MTV has given series orders to nine new shows, and is bringing back five for new seasons, including fresh installments of The Hills.
The Hills had been on the bubble since word that series star Lauren Conrad would be leaving the series.
MTV has ordered new seasons of Run's House, Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, Nitro Circus and America's Best Dance Crew.
Among the new series: The Alexa Chung Show, a live, one-hour daily variety series hosted by British TV personality Alexa Chung; and DJ and the Fro, an animated series that the network labels "Beavis and Butthead for the Millenial generation."
