They're putting the "M" back in MTV!
MTV may be a tad different today than it was when it debuted nearly 35 years ago… but that's all about to change thanks to MTV Classic!
While shows like The Challenge, Are You The One?, and Scream are prime examples of the current state of programming for the network, a rebranding for sister channel VH1 Classic could be the key to reliving your '90s nostalgia.

That's because cultural icons like Daria, Aeon Flux, MTV Unplugged, and even TRL are about to be making their way back to primetime!
President of MTV Sean Atkins shared the big news on Thursday teasing an August 1 release, saying:
"From Beavis & Butt-head to Laguna Beach, MTV's programming vault is a music and pop culture goldmine with universal resonance. MTV Classic gives audiences a modern and artful home for classic MTV programming and — alongside MTV, MTV2, MTV Live and mtvU — rounds out a diverse portfolio with music and youth culture at its core."
But it's not just reality TV that's making a comeback… the network plans on premiering with a bang by replaying the very first hour of music MTV ever scheduled way back in 1981 exactly as it aired!
Plus, we're hearing MTV Classic will dedicate its weekends to full marathons of old seasons of Real World and other forgotten franchises — so fingers crossed for more Clone High and The '70s House with Natasha Leggero! LOLz!!
What are U most excited to see back on your TV screens??
