Kristin Cavallari is going back to the beginning. The Laguna Beach star is teaming up with her former co-star Stephen Colletti for a rewatch podcast about the hit MTV show. Keep reading below for more details on their new podcast, including when to expect season 1!
What to Expect from Kristin Cavallari & Stephen Colletti’s Podcast
The podcast will be called Back to the Beach with Kristin and Stephen, according to Kristin Cavallari’s Instagram announcement. Episodes for season 1 will be available for download in July – yes, as in this summer! The podcast network Dear Media is producing the show, and has ordered two seasons, or 40 episodes, according to Variety.
“So excited to finally be able to announce the podcast Back to the Beach with Kristin and Stephen!!!! We’re gonna go back and watch seasons 1 and 2 of Laguna Beach then break it all down for you guys! We’re knee deep in recording and have had SO MUCH FUN. Season 1 will air in July,” she captioned a throwback photo of her & Stephen.
Stephen echoed Kristin’s sentiments on social media, writing: “We’ve got a new chapter to this story. Much to discuss. 🎙🐻 @dearmediastudio @kristincavallari.” Kristin commented with a few emojis: “🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻.” Other commenters included former classmates and co-stars of Stephen’s from Laguna Beach. Lauren Conrad replied with: “Congrats👏🏼 👏🏼👏🏼,”; Talan Torriero said “LFG” and Jason Wahler wrote: “Ya buddy!! 🙌.”

“Eighteen years later and we’re finally ready to revisit Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. Stephen and I can’t wait to take listeners behind the scenes of what really went down, how it impacted us, and to relive those high-school days—the good, the bad and the ugly,” Kristin told Variety.
Her high school boyfriend Stephen hasn’t “seen the series since the show aired and look[s] forward to unpacking a treasure trove of anecdotes for our audience,” he shared to the media outlet. He’ll try to keep up with Kristin as she turns up the heat because apparently “some things never change.”
It’ll be interesting to know how they really felt about their high school lives being documented on MTV, because while Kristin’s revisited her Laguna Beach days a bit, neither have had the opportunity to sit down together and rewatch these pivotal moments unfold.
Of course, since both Kristin and Stephen are used to being in the public eye, they’ll definitely bring their personalities to the podcast. Since Laguna Beach, Kristin went on to do a brief stint on The Hills and then her own reality show on E! called Very Cavallari. Now, she continues to expand her Uncommon James brand, which includes skincare line Uncommon Beauty, and is focused on raising her 3 kids she shares with ex-husband Jay Cutler.
Post MTV, Stephen held a notable role as Chase Adams on the WB/CW series One Tree Hill from 2007-2012. He’s since collaborated with former OTH co-star James Lafferty on a show called Everyone Is Doing Great, available on Hulu. His podcast with Kristin comes after he reunited with more Laguna Beach castmates for Good to Vote, which Feeling the Vibe reported on in October 2020.
Since Stephen often keeps in touch with his classmates, it’s safe to say there will be plenty of high school reunions on the podcast with Kristin. Dear Media even confirmed that with Variety, saying that along with Laguna Beach alums, other celebrities and MTV insiders will be featured as well.
While you wait for July 2022, you can stream all 3 seasons of MTV’s Laguna Beach on Paramount+. Be sure you’re following both Kristin Cavallari and Stephen Colletti on Instagram for more updates on their podcast or everyday life.
