The Real World is a reality television program on MTV originally produced by Mary-Ellis Bunim and Jonathan Murray. First broadcast in 1992, the show is the longest-running program in MTV history,[1] and one of the longest-running reality series in history, credited with launching the modern reality TV genre.[2]

The series was hailed in its early years for depicting issues of contemporary young-adulthood relevant to its core audience, such as sexuality, prejudice and substance abuse, but later garnered a reputation as a showcase for immature and irresponsible behavior.[3]

Following Bunim’s death from breast cancer in 2004, Bunim/Murray Productions continues to produce the program. The twenty-fourth season, set in New Orleans, premiered on June 30, 2010, and ended its first run on September 15, 2010.[4][5] A twenty-fifth season, set in Las Vegas, is currently in production, and will premiere in 2011.[2][6] The show has been picked up by MTV through its 26th season.[7]
