Reunited: The Real World Las Vegas is a seven-episode, 2007 spin-off miniseries of The Real World: Las Vegas that reunited the cast of the 2002 season of The Real World to live in the same Palms Hotel and Casino suite they filmed the original series in, five years after filming ended on The Real World: Las Vegas. Filming began April 9, 2007, and lasted until approximately April 26.[1][2][3] Trishelle Cannatella was the last cast member to agree to appear, as assurances were needed that filming would not conflict with her schedule.[4] The mini-series premiered May 30, 2007 and concluded on July 11, 2007.
