It has been six long years but it’s finally time to hit the gym, get a tan, and do some laundry because Jersey Shore is back!
You heard right, it’s T-shirt time Guidos and Guidettes! The Jersey Shore cast is headed to Miami for MTV’s reboot of the beloved ratings hit that first aired back in 2009.
The new show is called Jersey Shore: Family Vacation and all the original cast members will be returning with the exception of Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. Giancola has not commented on why she has chosen to sit this one out but if I had to guess, it probably has a lot to do with the fact that her gorilla juicehead ex-boyfriend, Ronnie Ortiz-Margo, is going to be there.
In case you were afraid that the cast we all know and love has grown up and matured, have no fear! In a teaser trailer released on Wednesday we see that the gang is just as crazy as ever. There seems to be no shortage of booze, fist pumping, or bromances (C’mon who isn’t practically jumping up and down with excitement at the prospect of seeing Pauly D and Vinny back together again?)
And if all of that isn’t enough then here is something that is sure to get any OG Jersey Shore fan to tune in for the new season: Angelina is back. What’s a family vacation without the most hated family member of all? Angelina Pivarnick, who was on the very first season of Jersey Shore, but left the series halfway through the second season, was indisputably the biggest drama starter of the crew. So it is no surprise that when Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino opens the door to see Angelina (with real suitcases and not trash bags this time around) in a clip shared on the MTV show’s Instagram account, he responds with “Oh S–t! Who sent you?”
If you don’t want to miss even a second of all the wildness that is sure to ensue at South Beach then be sure to tune into Jersey Shore: Family Vacation which premieres on MTV Thursday, April 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
