After Deadline revealed that “MTV Cribs” is on its way back, MTV News followed up with a detailed announcement of the celebrities that would be featured on the show’s newest season.
That announcement lists 18 different homes that will be visited, with more to be added as the season progresses. Fans should get ready to explore the homes of celebrities such as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Martha Stewart, Rick Ross, Ryan Lochte, and Kathy Griffin. With any luck, viewers will be able to see a bit more of what goes on in those celebrity households besides just decorating, such as when Mariah Carey showed off an entire room full of shoes on one of the best-known episodes of “MTV Cribs.”
In an exciting development, Deadline also notes that the revival is being overseen by the show’s original creator, Nina Diaz. Diaz is now the chief creative officer of MTV Entertainment Group, which is producing the show. When asked about the revival, Diaz said, “‘Cribs’ didn’t simply introduce the celebreality genre, it created a blueprint for how we engage on social media. We are thrilled to usher in a new era of this iconic franchise for audiences around the world.”
Fans won’t have to wait long until they see the newest version of “MTV Cribs” incorporates the social media landscape that dominates celebrity culture today: The first episode is set to air on August 11.
