The Real World Homecoming: New York is streaming now after premiering Thursday, March 4 on Paramount Plus.

Stop being polite, start getting real and watch The Real World Homecoming: New York online. The cast reunion show is streaming now, with the launch of Paramount Plus, the new streaming service from ViacomCBS (home to MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, the Paramount movie studio and more). 

The Real World Homecoming: New York reunites the seven strangers picked to live in a house, work together and have their lives taped in The Real World season 1 in 1992. Now, almost three decades later, they return to the Soho loft where it all began.

Paramount Plus says The Real World Homecoming will "revisit the shocking moments and explosive issues that transpired during the historic season and discuss how they parallel in today’s social climate." 

All seven cast members will appear: Becky Blasband, Andre Comeau, Heather B. Gardner, Julie Gentry, Norm Korpi, Eric Nies and Kevin Powell. 

However, Nies only shows up via video chat and did not live in the house with his former castmates. He told The New York Times that his separation was "definitely not by my choice, but I accepted the outcome — more will be revealed in the future."
