The Hills are alive … with a season and series finale this summer.
All we have to say is that this is a sad, sad day, for Spencer Pratt.
Just when Heidi Montag’s DDD “hills” were starting to rival the size of the Hollywood area the show is named after, MTV said the forthcoming Season Six will be its last.
The new season, debuting Tuesday, April 27, begins the final chapter. “We owe it to the fans and the show to go out on a high note,” says MTV president Tony DiSanto.
“This season will deliver on that goal in terms of drama, story, real emotion, and an organic culmination of this saga.” Not that we’re being overdramatic at all there.
The ladies of The Hills filming … possibly for the last time.
Final episodes of The Hills feature Heidi Montag’s plastic surgery being revealed to her mom, a scene executive producer Liz Gateley calls “touching, but heartbreaking.”
The cameras will also follow the cast dealing with substance abuse: Kristin Cavallari faces rumors of drug use after partying in Miami, and Stephanie Pratt gets a DUI.
Meanwhile, Audrina Patridge will date Ashlee Simpson’s reality TV ex, Ryan Cabrera. They tease the possible return of Lauren Conrad, but MTV makes no promises.
As for Spencer, who’s on anger management hiatus from Hills filming to “deal with some stuff,” creator Adam DiVello says “he’ll still be in most of the episodes.”
Phew. All 18 of you can officially exhale, reading this at home.
Are you sad The Hills is ending? Or has it run its course?
