New York, NY, June 20, 2012 - Fan favorites Laguna Beach, The Hills and Daria return to MTV for six weeks as part of its new Retro Mania programming block, starting weekday mornings on Monday. June 25 from 9AM to 12PM ET/PT until August 3, 2012. MTV's Retro Mania includes the drama filled first two seasons of Laguna Beach, the entire fabulous series run of The Hills and a selection of MTV's favorite episodes across five seasons of the show that featured the coolest and wittiest anti-heroine ever, Daria.

MTV's Retro Mania Schedule:

June 25 - June 29

Laguna Beach (Seasons 1 and 2)

In 2004, MTV unleashed the first season of Laguna Beach, which featured gorgeous teens leading glamorous lives, and viewers discovered what lay beneath the surface of this seemingly perfect community. It was time to get to know the real Orange County. This series featured Lauren (aka LC), Lo, Christina, Kristin, Morgan, Trey, Talan and Stephen as this tight-knit clique grew up together while granting MTV an all-access pass inside their lives. These rich kids did anything they wanted all day long but their lives weren't perfect, and money definitely didn't buy everything. From spring break to prom to graduation, the Laguna Beach posse took us along for the ride of their lives and showed us the real-life drama that unfolded during their pivotal senior years in high school.

July 2 - July 27

The Hills (Seasons 1 - 6)

When season 2 of Laguna Beach ended, MTV followed LC to The Hills of L.A. to watch her as she embarked upon a new fabulous journey. It's one thing to be young and beautiful in Laguna Beach. It's another to be young and beautiful in the city that values it most. The Hills followed Lauren ("LC" from Laguna Beach) as she made the move from her O.C. digs to Los Angeles, where she chased her dreams of entering the fashion business while balancing a full course load at college and a full social calendar. Through Lauren we met her new roommate, Heidi, who aspired to make the LA nightlife her whole life, Audrina, a receptionist who moved to LA in hopes of becoming a model/actress, and Whitney, Lauren's fashionable co-worker and confidante at Teen Vogue. These four girls took full advantage of being in the "in" crowd of LA, hopping from club, to party, to hot restaurant as they lived the Hollywood lifestyle to the fullest.

July 30 - August 3

Daria (Selection of MTV's favorite episodes from the series)

In 1997, Daria spun off of Beavis and Butt-head into her own self-titled series, a biting social satire about popular culture's obsession with fashion and conformity, and fans quickly embraced the teen who was willing to take on the world. Daria never wanted to be "popular." In fact, she despised anything that even remotely pandered to the masses. However, for five seasons, Daria's sharp intellect -- and even sharper tongue -- dissected anyone she deemed superficial - which was basically just about everyone. With her trademark big, round glasses, combat boots, blazer and pleated skirt, Daria unintentionally became a cultural icon and the star of MTV's wildly popular animated series.
