Attention Jersey Shore Fans: can’t get enough big hair, catfights, and Guidos? You’re in luck. MTV has renewed the breakout hit Jersey Shore for a second season, but the too-tanned cast is heading away from Jersey to a new location. Want to know what’s coming up? Keep reading to find out…
MTV’s director of programming Tony DiSanto announced on Friday that 12 new episodes of the drama-filled show will air this summer, but the cast is getting out of the frigid New Jersey and heading to a much warmer destination. MTV has remained mum on the new location of the second season of Jersey Shore but cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi says, “I can’t wait. I’m really happy they brought us back.”
There has been speculation as to whether the original cast–which includesÂ Pauly D, Snooki, J-Woww, Sammi, Ronnie, Vinny, and yes, Mike “The Situation”–would return in season two or whether MTV would cast a new group of strangers in typical Real World style. MTV has announced that the original cast’s contracts have been renewed and the housemates are thrilled to return. Snooki says, “I honestly didn’t know if we were going to do the second season. I wasn’t sure but I’m really excited.”
So what can fans expect in the new season of Jersey Shore? In addition to the new location, there’s sure to be plenty of new drama. There’s also speculation about a new roommate being added to the mix to replace Angelina who left early on in the first season. And what else is coming up? According to Snooki, fans can expect to see “more pickle eating, more drunken fights … just crazy stuff.” Wow. We certainly can’t wait for that.
