'Jersey Shore' cast to reunite for MTV revival series
The Viacom-owned cable channel announced Monday that the series’ original cast members — including Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio,” Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino — will reunite for “Jersey Shore Family Vacation,” a new series set to premiere in 2018. The announcement came during the Monday-night premiere of new reality series “Floribama Shore,” which follows a format similar to the original.
The original “Jersey Shore” ran for six seasons on MTV from 2009 to 2012. Created by SallyAnn Salsano, the series followed the alcohol-fueled adventures of a group of friends sharing a New Jersey beach house. the series spawned spinoffs “Geordie Shore” in the U.K., “Gandia Shore” in Spain, “Warsaw Shore” in Poland, and “Acapulco Shore” in Mexico.
Salsano’s 495 Productions will produce the new series, with Salsano again serving as executive producer. Nina L. Diaz and Jackie French will exec produce for MTV.
Farley teased the announcement of the revival series earlier in the day on Monday, posting a photo of the original cast on Instagram with the caption, “MAJOR #JerseyShore news during the premiere of @FloribamaShore tonight at 10/9c on @MTV! Get ready! #MTVFloribamaShore.”
