The Real World Homecoming season 3 will start filming soon, and will reunite the cast of season 9 of the MTV franchise: the original Real World New Orleans cast.
That means filming will be complete before The Real World: Homecoming season two even airs. That season premieres in just a few weeks, and will reunite some of the cast of The Real World: Los Angeles.
It follows the first Homecoming, which took us back to the New York loft for an excellent season of television.
Those are, of course, the first two seasons of The Real World. But for the third Homecoming season, MTV and Paramount+ will not be reuniting the cast of The Real World: San Francisco.
Instead, they’re skipping ahead to season nine, and the year 2000.
That’s when The Real World: New Orleans premiered, and yes, that’s the cast for the next The Real World Homecoming. (The franchise returned to the city 10 years later and MTV decided to also title that 2010 season The Real World: New Orleans.)
At the end of September, when Paramount+ announced The Real World: Los Angeles, it said that the series was renewed for season three, but has not yet announced any details about that season.
The original New Orleans cast’s home was The Belfort, a mansion built in the 1800s that was located at 2618 St. Charles Avenue, not far from Bourbon Street.
It’s not clear if it’ll host the reunion, though both of the first two seasons of The Real World Homecoming returned to their original filming locations.
All of The Real World New Orleans cast is returning for Homecoming
The cast of The Real World: New Orleans—all seven of them—will begin production on a new season soon, perhaps as early as next week. They’re beginning a short quarantine this weekend, according to the reliable MTV spoiler known as PinkRose at Vevmo, and then will film.
The cast members are:
- David Broom
- Melissa Howard
- Jamie Murray
- Kelley Limp
- Danny Roberts
- Matt Smith
- Julie Stoffer
The season got a lot of attention because Danny Roberts was dating an officer in the military, Paul Dill, who was serving during the time of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” so his face was blurred when he visited Danny. He later appeared unblurred on MTV and in the media after he left the military.
The cast also included Mormon student Julie Stoffer, who was attending BYU and defying the school’s prohibitions against living with men while on The Real World, and was later suspended as a result, and Kelly Limp, who married the actor Scott Wolf after the show.
Danny and Kelly are still close friends, or at least were in 2018, when Danny told EW that he lives with HIV, and called Kelly “my life sister. She was one of the first people I turned to and talked to. She has been strong and helped me through this.”
