Pauly D Spinoff Series Announced by MTV

Let’s have a round of celebratory fist-pumps, everybody, because it’s official: Pauly D is going solo!

MTV announced today that the Jersey Shore breakout star—real name: Paul Delvecchio—has landed his own spinoff series, which will chronicle the 30-year-old’s life as a DJ in Las Vegas. (According to reports, Delvecchio began filming the series in Sin City in October.)

In announcing the spinoff, Chris Linn, Executive Vice President of Programming and Head of Promotions at MTV, noted,

“[Pauly D has] distinguished himself onscreen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed and dependable guy you can’t help but want to hang out with. We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that.”

Don’t despair, though; Pauly will still be with Snooki, The Situation and the rest of the gang when Jersey Shore returns for its third season on January 6. (And if you haven’t already seen the trailer for the upcoming season, you really owe it to yourself.)
