A new batch of stars are headed for The Surreal Life!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Kim Zolciak, singer Macy Gray, and actor Chet Hanks, the son of Tom Hanks, are set to join the upcoming season of the MTV reality show.

The cast also includes Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke, Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir, model Josie Canseco — the daughter of former MLB player and The Surreal Life season 5 alum José Canseco — and rapper O.T. Genasis. Production is expected to start later this month.

In previous seasons, the reality show — which aired on VH1 at the time — has brought together an eclectic group of celebrities under one roof, sending them on wild adventures together that "pushes them to reveal different sides of themselves in surprising" ways, according to a press release.

Previous Surreal Life casts — which have been tasked with everything from amusement park visits and surf school to filming talk-show pilots — have included actors Gabrielle Carteris, Corey Feldman and Dave Coulier, rapper MC Hammer and sitcom child star Emmanuel Lewis.

Last season's lineup featured former NBA player Dennis Rodman, singer August Alsina, former WWE star CJ Perry, actor Frankie Muniz, actress/comedian Kim Coles, makeup guru Manny MUA, adult film star Stormy Daniels and singer Tamar Braxton.

For Zolciak, in particular, The Surreal Life may prove a good diversion. Over the last several months, she and husband Kroy Biermann have been involved in an on-again, off-again divorce and appear to have clashed over financial strain in their marriage.

Their Georgia mansion went into foreclosure in February, though the couple stopped the property from going up for public auction. The couple appears to be on mend, however. Despite Biermann's second divorce filing at the end of August, Zolciak, 45, told her fans she’s working on their relationship.

In a now-expired Instagram Story previously reported by Page Six, Zolciak shared: “I’m living here not going anywhere!” while showing off her shoe closet at their shared Georgia home. “Been working on our marriage and have been living together as husband and wife. The lies daily are too much.”

The Surreal Life is executive produced by Adam Gonzalez for A Game Productions with MTV Entertainment Studios and by Samuel Duque for Telecolombia International Studios. For MTV Entertainment Studios, executive producers include Tolani Holmes, Elena Diaz and Camilo Valdes with Matthew Parillo as executive in charge of production.
