Ronnie most likely won't be coming back for Season 5 of 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.'

At this time, MTV has not announced any intention to fire Ronnie. He isn't filming for the forthcoming season because he has decided to take some time away. Per People, Ronnie took to social media to announce that audiences wouldn't see his face for a while. On his Instagram story, he shared, "After talking to the team at MTV, we have mutually agreed that I will step away from the show while I seek medical treatment for mental health issues that I've ignored for too long."

He went on to say, "My No. 1 goal now is facing my struggles head-on. This process will be difficult. But my No. 1 priority is to get healthy and be the best man and the best father I can for my daughter."

The news about Ronnie taking a break from Jersey Shore: Family Vacation came not too long after he was arrested. In April, Ronnie was arrested in Los Angeles for alleged domestic violence.

However, the details around the case were not revealed. Ronnie was later released on $100,000 bail after being in custody for only a couple of hours. At the time, Ronnie made it publicly known that he was seeking mental health treatment and he wouldn't be charged in the domestic violence case. He only had to appear in court for violating his probation, which stems from a separate domestic violence case involving his ex Jenn Harley.

Watch Jersey Shore: Family Vacation on Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on MTV.
