MTV Classic is bringing the ’90s back to your living room.
Starting Aug. 1, VH1 Classic will be rebranded as MTV Classic. The channel will bring back all your favorite 90’s and early 2000’s shows like “Beavis & Butthead,” “Daria,” “Pimp My Ride” and “Aeon Flux,” among others.
The launch of the new channel is tied to the 35th anniversary of the launch of MTV. They will kick things off with “MTV Hour One,” which will replay the original first hour of programming ever aired on MTV. The launch will also see a retrospective on “Total Request Live” entitled “The TRL Decade.”
Fans will also get to see episodes of the classic music series “Unplugged,” which featured performances by legendary artists like Bob Dylan, Nirvana, and Alice in Chains. Marathons of “Road Rules,” “Laguna Beach,” and “The Real World” will run on the weekends.
“From ‘Beavis & Butthead’ to ‘Laguna Beach,’ MTV’s programming vault is a music and pop culture goldmine with universal resonance,” MTV president Sean Atkins said. “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.”
