This time around, the cast and crew will be back in Seaside Heights, N.J., where the show was filmed earlier this year. The season follows the fourth outing, which had them living together in Florence, Italy.
“Jersey Shore” is produced by SallyAnn Salsano, and stars Mike (The Situation) Sorrentino, Jennifer (JWoww) Farley, Nicole (Snooki) Polizzi, Paul (Pauly D) Delvecchio, Sammi Giancola, Vinnie Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
“Jersey Shore” is the top series in MTV history. The fourth season averaged 9.4 million viewers each week, with the season premiere hitting a record 10.5 million people.
Word of the “Jersey Shore” launch date comes as E! tries to figure out how to deal with the demise of Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to basketball star Kris Humphries.
