MTV has ordered four additional seasons of its 17-year-old reality hit The Real World. The renewal will bring the reality series to an amazing 26 cycles. The network is also ordering another four seasons of The Real World/Road Rules Challenge, bringing the competition series to 21 cycles.
The early extended renewal will help spur creativity among the show’s creators:
“This allows us to plan,” executive producer Jon Murray said. “It helps us figure out where we’re going next and allows us to do some long-range thinking.”
