It’s time to return to the shore as MTV on Monday announced the upcoming revival of its most infamous reality show.
“Jersey Shore Family Vacation” is set to air on the network in 2018, reuniting original stars Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio,” Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
The only notable absence in MTV’s announcement of revival is Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, who was best known for her on-again, off-again romance with Ronnie.
MTV revealed its plans for the highly anticipated reunion during Monday’s premiere episode of its latest reality venture, “MTV Floribama Shore,” which follows eight roommates partying in Panama City.
“Jersey Shore” originally aired for six seasons from 2009 to 2012. It went on to spawn spin-offs around the world, including “Geordie Shore” in the U.K., “Gandia Shore” in Spain, “Warsaw Shore” in Poland and “Acapulco Shore” in Mexico.
495 Productions Founder & CEO SallyAnn Salsano serves as executive producer for “Jersey Shore.” Nina L. Diaz and Jackie French serve as executive producers for MTV.
