MTV‘s popular show “The Hills” will air Monday April 4 at 10pm. The trailer premiered earlier this month.  

However, according to the show’s executive producer, Adam DiVello, the sneak peak was misleading. “What you see in the trailer is deceiving,” DiVello told E!.“You’ll see that in one of the first few episodes of the season, that when [Lauren and Heidi] wake up the next morning from that [reconciliation], things may not be as they had hoped.”

When asked if another season after this one will be recorded, he answered that it will as long as there are still stories to tell.

Two light spoilers from The Hollywood Gossip.com:

 Lauren Bosworth (Lo) will be a front runner of the season. Since Lauren Conrad is leaving the show are they preparing Lo to have her own series?
