Laguna Beach‘s third season, the one with the new cast, concludes tonight at 10 p.m. ET. MTV is calling the one-hour show “a live interactive finale.”
The “live” part comes from the show’s live, in-studio reunion, which will be interactive. MTV says viewers “at home can call 888-311-4343 with their questions during the show.”
In addition, a press release says “the cast will move the viewing party online to answer fan questions and introduce an exclusive performance by Laguna Beachs very own local band Open Air Stereo who will perform live and exclusively on lagunabeach.mtv.com.” And MTV will use its online virtual game version of the show for “Chase, Kelan and the rest of the band” to hold “an exclusive virtual meet & greet.”
Viewership has declined this season, although the show’s creator says that’s to be expected with a brand-new cast.
