Second season of The Hills will “start shooting right away”

Production on the second season of The Hills will begin almost immediately, according to the show’s executive producer. Tony DiSanto tells the New York Post, “We’ll start shooting right away because you don’t want to potentially miss cool stuff that’s happening in these people’s lives.”

The finale, which aired last night, only “wrapped about three weeks ago,” according to the paper, so the aftermath of Lauren’s decision to follow her man instead of her career.

Thus, producers don’t want to miss anything. “We’re going to dive right in ASAP. We’re going to get the troops back together and jump in,” DiSanto said.

Season two is expected to air sometime next year.
