'The Hills' Is Dunzo After This Season

How will the hipsters of Los Angeles know which hot clubs to frequent now? EW.com exclusively reports that MTV reality series 'The Hills' will end its six-season run this summer.

"I think we've told the story of struggle and of finding yourself in L.A.," 'Hills' creator Adam DiVello says. "A lot of these kids have found themselves and have certainly embarked on different careers and different paths."

The show, a spin-off of another MTV reality hit, 'Laguna Beach,' gets credit (blame?) for unleashing not only Lauren Conrad on pop culture, but also the ubiquitous TMZ fixtures that are Audrina Patridge, Spencer Pratt and his newly-plasticized wife, Heidi Montag.

In fact, the first episode of the final season (premiering Apr. 27) will focus on Montag, as she heads back to her Colorado hometown to reveal her drastic (and much maligned by fans and the media) plastic surgery makeover to her mother.How will the hipsters of Los Angeles know which hot clubs to frequent now? EW.com exclusively reports that MTV reality series 'The Hills' will end its six-season run this summer.

"I think we've told the story of struggle and of finding yourself in L.A.," 'Hills' creator Adam DiVello says. "A lot of these kids have found themselves and have certainly embarked on different careers and different paths."

The show, a spin-off of another MTV reality hit, 'Laguna Beach,' gets credit (blame?) for unleashing not only Lauren Conrad on pop culture, but also the ubiquitous TMZ fixtures that are Audrina Patridge, Spencer Pratt and his newly-plasticized wife, Heidi Montag.

In fact, the first episode of the final season (premiering Apr. 27) will focus on Montag, as she heads back to her Colorado hometown to reveal her drastic (and much maligned by fans and the media) plastic surgery makeover to her mother.

"We tell the whole story. We pick right up where Heidi goes and sees her parents," DiVello says. "And our cameras are there that minute the mother opens the door and sees her daughter for the first time."

DiVello says much of the 12-episode season will be spent covering 'The Hills' stars' tabloid exploits, including Patridge's relationship with singer Ryan Cabrera, Spencer's personal problems (despite gossip to the contrary, Spencer will be in almost every episode of the season), the hard-partying ways of Spencer's sister Stephanie and Conrad's replacement, 'Laguna Beach' frenemy Kristin Cavallari.

"When Kristin was in Miami for the Super Bowl, there was definitely some late nights for her and some speculation that she might be partying a little too hard," 'Hills' executive producer Liz Gateley says of rumors that Cavallari has a drug problem. "So we're definitely going to cover that part of Kristin. We're pretty much covering everything you've read [in the tabloids]."

But as the show bids adieu to Les Deux and other Hollywood hangouts the cast has frequented through the seasons, Conrad, whose post-'Laguna Beach' life sparked the spin-off, isn't likely to play a big part in 'The Hills' wrap-up.

DiVello tells EW.com that fans can expect a "satisfying conclusion" to the reality drama, but a guest appearance by Conrad is likely the most screen time she'll get before the series finale.

"I always joked it would be nice to see Lauren get married," DiVello says.

That, apparently, will have to wait for another reality series.
