College Hill Celebrity Edition : Chaos or Clutch?

College Hill Celebrity Edition : Chaos or Clutch?

Reboots, reboots everywhere, but are they worth the watch? We’ll let you be the judge of that. 

What do Stacy Dash and Big Freedia have in common? Well, this summer, they'll be at Texas Southern University, sharing the small screen as BET+ brings back the early 2000s reality tv show, College Hill

Now, if you’re an older millennial, you may remember the original series which debuted in 2004. Each season, the show would feature a group of undergraduate students at a particular historically Black college or university (HBCU). The series was originally created to bring awareness to HBCUs and the value they add to higher education. Well, College Hill was successful at that. Over the course of its 6 season run, the show brought in record ratings, hitting its peak in seasons 3 and 4.

As the reboot premier gets closer and closer, I can’t help but ask out loud, “Why this, why now?”  Series Creator, Tracey Edmonds, lauds this occasion as an opportunity to highlight Texas Southern University and all it has to offer. She said the following in a statement,  

“I am so elated to partner with Texas Southern University and be able to bring back this cherished franchise with an exciting new twist that I am sure will entertain and inspire new and old fans across the board."

Take a look at the cast for College Hill: Celebrity Edition. 

  • NENE LEAKES,
  • RAY J
  • LAMAR ODOM
  • BIG FREEDIA
  • STACEY DASH
  • DREAMDOLL
  • INDIA LOVE
  • SLIM THUG 

With a cast as dynamic and  this, it’s safe to say that this season is going to be far from boring. These big personalities will not only be in class together but living together, too. Whether this will be a hit or a flop is still unknown but I’ll definitely be tuning in to report back. Throw on your favorite pair of HBCU Leggings and check out College Hill: Celebrity Edition on BET+ so you can join the conversation.
