Fans instantly fell in love with Floribama Shore when it made its debut in 2017 on MTV. Over the years the series has never disappointed when it comes to the drama, no matter the location.

Season 4 wasn't filmed on the Gulf Coast because of COVID-19 and during the crew's first night together in Montana, Nilsa Prowant shocked her roommates by revealing her pregnancy with boyfriend Gus Gazda.

Even though everyone was happy for a fresh start when filming moved to sunny Arizona, production had to shut down indefinitely after a crew member tested positive for COVID-19.

Where was Season 5 of 'Floribama Shore' filmed?

Season 5 of Floribama Shore was filmed in Athens, Ga. According to MTV's website, audiences can expect to see the roommates "prepare for life-changing events and try to repair fractured friendships."

During the premiere episode, the cast quickly reacquainted with one another as they check out their new Georgia digs.

Last season, Aimee Hall bought her cousin, Ally, into their Montanabama Shore" house, and Candace Rice had her friend Bethaney come and visit. This season, the cast will be welcoming some furry friends into the home.

Aimee's pig Princess Piggy Tutor May Massengill Hall, or PGP for short, and Nilsa's dog Ravioli will be joining. We're sure it's only a matter of time before their pets are running the entire house.

One 'Floribama Shore' roommate almost didn’t come back for Season 5.

On May 20, Nilsa gave birth to her son Gray Allen Gazda, but she admitted she was hesitant to film Season 5 of Floribama Shore while pregnant.

In an interview with HollywoodLife, the MTV personality shared she initially wasn't going to appear in the new season.

"I wasn't going to go. I was like..this is too much. I'm too pregnant for this," she explained. "There were too many unresolved issues between certain people, and I don't want to spend my last couple of months pregnant in a hostile environment."
