Yes, The Real World is returning with three new seasons-one in the US, one in Mexico, and one in Thailand-but they'll be on Facebook Watch.

Facebook and MTV are aiming to live up to the original show's tagline and mission statement: "The true story of seven strangers, picked to live in a house, work together and have their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop being polite. and start getting real".

Over the summer, MTV Studios announced plans for reboots of older MTV shows like Daria, Aeon Flux and The Real World.

"The show that invented modern reality television returns to its roots". Celebrated for its diverse casting and honest portrayal of contemporary young adulthood, Real World generated conversations that reverberated loudly though media and youth culture. Facebook is teaming up with MTV for the relaunch, which will stream exclusively on its Watch service, reports Variety.

Facebook Watch, the massive social network's hub for video, is the latest to jump on the nostalgia bandwagon, with multiple revivals of MTV's The Real World.

Facebook Watch is widening its interactive game-show format Confetti internationally, and it will launch a program called The World's Most Amazing Dog, a worldwide interactive competition series in partnership with animal-video publisher The Dodo.
