The MTV reality show that catapulted Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge (Sorority Row) and Heidi Montag to fame has finally been cancelled. The upcoming sixth season will be its last. The reality show (or scripted, depending on what you believe!) followed the lives of a group of friends as they tried to find success in Los Angeles. It debuted in 2006 and became a worldwide hit.
The show, which primarily focused on Conrad’s life and her aspiration to become a fashion designer, has made her into a mini mogul of sorts. Conrad has written three teen books for Harper Collins and the story has been optioned for a movie.

Creator Adam DiVello tells Entertainment Weekly, “I think we’ve told the story of struggle and of finding yourself in L.A. A lot of these kids have found themselves and have certainly embarked on different careers and different paths.”
The future of The Hills was thrown into doubt when Conrad quit last year and replaced by her foe Kristin Cavallari. The show’s demise was also cancelled due to Audrina Patridge’s announcement last summer that she would also be leaving to pursue a real acting career. The Hills also made the plastic surgery-addicted Heidi Montag and her controversial boyfriend Spencer Pratt, famous.
