In the April edition of Seventeen magazine, Lauren Conrad says that season 5 of The Hills will be her last. So, just so everyone is clear, we still have the season 4 “bonus episodes” that begin this spring and THEN there will be season 5.

And, speaking as a fan, can I just say hallelujah?! Now, I love this show. I loved Laguna Beach, too. I even got to spend time behind-the-scenes of The Hills last summer, before season 4 kicked off (when Lauren told me, “Every season, I think it’s the last. Right now, I think this is the last season”). But this thing has to wrap up! Really, there’s just no more story to tell. Last season became a drag, especially since it felt like Lauren was MIA toward the end. It seems like it’s getting harder for them to film around her increasingly busy schedule. Like Lost (I can’t believe I’m comparing these two shows), The Hills will definitely benefit from an announced end date. But that’s just me. What do you think, PopWatchers?
