Imagine the cast of The Hills almost a decade on and working as cutthroat realtors of the most exclusive and luxury real estate in Hollywood, and you basically have Netflix's new series Selling Sunset.

After all, it's from the same creator Adam Divello, so something to quench our thirst as we anticipate The Hills reboot.

The eight-part series is set in the world of exclusive Hollywood real estate and follows a group of female realtors from The Oppenheim Group, which sells luxury homes to affluent and celebrity clients, including Orlando Bloom.

According to their website, they also have more than $400 million in active listings and boast some of the most impressive properties in Los Angeles, including the largest home in the Hollywood Hills, and one of the largest listings in Los Angeles at $100 million. Casual.

The company is founded by twins Jason and Brett Oppenheim, who employ a lot of very glamorous, very blonde, and very ambitious women, and it's these women whose lives we follow both professionally and personally. It also features a beautiful backdrop of some of the most magnificent and palatial property we've ever seen, and the jaw-dropping commission they can make from selling it (we're talking hundreds of thousands).

Who's who?

You definitely wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of Christine, who prides herself on her integrity and loyalty, and says poaching clients off fellow realtors is "real estate 101." Despite this, she seems to be constantly giving everyone major side-eye, is too busy combing her hair with a Tangle Teezer to shake hands with her new colleague, and can't understand why she can't say what she wants without people getting offended!

She is close friends with colleague Mary, but basically told Heather she doesn't like her, mainly because she finds her voice and clothes annoying.

Maya seems really sweet and her tolerance is way higher than ours would be when we see her entertaining a rich bachelor who she wants to sell a house to, but he only seems interested in wining and dining her. She grew up in Israel and struggles with a long-distance relationship with her partner.

We'd definitely make friends with Chrishell, and not least because her husband is Jason Hartley from This is Us! The down-to-earth realtorwho comes from very humble beginningsis the newest addition to Oppenheim Group and is welcomed by most, apart from Christine who tells her a la Britney that she "better work, bitch."

Poor Heather really needs to sort out her personal life and stop it from leaking into her professional world. She's pretty sassy with her bosses, and she also better make friends with Christine because as we've hinted before, she's scary af.

Meet Mary

We nearly choked on our sandwich when Mary disclosed that her son is only a few years younger than her 25-year-old boyfriendno judgment, she just looks way too young! But will she make it third time lucky with Romain?

Will there be a Selling Sunset season 2?

We can only live in hope, so fingers crossed. The series was only released on March 22, but Adam did tell Variety: "We pitched it and Netflix was gracious enough to pick it up and order eight episodes.

"I think this is the first docu-soap for Netflix. It's going to be fun to see how it does."
