After the success of Laguna Beach, MTV developed The Hills, a spin-off series documenting the lives of Conrad and her friends (Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, and Whitney Port) in Los Angeles, California. During production of the first season, the pair were not on speaking terms, which was briefly mentioned on the series as a fight caused by their mutual friend Jen Bunney that lasted nearly two years. After the two reconciled, Bosworth became a supporting cast member during the The Hills' second season, first appearing on the series on March 12, 2007.[3][4][5]

The third season premiered on August 13, 2007.

The fourth season premiered on August 18, 2008, during which Conrad and Bosworth adopted a dog that they named Chloe. The season also saw Bosworth reveal more of her personal life, also allowing cameras into her workplace.[6] The first half of the fifth season premiered on April 6, 2009. Conrad made her final appearance on the series on May 31, 2009, at Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding. The second half of the season premiered on September 29, 2009, with former Laguna Beach castmate Kristin Cavallari hired as Conrad's replacement.

The sixth and final season premiered on April 27, 2010. Despite rumors of not returning after the fifth season, Bosworth became a main cast member for the season. She was shown to be dealing with workplace drama, as well as moving in with her boyfriend, Scott. The series concluded on July 13, 2010.
