MTV has announced that Jersey Shore‘s upcoming sixth season (debuting Oct. 4) will be its last.
The network will air an hour-long retrospective, followed by an interview with the cast, as a lead-in to this year’s MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday, Sept. 6.
Prior to the look back, which begins at 6 pm and features a sneak peek at the upcoming season, MTV will show a marathon of noteworthy episodes.
If you just can’t handle this Situation, slap on a fresh coat of Chapstick and take a deep breath. The series was the highest-rated in the network’s history, and although it lost some vodka-fueled steam in the last few outings, its Season 5 averaged 8 million viewers. Bottom line: MTV will likely
fist pump out some more spin-offs (a la Snooki & JWOWW and The Pauly D Project) in the future.
