The Real World Homecoming Season 2: Release Date, Cast And New Details

Reality TV is such an overcrowded field these days. There are lifestyle shows, competition shows, and dating shows. But reality TV got its start somewhere and if you ask some of pop culture's biggest buffs, they'll tell you it started with MTV's "The Real World" in 1992 (per IMDb).

The first season of the show began with "The Real World: New York." So, when it came time for the March 2021 premiere of "The Real World Homecoming," a Paramount+ series that reunites the casts of seasons past in the places they once frequented together, it only made sense that it would start with the cast of the first season. "Omg! The Real World Homecoming: New York is a treasure!" one fan tweeted. "I think I cried every episode. Really good television." 

Fans loved the concept and have been hoping for more. Those fans are in luck. Not only has "The Real World Homecoming" been renewed for a second season with "The Real World: Los Angeles," but a third one as well!  

When will The Real World Homecoming Season 2 be released?

The new episodes of "The Real World Homecoming" are just around the corner. In early October 2021, Paramount+ announced that Season 2 of "The Real World Homecoming" would premiere exclusively on the streaming service on Wednesday, November 24, 2021. 

The cast coming together marks the first time all of them have convened for any great length of time since that 1993 season of "The Real World: Los Angeles." A lot can change in nearly 30 years and the cast has certainly grown and evolved since their season aired. That said, they find themselves back with the emotions and mindsets of yesteryear, when they're back in the same spaces together. As old issues arise, so do emotional confrontations (per CNET).

All those unforgettable moments come back to life like they were just yesterday for the cast and fans can't wait to see it unfold.

Who is in the cast of Real World Homecoming Season 2?

Following the pattern started by "The Real World Homecoming" Season 1, which revisited the cast of the first season of "The Real World," Season 2 of "The Real World Homecoming" will follow the cast of "The Real World: Los Angeles," Season 2 of the popular TV reality show (per IMDb).

"The multi-episode docuseries will reunite original Los Angeles cast members Beth Anthony, Beth Stolarczyk, David Edwards, Glen Naessens, Irene Berrera-Kearns, Jon Brennan, and Tami Roman in the same iconic Venice beach house from 1993," Paramount+ announced in a press release. Sitting out the reunion will be original cast members Aaron Behle and Dominic Griffin. While Behle said no altogether, Griffin may reportedly make an appearance (per Futon Critic).

The season was remembered for introducing confessional-style cast interviews to reality TV, as well as being the first season to have cast members come and go (per The New York Daily News). In living together, the cast were the first to tackle some very serious issues that are still relevant today, such as same-sex relationships, issues of consent, and eating disorders (per Deadline).

Are there any new details about Real World Homecoming season 2?

One of the most memorable moments of "The Real World: Los Angeles" was between Tami Roman and housemate David Edwards. Edwards became the first member of a "The Real World" house kicked off the show after an argument which led to him ripping bed sheets off of Roman, then dragging her down the hall while she wore just underwear (per AV Club).

It appears the moment will be one of many that the cast relitigates in "Homecoming." The trailer for the season hints that Roman calls her husband, former NFL hopeful Reggie Youngblood, and asking him to come to the house. It hints at tension with Edwards, but it appears to be just one of many arguments that the season has in store. 

Meanwhile, the promise of season reuniting is piquing the interest of other "The Real World" alum. Jamie Chung from "The Real World: San Diego," which took place in 2004, hopes for the opportunity to revisit her season. "They gave me the opportunity to live with six other strangers in a house. And I think those are the growing things," she told People. "I don't think we have that with social media. You can't have a conversation and have disagreements and live with each other for three months. That's insane to do."

"I think people would kill each other these days. And [the show] teaches you to be empathetic and understand where the other person is coming from. I would go back in a heartbeat."
