When my parents granted our family home with cable, I knew my life would be changed forever once I had MTV. It was the channel that would essentially show me how my life was going to look as I grew up. I remember being in 8th grade and telling my history teacher that I aspired to be on Real World. Back then, it wasn’t actually the shitty show it became eight years ago. The cast members had jobs and they were tackling real life cultural issues. Shout out to the Seattle and San Diego season.
Even though I knew I’d have to lie to my parents if I wanted to go, Spring Break was the place I had to go. But let’s be real, that’s no place for a pre-teenager. Naturally, we tried to grow up way faster than we should have. I shared the news of Spring Break returning to the guys today and the first thing I asked was, “Are we too old for this?” The answer is yes. I didn’t think it would be possible, but yes, you can outgrow television shows and the culture that surrounds them.
The network announced today that it would be rebooting this program which will be the cause of all FOMO I’m sure. The next season of Spring Break will take place at the Grand Oasis Hotel in Cancun Mexico from March 19-21st. Has it always been this short? Probably, but MTV stretched this out for weeks in repeats! Here’s what you can expect: themed specials like before, celebrity guest appearances and of course everyone’s favorite – musical performances. Get ready to feel incredibly old watching this program this upcoming season.
Will this crash and burn like the revival of TRL or will this actually thrive? Guess we’ll know soon enough!
