Back in 2006, when reality TV was just an infant, fans got to know a group of women sharing a home in the hills of Los Angeles. It didn’t take long before Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, Audrina Partridge, and Whitney Port were household names…at least among teenagers.
Fast forward to today. The Hills: New Beginnings will serve as a revival of the original show, granted with a few twists. For one, the entire cast won’t just be a new crop of fame-seeking teens. Heidi Montag, Stephanie Pratt, Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, and a handful of others will share a house with new cast members, including The O.C. star Mischa Barton. Will The Hills create new household names, or will the veterans hog up all the spotlight? Maybe a few unannounced stars will show up, or heck, there may even be a “leaked” sex tape. No matter who is in the house, the L.A. lifestyle will certainly bring out the best out of these aspiring stars.
Here’s everything you need to stream The Hills: New Beginnings.

The Hills: New Beginnings Reviews
What the critics are saying
- “Dull. … Everything is fake, except for the part where everyone really is hustling. … When you think about what’s driving The Hills, its emptiness becomes almost hilarious.” –Willa Paskin, Slate
- “I guess what’s so dismaying about New Beginnings is the watching of something that doesn’t understand itself, doesn’t seem to know what made it good and almost worthy to begin with. I wonder what LC thinks about it, if she’s watched. Maybe she hasn’t. Maybe she’s content in all her growth since, everything written after. I hope to feel that same peace when, next Monday night, I tune in to something else.” -Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
