The 27th season of MTV’s hit show, “The Real World” is rumored to be set in Pittsburgh, PA. The Real World: Pittsburgh could air in 2012.
Although Pittsburgh has, in the past, been a casting location for The Real World, if it goes through, this will be the first season of the show that is actually set in the city, though it has long been in consideration.
A casting was held in March 2011 at Buckhead Saloon in Station Square, but the names of chosen cast members have not yet been released, nor has a definitive air date. In fact, as of today, there is no solid confirmation of Pittsburgh being the next location, other than a Wikipedia page and a lot of Twitter chatter.
That being said, it is highly likely that it will be set in Pittsburgh. Rumors have been swirling for years of a Real World: Pittsburgh, and it looks as though 2012 may be the year, as the chatter has really picked up as of late!
MTV isn’t a stranger to Pittsburgh — Chelsea of the hit show Chelsea Settles is from the area, too, hailing from Uniontown.
