Since teasing “Siesta Key” during the 2017 Movie & TV Awards, MTV has been decidedly quiet about its new series.
That finally changed Tuesday.
In addition to sharing a synopsis, MTV revealed the first official cast photo. It also shared details on the key cast members.
“MTV takes viewers on the ultimate summer vacation with the new docuseries ‘Siesta Key,'” says MTV of the series, which premieres at 10PM ET/PT on July 31. “The premiere season of 10, one-hour episodes follows a group of young adults considered the “Siesta Key elite” as they confront issues of love, heartbreak, betrayal, race, class, and looming adulthood, all while trying to enjoy the most epic summer of their lives.”
“Siesta Key,” which is from the producers of one-time MTV flagship “Laguna Beach,” is shot cinematically — without breaks for the typical reality show confessionals.
Meet the cast:

Garrett is Kelsey’s boyfriend, a muscular personal trainer with a modest upbringing. When Kelsey starts to hang with Alex and his crew, their solid relationship starts to show its cracks. While Kelsey and Garrett look like the picture-perfect couple, people and hearts can change after a summer together.
Kelsey is the new girl in Siesta Key. After her mom’s heath took a turn, this former international model has given up the catwalk to move home to care for her mother. Because of her former globe-trotting career, she missed all of the fun of high school, and this summer she plans to make up for lost time.
Chloe knows everything about everyone, especially when it comes to Alex. She’s most likely to be your best friend, and your worst enemy. One thing is for sure, you don’t want to get on her bad side.
Alex is the King of Siesta Key. He’s known for his over the top parties and playboy lifestyle. But now that Alex has graduated college, he has to focus less on the pleasures of careless youth and more on his uncertain future.
Juliette is back home from college and is wasting no time heating things up. Last summer she had a fling with Alex that didn’t end so well. Will they reignite their flame? Or will the summer breeze blow it out for good?
Brandon is one of Alex’s tightest boys, and most laid back of the bunch. Like Alex, he’s a total heartthrob, and together they will drive the girls on Siesta crazy.
Madisson and Alex are high school sweethearts who haven’t totally moved on from each other. Having just graduated with an engineering degree, Madisson is looking to move on and start fresh. Will she let Alex go, or will she succumb to old habits?
