Adding a few more words in the caption, Mischa announced: "The secret's out... I'm joining the cast of The Hills.

It's unclear where Mischa will fall into the group, although The OC is said to have inspired 2004's Laguna Beach, which led to spin-off show The Hills launching in 2006.
Mischa rose to fame as Marissa Cooper in the 2003 series, and she could have been brought in to replace leading ladies Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari, who haven't signed up to the reboot but each for entirely different reasons.
As for Lauren, she's said to be in a different place in her life, but does wish her former co-stars 'the best'.
Last year, LC welcomed her son, Liam, with hubby of almost four years, William Tell, and it sounds like she has her hands full working on her fashion collection for Kohl's.
Kristin, on the other hand, is currently starring in her own reality show, Very Cavallari, meaning she reportedly has contractual obligations to E!.
The mum-of-three's TV show with husband and professional American football player, Jay Cutler, aired on the network earlier this year.
MTV's new docuseries hasn't yet got an air date, although filming for this The OC/The Hills mash-up is already said to have started in August.
