Hours after TMZ broke the news yesterday, MTV officially confirmed that not only will there be a 4th season of Jersey Shore, but it will be filming in Italy!
The MTV press release teases the ladies are excited “to trade gorillas for Italian stallions,” and that “this wacky and dysfunctional family is about to turn “the beautiful country” upside down.” More from the press release below –
“While the stateside ‘Jersey Shore’ locales have become iconic for our audience, it’s really the constantly evolving dynamic among the cast that keeps them coming back each season, and Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us,” said Chris Linn, executive vice president of programming and head of production for MTV. “The cast is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by. We can’t wait to see what erupts as a result.”
According to TMZ, MTV began working on getting visas for the entire cast and crew two months ago, and a source reveals the network has already lined up some of Vinny’s Italian relatives to host the Jersey gang for an authentic Guadagnino dinner.
Let’s hope the cast knows how to say ‘Gym, Tan, Laundry’ in Italiano! Filming is slated to begin in the spring.
