Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio and Jenni "JWoww" Farley just wrapped Jersey Shore's third season, but there's much more wild reality TV in store for the trio.

The breakout stars of MTV's summer smash reality hit have inked a franchise deal with the network for untitled spinoff projects to air in 2012.

Set to begin production later this year, the ladies' spinoff will follow Polizzi and Farley as they navigate their own 12-episode series about life away from the shore. "The locale may be different, but the friendship is sure to remain the same," MTV hints in a statement. Delvecchio's 12-episode series will chronicle his life as an in-demand Rhode Island disc jockey.

"The Jersey Shore cast is at the center of the show's ongoing success and Nicole, Pauly D and Jenni have become household names as a result of their unique, sometimes outrageous and often hilarious personalities," MTV's Executive Vice President of Programming and Head of Production Chris Linn tells UsMagazine.com.

"We're excited to put the spotlight on their lives away from the shore as they pursue their individual passions, careers and relationships," Linn continues. "Both series are fun, fresh ways for us to evolve what is an already successful brand for us."
