The reunion show is part of MTV’s decision to add more reality television shows, which have helped boost ratings. While MTV has been on the decline, over the last nine months, the network’s growth has steadily increased among adults between 18 to 49-years-old, the longest period since 2000.
MTV has been teasing the show for the last few months, officially announcing the Jersey Shore reboot in November. But this time, the Jersey crew will be headed to Miami. On Family Vacation, we’ll witness the return of seven of the show’s cast members: Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
The original Jersey Shore ran on MTV from 2009 to 2012, and became MTV’s hit reality series that birthed a handful of similarly formatted shows across the world, including the U.K.’s Geordie Shore, Spain’s Gandia Shore, and Poland’s Warsaw Shore. Last year, MTV premiered the spin-off, Floribama Shore, which became the network’s best-rated new series premiere in more than three years; the show has since been renewed for a second season. The Jersey Shore Family Vacation’s exact setting for season two haven't been revealyed just yet.
