The fourth season of Jersey Shore will premiere August 4.
The fifth season of the show will air sometime after that!
Currently wreaking havoc filming in Italy - where Snooki's been involved in some rough rear-ending (of the automotive variety this time) and Ronnie's been beating the crap outta Sitch - the gang will be back home for season five.
MTV is scheduled to start shooting in the ol' stomping grounds of Seaside Heights, N.J., later this month. Commence fist-pumping in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ...
The Jersey Shore guys in Italy, pre-Sitch beatdown.
