The cast of MTV’s hit show Jersey Shore is coming back in 2018 for another installment of the controversial series based here in Ocean County.
“We’re back b*tches,” said Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. Snooki will be returning to the Jersey Shore with fellow former housemates Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Devecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Mike “Tthe Situation” Sorrentino.
Jersey Shore was filmed in Seaside Heights between 2009 and 2012 and included six seasons including seasons filmed in Miami and Italy.
The controversial show had the shore community split on whether it was good or bad for tourism at the Jersey Shore. It also led local towns to pass so-called “Snooki Ordinances” which attempted to prohibit filming of the show and future offshoots in residential neighborhoods of towns such as Toms River.
JWOWW tweeted a photo of the original Jersey Shore cast on Monday with the following message, ““MAJOR #JerseyShore news during the premiere of @FloribamaShore tonight at 10/9c on @MTV! Get ready! #MTVFloribamaShore.”
Samantha Rae “Sammi” Giancola will not be coming back to the show according to reports.
