Adios, Italy
The 'Shore' crew packs up and heads to U.S.
Just when you thought it was time to goodbye to The Situation, Snooki and the rest of the Jersey Shore crew thanks to casting change reports, Celebuzz is hearing that everyone will be back for more fist-pumping action despite the rumors.

Other outlets are reporting a new Shore cast is in the works, but an MTV network spokesperson tells Celebuzz exclusively: “We love the present cast, and their summer adventures have just begun. We currently have no plans to recast the show.”

UsMagazine initially reported that after wrapping up production in Seaside Heights this summer, the current cast would be let go in lieu for a newer, cheaper cast. TMZ later confirmed the news.

The Us source said a major reason for the change is that a new cast would be “a lot cheaper” than the current salaries, which nets the current crew upwards of $100,000 per episode.

However, our MTV source says there will still be plenty of Ronnie/Sammi fighting to fill your romantic hearts.

The Shore kids just recently got back from Italy, where they were filming the fourth season in Florence. Just because they were overseas shouldn’t mean there will be any shortage of drama, as Ronnie and Situation reportedly got into a fight that left Sitch all bruised up.
