MTV dropped a double whammy of craziness on viewers last night:
First, the cable network debuted Floribama Shore.
Yes, this is the actual title of an actual show that is meant to be just like Jersey Shore, only set on the Florida/Alabama border.
Second, the cable network is bringing back the actual Jersey Shore!
During the broadcast of Floribama Shore Season 1 Episode 1, MTV announced this stunning news to viewers via a brief teaser.
It relayed a simple message from original Jersey Shore cast members that reads as follows:
We're Back Bitchesssssssss!
Yes, in the biggest surprise of all, the following original cast members had nothing better to do than return to the small screen and anchor Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
- Deena Nicole Cortese
- Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio
- Jenni “JWOWW” Farley
- Vinny Guadagnino
- Ronnie Ortiz-Magro
- Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
- Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino
Check out the aforementioned teaser here:
"WHERE’S THE BEACH?! The cast of #JerseyShore is headed out on a family vacation coming to @MTV in 2018," the show also Tweeted along with this promo.
It's unclear what the premise of the Jersey Shore revival will be, but let's be honest:
It will be these people drinking heavily, going to bars, getting into arguments, heading to the gym, doing laundry and hitting up tanning salons.
Then again, Snooki, Sitch and company are at a different place in their lives now than they were during the six-season run of the first version of the series.
Heck, Snooki and JWOWW are parents now.
The former recently said her son has changed her life for the better, writing of little Lorenzo:
"You are my world, and I'm so proud to be your mommy!
"I remember when I first laid eyes on you and knew I would protect you with all of my being until the day I die."
Can't you go back to asking where the f-ck the beach is at? That makes for far more entertaining television.
Back in early November, however, when rumors of a spinoff started circulating around the Internet, a user Tweeted at Snooki:
"You guys are a bit too old for the Jersey Shore."
Thankfully, she replied as follows:
"I’m 29, 2 kids, Married & can still funnel wine and do cartwheels on the dance floor. We aren’t dead."
Quite the opposite, in fact.
They are about to be brought back to totally wasted life!
Jersey Shore will premiere its Family Vacation some time in 2018.
Are you psyched?!?
Or did that lame Jersey Shore reunion ruin the series forever?
Will you tune in to see Snooki and JWOWW stumble home drunk again?
Or has this image been tainted by the knowledge that they should probably be walking calmly home to take care of their children instead?
So many questions. So many possible answers. So many shots to throw down.
We'll see you next year, Jersey Shore.
