MTV confirms new season of ‘Jersey Shore’

BTW

After months of speculation that a reunion might be in the works, MTV has announced that Jersey Shore will soon be returning to the network.

A tweet from the company late Monday included a short trailer and the promise that the cast of the iconic reality series “is headed out on a family vacation,” with new episodes airing in 2018.

There’s no word yet on where the vacation might be to, but an Italian flag in a tweet from Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino could be a clue.

Us Weekly reports that nearly the entire original cast will be returning for the revival: Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Sorrentino are all confirmed to be involved. The only castmate missing is Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola.

The original Jersey Shore ran for six seasons on MTV and ranked as one of the cable network’s highest-rated series of all time. The final episode aired in December 2012.
