MTV Books July Return for ‘Jersey Shore’

Plus, it turns out season two will shoot in both Miami and on the Shore. Good times!

Let the GTL’ing begin: The new season of "Jersey Shore" will premiere Thursday, July 29, the network announced Thursday.

Using its own MTV News website to "break" the story, MTV confirmed what’s been known for months– namely, that season two will shoot in Miami. But it turns out the network plans to return to the Shore for the second half of the season.

So it’s like "Jersey Shore: Road Trip!" meets "Jersey Shore: Back to the Beach." It’s two, two, two "Jersey Shores" in one.

MTV also cleared up what that casting website that went live is all about. Apparently the network wants "the option of adding new cast members" to season two. Maybe they’re worried Snooki or Pauly D will get arrested or demand more money during the production.

"It’s like a big family reunion after all this time," Tony DiSanto, MTV’s president of programming, told the website his company owns. "We couldn’t be more excited that the whole group is back together in Miami and that they’ll be going back to Jersey when the sun heats up."
