'Jersey Shore' Season 6 Will Be Series' Last
MTV has confirmed to Celebuzz that the Jersey Shore cast will be saying its final farewell with its upcoming sixth season.
The franchise series' last season kicks off on Oct. 4 at 10 PM ET/PT, followed by bonus programming of fan-favorite after-shows and reunion specials.
The news comes after the fist-pumping, party-hopping juggernaut saw ratings decline during the last few seasons.
Does this mean the party is over the for the Jersey Shore family?
While the cast — which includes Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Samantha "Sammi Sweetheart" Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino and Angelina Pivarnick — won't return to summer on the Shore, a few of the stars will continue with their planned MTV spinoff series.
Snooki — who gave birth to son Lorenzo LaValle on Sunday — and her BFF costar JWoww will continue with their show, Snooki & JWoww, which premiered its first 12-episode season on June 21. It was confirmed earlier this month that the ladies will film a second season. The Pauly D Project, which debuted in March, has yet to announce another season.
Some of the Jersey Shore stars are leaving MTV, but sticking to the small screen. The Situation, after a small cameo role on ABC's Suburgatory, is now a housemate on season 10 of Celebrity Big Brother.
Others of the GTL crew may have new careers in mind. Following the announcement of the show's cancellation, Guadagnino tweeted — perhaps with a tinge of sarcasm — his White House aspirations. "Alright, so I guess I'll run for president now #Vinny2012."
And he wasn't the only one to sound off on the news on Twitter. "It's been one hell of a ride but this is just the beginning!" Sammi Sweetheart wrote to her followers. "Thank you all for your love & support throughout the seasons!! These memories will never be forgotten!!"
Pauly D shared her sentiment, tweeting: "All Good Things Must Come To An End, But #TeamDJPaulyD Lives On And It's Just Getting Started !!! Tweet I AM #TeamDJPaulyD If You With Me."
