We all knew there would be a sixth season of Jersey Shore. Even though the ratings have declined over the last two seasons — seasons which were mainly memorable for their ongoing portrait of The Situation’s transformation from John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever into Daniel Day-Lewis at the end of There Will Be Blood — the show remains one of MTV’s biggest hits ever. But in the wake of Snooki’s announcement about her impending pregnancy (and nuptials), it seemed unlikely that the whole cast would be back for another go-round. However, MTV announced today that season 6 of Jersey Shore will commence filming this summer in Seaside Heights… and everyone will be back. “MTV gets ready for fist pumps and baby bumps,” says a press release, noting that “America’s favorite housemates will all return … and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory.”
Since Snooki’s baby is reportedly due in the fall — just a few months before the end of the Mayan calendar — it would appear that the show’s unofficial mascot will spend season 6 in the third trimester of her pregnancy. Which certainly could throw a wrench into the house’s dynamics. Will The Situation claim the baby is his? Will Pauly and Vinny squabble over which of them should be the baby’s godfather? Will Deena unsuccessfully attempt to flirt with the Snooki-fetus? Will J-Woww boob boob? So many questions, not enough answers!
