Following the ratings smash of the current and third season of Jersey Shore, a new report now states MTV is working on a 4th season with the same cast.
This news is a bit of a surprise as the network had intended for the 3rd season to the the final one with the original cast, while finding a new cast to keep the franchise going.
According to the HollywoodLife, MTV has been in contact with the current cast members, telling them to keep May 2011 open for filming of the show’s fourth season!
A source close to the negotiations also tells the site that the current contracts of the cast gives MTV the right to bring them back for a fourth season. As of the moment, MTV has yet to choose a destination for filming.
This move by MTV makes a lot of sense as the ratings for this season have been nothing short of phenomenal. The premiere was seen by an astonishing 8.4 million viewers, making it MTV’s most-watched series telecast of all time. Things have yet to slow down as the second episode was seen by 8.6 million viewers.
TMZ reports MTV has ordered the two BFFs to film a pilot this weekend, meaning MTV has yet to officially pick up the show, and will only greenlight it if they like the pilot.
