Laguna Beach renewed for third season; spin-off 8th & Ocean will debut early next year

Nor surprisingly, MTV’s most popular Monday night show has been renewed for a third season. Laguna Beach will return next year, but there’s no word when exactly it’ll return or who will be featured on the show. Because, like, aren’t many of them graduating?

MTV also officially revealed a rough debut date for its previously announced Laguna Beach spin-off, 8th & Ocean, which will kick off early next year. That show will be set in Miami Beach and will be shot like its sibling series, but will follow vapid, empty models instead of vapid, empty rich teenagers. Those 10 models, both men and women, will “live in a South Beach apartment complex,” reports.

Tony DiSanto, the series’ executive producer, says, “Our goal with ‘8th & Ocean’ is to pull back the curtains on this seemingly glamorous business and present the real life drama of this dynamic group of young models. We are going for a unique cinematic style with a narrative which will allow the viewers to feel as though they are there, eavesdropping on the lives of these up-and-coming models.”
