MTV is rebooting The Hills after eight years - but without one essential element
Reality series The Hills is returning for a reboot, although fans are annoyed that it does not include Lauren Conrad or Kristin Cavallari.
The popular US show, which ran from 2006 until 2010, followed the glamorous lives of young women living in Los Angeles.
It mainly focused on Conrad, who had moved to LA after appearing in reality series Laguna Beach, although Cavallari – who also appeared in Laguna Beach – took over as the lead cast member for the final season.
It also starred the likes of Heidi Pratt and her husband Spencer Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port and Stephanie Pratt.
MTV unveiled the reboot of the series during the MTV Video Music Awards as some of the cast members reunited on the red carpet.
Heidi and Spencer, as well as his sister Stephanie, Patridge and fellow former cast members Jason Wahler, Justin “Bobby” Brescia and Frankie Delgado posed for pictures together at the event.
A trailer has also been released, revealing that the new series is called The Hills: New Beginnings.
The short teaser clip shows footage of Hollywood, as Stephanie says: “It’s like we’re all growing up, it’s weird.”
However, following the news of The Hills’ return, fans aired their views over the absence of lead stars Conrad and Cavallari.

Why reboot The Hills when you can just give Heidi Montag her own show.— Phillip Henry (@MajorPhilebrity) August 21, 2018
