If you thought the previous season of "The Real Word" was filled with over-the-top drama thanks to the surprise addition of the cast members' exes as roommates, just wait until you hear what the show has up its sleeve for next season, which will premiere on MTV Tuesday, Dec. 16.

"The Real World: Skeletons" will feature seven strangers living in Chicago. But soon thereafter, they'll have to welcome in some unwanted guests: people from their past. They're enemies. They're skeletons.

It might be a housemate's ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, an estranged family member or it may be MORE THAN ONE person from a housemate's past. A group of "skeletons" will move in throughout the season, and each person in the group will have ties to one of the season's original roommates.

Creator and executive producer Jon Murray reportedly said, "No one wants their worst enemy or embarrassing past moving in with them, but by facing your past, you actually grow. And that growth, however painful it may be, is what makes this season of ‘Real World’ so watchable."

It'll be watchable, alright. We're expecting drama, on top of drama, on top of drama -- and we can't wait!
