MTV Renews Jersey Shore For Season 6

Jersey ShoreGarden State beachgoers, plan your vacations accordingly: MTV has renewed Jersey Shore for a sixth season, with production set to begin this summer in Seaside Heights.

In making the announcement, the cabler acknowledged that the new season finds the GTL crew heading into “unchartered territory as their lives outside the Shore take off in exciting new directions.”

Despite experiencing some ratings erosion, Shore remains a potent player for MTV. Its just-wrapped fifth season averaged nearly 8 million viewers. Jersey Shore: The Reunion airs this Thursday at 10/9c.

The renewal comes as MTV gears up for the March 29 launch of The Pauly D Project, the first of several Jersey Shore spinoffs in the pipeline.
