When does 'The Hills: Next Gen' premiere?

MTV hasn’t announced an official release date for The Hills: Next Gen. The network recently gave the show the green light, but it doesn’t seem to have started filming yet. However, according to Deadline, The Hills: Next Gen’s team will take a more “diverse” approach with its cast.

While the new series will follow a similar premise to the original The Hills and include “a close group of twentysomething friends and aspiring entrepreneurs who are coming of age,” the next generation reportedly plans to be more reflective of L.A. in the new decade.
