The official release date, cast, and even a trailer have been revealed. In the reboot, multiple personalities will live side by side in the reboot and compete in a number of challenges.
It’s hard to fathom, but the show will return to VH1 with eight celebrities after 16 years. Let’s take a look at what we know so far about the upcoming series.

- August Alsina
- Tamar Braxton
- Frankie Muniz
- Kim Coles
- CJ Perry
- Manny MUA
Perry revealed, “It just came. My manager reached out to me. I was still with WWE. He reached out, and he was like, The Surreal Life wants you. And I’m like, ‘What?’ I thought I was getting ribbed.
Because I’m like, I’m, out of all the celebrities, even from WWE, why me? And they’re like, ‘No, he, they want you.’ And he also manages Eva [Marie]. And so, I was like, ‘Whoa. They wouldn’t want her.’ And he was like, ‘Specifically, they’re asking for you.’”
Perry also talked about the difference between The Surreal Life & Total Divas. She explained, “So I think because of Total Divas, and we understand that things get beaded out. And I think at this point, it’s no real secret about that stuff. With The Kardashians, and Selling Sunsets, everyone knows there are heels, there are baby faces.
And however, they definitely tried to not do that. And so, that’s what we were dealing with in Surreal Life. They were trying to pretend it’s all real.”
