Fist pumping time!

The entire cast of MTV's Jersey Shore is returning for a third season, UsMagazine.com has confirmed.

"MTV is pleased that the Jersey Shore cast are returning to Seaside Heights to continue production on Season 3," an MTV rep tells Us. "Not only have they become a part of the MTV family, but fans worldwide have fallen in love with them."

Earlier this week, word spread that the cast was on strike, but Jenni "JWOWW" Farley told Steppin' Out magazine: "That is by far a very untrue rumor. You have to laugh at crazy reports like that. Stories about strikes and things make us all laugh."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cast initially asked the network for $30,000 per episode -- a 200 percent raise. They shot the first season for $5,000 per episode, then negotiated a salary of $10,000 for the show's second season. See more crazy backstage demands.

Season 2 premieres July 29.
