Last week’s speculation that production issues would delay the premiere of The Hills: New Beginnings was, thankfully, proven unfounded.

MTV just released a trailer for the reboot. In it, fans can see a montage of scenes from the original show. If the visual memories aren’t enough, you get to hear the same Natasha Bedingfield theme song.  It’s clear this whole project is marketed as a nostalgia trip for The Hills lovers, but they could have picked a new song.

On Tuesday, despite the need for reshoots, MTV announced June 24th as a premiere date and released a trailer.

But, unlike The Hills, there is no Lauren Conrad, or bestie Lo Bosworth to grace the screen.  Kristen Cavallari is also not participating.  She stepped in as the female lead when Lauren left the series.

According to an article by Page Six, those that are returning include Whitney Port, Stephanie Pratt, Frankie Delgado, Brody Jenner, Spencer Pratt, and wife Heidi Montag.  And in the only new footage shared in the trailer, Audrina Patridge and Justin Bobby are also back to rehash their past over a cozy dinner.

Watch it if you feel like going down memory lane.  You can relive the proposal that created “Speidi.” Will he be carrying his cache of crystals around again?

There’s also a great scene of LA resident gas-lighter Spencer telling his sister Stephanie, “I’m sorry you’re making yourself cry.”

But there are some new cast members.  Mischa Barton and Brandon Lee will be starring as well.  Perhaps the next generation will be featured.  Spencer and Heidi bring their son Gunner to red carpet events and had him auditioning for a Super Bowl commercial at four weeks old.

There was a major lack of any new material in the trailer. Still, MTV insists that “now its time to start all over again.”
