Reality TV fans who have tired of the ongoing unscripted serial called American Politics have something to look forward to. MTV said today that new Season 2 episodes of its hit redux Jersey Shore Family Vacation will premiere at 8 p.m. Thursday, July 11. Watch the first promo above.
Ranking as one of the top unscripted series on cable among adults 18-49, JSFW features original housemates Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio,” Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Angelina Pivarnick, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
Yes, the gang’s all here, but a lot has changed. The now-thirtysomethings rally around Mike, who’s facing prison time and planning a wedding; Deena is about to give birth; Jenni’s contemplating divorce; Ronnie’s fed up with all the jokes at his expense; and Pauly can’t resist just one wedding prank.
The Jersey Shore phenomenon that began a decade ago (!) has spawned a number of spinoffs including Floribama Shore — which was renewed for a third season this week — and international remakes such as Geordie Shore (UK), Gandia Shore (Spain), Warsaw Shore (Poland) and Acapulco Shore (Mexico).
Jersey Shore Family Vacation hails from the original series’ creator/executive producer SallyAnn Salsano, who executive produces through her 495 Productions.
