‘The Hills’ receives season pickup

MTV also renews 'The City'

Despite falling ratings, MTV’s “The Hills” will return for a sixth season.

Skein was once a must see among the 18-34 demo but show has lost a bit of its luster with the departure of Lauren Conrad, who began the franchise when she starred in “Laguna Beach.” Conrad left “The Hills” after a handful of episode from season five.

Second half of season five began in September with 2.1 million viewers, a steep decline from previous season premieres. Kristin Cavallari has taken Conrad’s place as the skein’s main protagonist.

Spinoff “The City,” starring “Hills” alum Whitney Port, has also been greenlit for a second season.
