Jersey Shore Cast to Return for Second Season
Let the first pumping commence!
The cast of MTV's breakout hit, Jersey Shore, will film a second season. The network announced late Friday that they have ordered 12 episodes that will begin airing this summer.
Everyone's favorite guidos, including DJ Pauly D, Mike "The Situation," Snooki, J-Woww, Sammi, Ronnie and Vinny, have all signed on after weeks of salary negotiations.
"Our audience has fallen in love with Jersey Shore and its amazing cast who have really grown together as a family," Tony DiSanto, MTV’s president of programming, said in a statement. "That bond gives the show its heart, and we’re thrilled to reunite these friends."
Still, don't expect them to be back at their Jersey Shore beach house. According to a network statement, the group will "escape the cold northeast and find themselves in a new destination."
For those who missed out on the wildly successful reality show -- the No. 1 original cable series in January among viewers aged 12 to 34 -- MTV plans to air the complete first season before the Super Bowl kickoff on Feb. 7.
