Five years after Jersey Shore signed off the air, MTV is reviving the show with its original cast.
On Monday, the network formally green-lit Jersey Shore Family Vacation for a 2018 premiere. Of the show’s principal cast members, only Samantha “Sweetheart” Giancola will be absent from the revival. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, and Vinny Guadagnino are all confirmed for the new series. Deena Nicole Cortese, who appeared in seasons three-six, will also be returning.
Earlier this year, several Jersey Shore cast members reunited for an E! docu-series dubbed, Reunion Road Trip: Return to the Jersey Shore (watch below). MTV has also developed a Jersey Shore spin-off series called Floribama Shore, which received its premiere on Monday night.
