After the widely reported contract hold outs, all of the Jersey Shore cast members have signed on to return for season 4!
TMZ reports Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and the rest of the gang will be heading to Italy in May to start filming. While TMZ doesn’t state the exact amount the cast will be earning, it does add that everyone is “very pleased with the outcome.”
Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the cast got a HUGE raise! Just how huge? Let’s try over $100,000 per episode! Yes, you read that right. Sources close to the negotiations tell EW members of the “core group” are now pulling down at least $100,000 per episode.
With each season producing an average of 14 episodes, this means a number of the Jersey Shore cast will earn over $1 million each for season 4
to simply drink, party & fight. Wowzers! The cast reportedly earned $30,000 per episode for season 3.
And finally, MTV announced last week it has picked up two Jersey Shore spin-off shows. The first show will focus on DJ Pauly D and his life on the road as “one of the country’s most in-demand DJs.” While the second show will follow BFFs Snooki and JWoww, chronicling their experiences as roommates after their lives on “Jersey Shore.”
MTV has ordered 12 episodes of each spin-off, and plans to debut both shows sometime in 2012.
