The rest is still unwritten.

Have you heard? MTV is bringing The Hills back. That's right, the show that gave us Lauren's single mascara tear, Speidi, and Kristin's iconic "piranhas" moment is returning with new episodes and storylines—and hopefully a theme song that's just as catchy as Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten." (Unless, of course, MTV has that song locked down for life.)

The cast gave us some exclusive deets on what to expect in the new show, which you can read all about in the Cosmopolitan US April issue, but here's what else we know about the reboot so far.

1. It's called The Hills: New Beginnings. 

And it's set to premiere on June 24, 2019. A teaser trailer dropped during the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, not long after some of the OG cast members reunited on the carpet. Now the official trailer is out, and it brings back a huge wave of nostalgia.

2. Most of the original cast is coming back. 

Along with Stephanie, expect to see brother Spencer, sister-in-law Heidi, and their son Gunner, who was born on October 1, 2017. During the big announcement, the Pratts posed on the carpet with Audrina Patridge, Frankie Delgado, Justin Bobby (!), and Jason Wahler and his wife, Ashley. Although Whitney Port didn't make it to the VMAs, she did confirm her return to the show via Instagram the next day.

3. The show will also feature the next generation, aka adorable babies. 

Make way for Delilah (daughter of Jason and Ashley), Kirra (daughter of Audrina), and miracle baby Gunner (son of Speidi).

4. Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari won't be on the reboot. 

According to a People source, Lauren is "in a different place in her life," working on her Kohl's line, launching her new podcast, and getting ready for bb number two. Kristin has her own show, Very Cavallari, on E! and is unable to break her contract. Per another People source, Kristin is "still close with Heidi and Spencer and is excited for them."

5. Brody Jenner finally signed on weeks after everyone else made the official announcement. 

In September 2018, Brody, who's had his fair share of reality TV (bring back Princes Of Malibu, please), announced he's officially joining the cast but mandated it shan't be called a "comeback." According to a Hollywood Reporter source, "Everybody wants Brody to come back. He was such a big part of the show." Along with Brody, you can expect his wife, Kaitlynn Carter, to pop up from time to time.

6. They've been filming since August 30, 2018. 

Heidi posted Instagram Stories where she was with the entire cast, and it looked like there was a camera crew in the background. And Audrina and Stephanie were seen on the streets of L.A. with a camera crew.

7. Mischa Barton—yes, that Mischa Barton—joined the cast in October 2018. 

Yes, this casting might feel random, but we’re always here for a Mischa Barton television event. Per a Page Six source, the actress who gave life to Marissa Cooper (then took it away when *SPOILER* Marissa died at the end of season three) was "around back in the day and went to all the clubs." That, and the fact that "she could make for good TV."

8. Expect to see Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee's son. 

Brandon Thomas Lee, the 22-year-old son of Pam and Tommy, officially joined the reboot cast on October 15, 2018. Per Deadline, details of exactly what he'll be doing on the show have been kept under wraps. Brandon, who loves selfies, most recently appeared in Netflix's Sierra Burgess Is A Loser opposite Internet Boyf Noah Centineo, who will most likely not be on The Hills (he's too busy filming the TATBILB sequel!).
