MTV is electing Washington as the next location for "The Real World."

The cable network announced Wednesday that the 23rd season of the reality series would begin production in the nation's capital later this summer and premiere in 2010. Previous editions have focused on young strangers living together in front of cameras in such cities as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, London, Las Vegas, Paris and Austin, Texas.

Tony DiSanto, MTV's president of programming, said the network is "thrilled to be filming our classic franchise in the heart of where history is being made."

The Cancun-set 22nd season of "The Real World" premieres June 24.
