Get ready for Thursdays to turn into “Jerzdays,” because the Shore crew is coming back.
MTV has set a Feb. 27 return date for the second half of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” Season 3, TheWrap has learned exclusively.
The new episodes will feature the house-mates traveling across the country, from New Jersey to New Orleans and Las Vegas, for more gym, tanning and laundry-related shenanigans only they can pull off.
In the new episodes, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino reunites with his house mates after his release from prison, and Angelina prepares for her wedding. See the shore crew clinking wine glasses, hugging “The Situation,” squealing and yelling into megaphones in the TheWrap’s exclusive clip above.
The series’ return comes at a time of ratings prosperity for MTV: The cable network’s “Catfish” series is currently +19% among adults in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic (.82 rating) versus its prior season’s average (.69 rating), while “Floribama Shore” hit its highest Live +3 Day rating in the key demo (1.26 rating) in more than a year and a half with its Jan. 9 episode. The most recent season premiere of “Siesta Key” rose 5% in the 18-49 range, with a .79 rating versus last season’s launch, which put up a .74 rating.
“Jersey Shore Family Vacation” features housemates Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio,” Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Angelina Pivarnick, Deena Nicole Cortese, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Sorrentino.
The series is a continuation of the original “Jersey Shore,” which first premiered in 2009 on MTV. It returned in 2018 to high ratings.
