The Hills: New Beginnings is set to resume filming soon; however, the cast will not be shacking up under one roof as previously discussed, reportedly due to Brody Jenner’s objections.
According to TMZ, other cast members were willing to leave L.A. to film in a house (or complex) large enough to accommodate the entire group, but Brody told MTV he wouldn’t film the show unless production remained in Los Angeles.
As The Ashley previously told you, the show was three episodes into production on Season 2 when filming was halted in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In June, it was announced that filming would resume at the end of July or early August; however, in mid-July MTV reportedly put an indefinite hold on production, despite producers taking extreme safety precautions and adhering to county and network guidelines.
While filming didn’t happen in August, conversations between Brody’s team and the network reportedly did, as Brody insisted that production remain in Los Angeles. The reason, he explained, was the show’s focus being on the cast and their lives in L.A., not a random location.
Brody also allegedly told MTV he was willing to wait and resume filming for Season 2 once a C0VID-19 vaccine was available.
While MTV continued trying to get Brody on board with the idea to leave L.A., the network ultimately caved and Season 2 of ‘The Hills: New Beginnings’ is set to resume within the next 2 to 4 weeks.
Despite MTV seemingly catering to his demands, Brody had yet to sign on as of Monday afternoon, according to TMZ, though he is expected to resume filming. Other cast mates who will be appearing on Season 3 include Audrina Patridge, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Justin Bobby Brescia, Frankie Delgado, Whitney Port, Brandon Thomas Lee, Jason Wahler, Kaitlynn Carter and new cast member Caroline D’Amore.
