Norman was The Real World's first openly gay cast member, and the Homecoming series sees him open up on what he went through on the show and after it, including a heartbreaking segment on how he was abandoned by many of his friends.

Without giving too much away, all these years later and in today's social climate, not everyone is seeing eye-to-eye. Julie, Heather and Andre are also back - and yes, Andre's hair is still magnificent - but Eric Nies is only appearing via video link, for reasons that will become clear during the series.
