Last December, MTV brought back Newport Harbor for a special feature called Home for the Holidays, which ended its four-episode run earlier this month.  At present, fans are treated with reruns of the much awaited reunion that featured the Chrissy Schwartz, Clay Adler, Allie Stockton, Grant Newman, Chase Cornwell, Taylor Geiney and Sasha Dunlap as they return home to celebrate the holidays, and deal with new rivalries, love triangles and more family drama, but for how long?

Though it hasn't been confirmed, several sources are strongly suggesting that there's another season of Newport Harbor is being strongly considered and is expected to air some time in August.

While getting another run of Newport Beach would certainly make the show's avid supporters happy, the news might not be music to the ears of those who consider the show lacking of cattiness, bitchiness, rivalries, and dramatic moments that its predecessor, Laguna Beach, is famous for.

For those who are not familiar, Newport Beach serves as the replacement show of MTV's Laguna Beach, which aired three seasons from 2004 to 2006.  Similar to its predecessor, it's a reality series that documents the lives of several teenagers in a traditional narrative approach.

The show made its debut in August, introducing a group of young people living in Newport Beach, California and attending Newport Harbor High School.  The first season followed their adventures as they make friends, spark new attractions, suffer heartbreaks and compete for the affection of the same love, while dealing with typical high school issues.  It was the most watched program in its time period among viewers ages 12-34 across all of cable, with over 37 million total viewers during the entire 8-episode run.

Given the numbers, it wouldn't be that surprising if MTV picks up Newport Harbor for yet another season.
