Twenty-six seasons after MTV's The Real World made television history in San Francisco, the popular reality franchise is returning to the city by the bay.

According to Deadline Hollywood, MTV has renewed The Real World for a 29th season.

The show documents the interpersonal relationships of a group of young strangers who audition to live together in a house for several months.

The show's 3rd season was set in San Francisco and included Pedro Zamora, a Cuban American AIDS educator and television personality. He was one of the first openly gay HIV-positive men to be portrayed in popular media. Zamora's inclusion on the show brought international attention to the AIDS pandemic and LGBT issues. Zamora died on November 11, 1994, the day after the final episode of Real World aired. He was 22.

The San Francisco season is largely credited with helping make The Real World a hit show.

The Real World season 29 will air sometime next year.
