and is definitely worth a good old fashioned rebooting.
One Tree Hill
The iconic American television drama series that ran for a whopping 9 seasons was the epitome of early 2000’s trends from crop tops and low rise jeans to pop punk music. If you were in the mood for some outrageous plot twists and unfathomable relationship drama this was the show to watch. Find me a current teen drama more ridiculous and entertaining than One Tree Hill, I dare you.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was a great NBC sitcom where Will Smith essentially played himself. The character was loosely based on his life, and he plays a poor young guy whose mother sends him to live with his rich aunt, uncle, and cousins in their mansion. The only problem is that no one would stop singing the theme song if the show came back to television.
That ’70s Show
That ’70s Show was a groovy suburban sitcom like no other. The show transported you back to the days of bell bottoms and flower power, but looked into conflict that was relevant to when it aired in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
The Simple Life
If you feel like watching a trashy show, you might as well watch the trashiest. The Simple Life tossed society princesses Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie into the life of simple farm girls, forcing them to experience a “simple life.” Would you not pay to see this show rebooted with modern society princesses like the Kardashians?
