MTV Studios and Bunim/Murray are teaming with Facebook to create three location-specific seasons of The Real World centered on casts in the United States, Mexico and Thailand. The new Real World is scheduled to premiere in spring 2019. “The Real World made history as the world’s first original reality show and trailblazing social experiment — and we’re thrilled to reboot the show for today’s audiences — representing and amplifying the real life, real people, real places and real social tensions of each country,” said Matthew Henick, Facebook’s head of content planning and strategy, in a statement.

Daria is the latest MTV revival in the works, joining Made, Real World and Aeon Flux
Animated comedy Daria & Jodie will reimagine feminist series Daria, which ran from 1997 to 2002. Daria & Jodie is part of the newly launched MTV Studios' mission to mine successful MTV properties from MTV's 35-year history. Teen makeover series Made, which launched in 2002, will be relaunched "in a world of 2D Instagram transformations." Plans to revive Aeon Flux and The Real World emerged earlier this month. Daria & Jodie will be written by Inside Amy Schumer and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt writer Grace Edwards. According to MTV's logline, "the iconic animated franchise is reinvented through the eyes of heroine Daria Morgendorffer and one of her closest friends Jodie Landon. These two smart young women take on the world, with their signature satirical voice while deconstructing popular culture, social classes, gender and race."
