Unlike previous installments, the social conversation on Facebook Watch will power the audience experience.

MTV's The Real World was an originator of reality TV. In addition to a new season for US audiences, Facebook Watch and MTV Studios are also developing native productions in Thailand and Mexico.

MTV's decade-spanning reality show, The Real World, is set to make a return.to Facebook's on-demand video platform, Facebook Watch. How much are people really strangers when Googling any name brings up an annotated life history?

The commission was announced by Facebook's Matthew Henick and Paresh Rajwat at Mipcom, where the pair were giving a keynote address. Available exclusively on Facebook Watch and slated to premiere in Spring 2019, the new seasons will introduce interactive social and community features that empower fans to shape the action and connect across mobile, desktop and Facebook's TV app. Creator Bunim/Murray Productions is co-producing the new series with MTV Studios, and pre-production is underway in each location.

"MTV's The Real World helped to define a generation and created a new genre of television with a simple yet powerful idea of connecting people from wildly divergent backgrounds to find common ground on the issues that often divided them". Facebook's press materials reminded me that The Real World did take TV to uncharted territories, such as televising the first same-sex commitment ceremony. Additional social elements will be introduced prior to launch and throughout the seasons. This makes us think, isn't Facebook just the flawless platform for this kind of show? Facebook Watch will also release daily drops of scenes from forthcoming episodes leading into the weekly half-hour installments.

Elsewhere, Facebook Watch is taking its interactive game-show format Confetti worldwide with local versions of the show due to launch across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America by the end of the year.
