According to The Hollywood Reporter, Audrina Patridge is leaving MTV’s The Hills after the hit reality show’s upcoming fifth season, which premieres March 30. Patridge has signed a new deal with Mark Burnett Productions for a series that, much like The Hills did for star Lauren Conrad, will follow her personal and professional life. “We are truly pleased to have the chance to work with Audrina,”Burnett told The Hollywood Reporter. “She has already proved her star quality, and wecan’t wait to show her fans worldwide the next stage of her lifeand career.”
Conrad also recently announced she would be leaving the series after the fifth season, prompting speculation that MTV will either cancel the show after the upcoming season or refocus it with sweeping cast changes. A sixth season of the show has not been announced.
