Series history and format
The longest-running program in MTV history, reality series Real World has been on the air since 1992. It was created by Mary-Ellis Bunim and Jonathan Murray, and is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions and Banjay Entertainment. Up until 2008 the series was broadcast in a 30-minute format, and since then the episodes have been running for 60 minutes. The current 31st season premiered on MTV on March 17, 2016.
Real World features a group of young adults who are complete strangers, and are chosen through an audition process. They proceed to live together for several months while their day-to-day life is being constantly filmed, with only bathrooms being off-limits. Real World moves to a different city each season, with the current 31th installment, titled Go Big or Go Home, filmed in Portland`s Pearl District. The members of the cast chosen for each of the seasons come from different backgrounds and are diverse in race, sex, sexual orientation and religious affiliation. Issues of prejudice, politics, religion, and, of course sex and romance are, naturally, all among the topics that come up in heated conversations between the housemates. On-screen romantic involvements are certainly of interest to the many fans of the show.
Reviews and renewal potential
Despite the mostly negative early reviews the show quickly became a hit with the viewers, and remains popular to this day. There have been issues of authenticity, but these do not seem to worry the fans too much. Real World is currently averaging approximately 500,000 viewers per episode, and has a 5/10 rating on IMDb. Cancelation of the show does not seem feasible at this point, but stay tuned for relevant news.
UPDATED April 18, 2016: MTV`s veteran series Real World has apparently been renewed for season 32. The program has been holding casting calls across the country for season 32 prior to its March 17 debut of season 31. The confidence with which MTV sticks to Real World despite the significantly slumping ratings might mean that there is some explosive twist coming to transform the format, or it might just mean separation anxiety, since the show`s been a staple of the network since 1992.
