I only saw this because someone posted about in on The Real World Reddit, but apparently the official Facebook of The Real World has been posting throwback clips for the past few months in between posting clips promoting the Real World Los Angeles Homecoming.
The exciting thing is that they've been posting clips from some of the "missing seasons" 5-11 (Miami, Boston, Seattle, Hawaii etc)!
Many people in the comments section are making it known that they want these seasons on Paramount Plus and that it is frustrating that they are promoting the Real World with clips of seasons that aren't officially available to stream. I was excited and then frustrated too by that fact.
BUT I think it is a VERY good sign that they are posting these clips. To me, it indicates that they have begun the process of digitizing these seasons for streaming (the clips are all high quality and I don't believe we have seen these specific clips digitized anywhere before this), as well as securing the original music rights or replacing any music they cannot license with original music (much like they have done with other seasons). It doesn't make sense that they would digitize these clips just for promotional use on Facebook. I think (and hope!) they are preparing all of these seasons for streaming on Paramount Plus, hopefully this year!
