MTV today announced that the pop-culture phenomenon Jersey Shore Family Vacation has been renewed following a successful season-four run. The upcoming fifth season marks the official return of reality TV icon Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi to the cast.
The series continues to be a powerhouse for MTV, owning the #1 spot across key demos in its time period and pacing a whopping +9% on L+3 share from last season, further cementing MTV as the dominant network Thursday nights.
On tonight’s highly anticipated finale episode, Snooki’s left to clean up the mess made by Dren as the trip comes to an end. Meanwhile, Mike plans a second gender reveal even though everyone knows he’s having a boy. But, the real surprise is what happens when Angelina “accidentally” shoots off a gender reveal powder cannon in her husband’s face.
Jerzdays continue this fall with the highly-anticipated return of Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D and Vinny and MTV Floribama Shore kicking off September 16th at 8PM ET/PT with back-to-back premieres.
Jersey Shore, which first premiered in 2009 and returned in 2018 to record ratings, is an MTV worldwide phenomenon that features such hits as MTV Floribama Shore, Geordie Shore (UK), Gandia Shore (Spain), Warsaw Shore (Poland), and Acapulco Shore (Mexico).
