The time has come for the Real World cast and crew to pack up and bid farewell to Capitol Hill. Filming has wrapped for the 32nd season of the reality TV show that will feature a group of strangers living and partying on Capitol Hill, according to fan sites tracking the production.
18 years after the first season in Seattle, Real World producers staked out a new set in the 12th Ave Ballou Wright building between Pike and Pine. The office space-turned-Real World house was previously occupied by digital design firm Creature, which filed for bankruptcy shortly after leaving the space in May.MTV representatives have not returned calls on the status of the production. A representative for building owner Hunters Capital told CHS the space will likely be put back into use as an office. The show’s production company leased the space through September.
There have been some strange episodes during the two months of shooting, like when a Real World producer intervened in a bar altercation in order to keep a belligerent man from getting kicked out. Mostly the show was received as a fleeting oddity on the streets of Capitol Hill.
According to fan sites, season 32 features double the roommates as “a broken’ friendship, relationship, etc.” joins each of the original seven cast members in the house. Show producers said there would be some “dramatic surprises” in the season expected to air later this year.
