Cribs creator Nina L. Diaz said in a statement: “Cribs didn’t simply introduce the celebreality genre, it created a blueprint for how we engage on social media.” Watch the show’s promo video below.

Cribs first aired over 20 years ago and ran for 13 seasons. Over that time, it took viewers inside the homes of entertainment powerhouses such as Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, Destiny’s Chid and Pamela Anderson. It also took a tour of the Playboy mansion.

The US reboot follows an international edition of the show which launched in 2020. Guests such as Gemma Collins, Caitlyn Jenner and Stefflon Don revealed their homes in the series, which played on CBS’ international channels. The show was also revived as a Snapchat series in 2017.

The show’s relaunch joins a number of classic franchises that have been brought back to coincide with the arrival of Paramount+. MTV Unplugged, The Real World and Behind the Music have all been reimagined for the channel.

The latter series, which first ran from 1997 to 2014, will launch on July 29. The music documentary show first ran from 1997 to 2014. Several new episodes with “artist interviews, a creative refresh and reimagined visual style” will feature in the new series.

A number of guests have also been announced. So far Jennifer Lopez, LL Cool J, Ricky Martin and Huey Lewis are confirmed. More participants are still to be announced.
