It's Official — Season 5 of 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation' Is on Its Way
If quarantine didn't stop the cast of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, then what's a little cold weather? For the second half of Season 4, the Shore bubble has set up shop in the Poconos, which is the group's first trip to the area. While everyone is vacationing at the Woodloch Resort located in Hawley, Pa., they will be celebrating several accomplishments. Jenni "JWoww" Farley tells everyone as soon as she arrives that she and her boyfriend, Zack Carpinello, formerly known as 24, are engaged.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Lauren Sorrentino are also sharing their pregnancy journey. Plus, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi even makes a return to the series. The cast has been enjoying their time together in the snow and has been keeping themselves occupied with all sorts of activities. Everyone gets into snow clothes and goes snow tubing, minus Deena Cortese and Lauren, of course.
Deena's son and JWoww's kids have a play date, and Jenni's pro wrestler fiancé body-slams Vinny in a wrestling ring. Fans also see Pauly D, Mike, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Zack put on a wrestling event, with the help of Uncle Nino as the announcer and Deena's husband, Chris Buckner, as the referee. Fans have loved the second half of Season 4, but what can they expect for a fifth season?
Will there be a Season 5 of 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation'?
Fans will be happy to know that there will be more Jerzdays coming! Snooki initially confirmed that not only will there be a Season 5 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, but the cast has already started filming. While fans have been anxiously awaiting the remaining episodes involving Nicole, they no longer have to fear that those episodes will be the end of her time on the series.
In a recent episode of her podcast, It's Happening With Snooki & Joey, the MTV personality confirmed Season 5 and teased that she will continue filming alongside her roomies. She shared, "I just filmed — we're filming for next season. I just did a scene with Deener, and we had a Meatball Day. We were drinking wine and having cheese, and we ended up getting drunk on her kids' swing set."
Snooki also promised to her listeners that Season 5 wouldn't be full of girl drama. She said, "The show's coming back, you guys. There's no more drama anymore. Well, there's drama here and there, but it's not going to take over the show. Because I've seen all the fan comments that the show's not the same anymore, that it's not fun anymore, that it's all drama. It's happening. The party's back, and it's going to be a good-ass time."
On Sept. 2, the day of the Season 4 finale, MTV confirmed the news that Season 5 is coming, with Snooki back as a main cast member. The exact release date has not yet been announced, but considering that Snooki said that she'd just been filming in early July of 2021, we're hopeful we'll see a winter premiere date for either late 2021 or early 2022.
It looks like everyone is on board to return, except Ronnie. He will not be joining the cast for the new season because he's taking time away from the series to focus on his mental health.
