The cast of Jersey Shore will shoot Season 4 in no less than Italy, similar to how the increasingly popular MTV series hoofed it to Miami last spring to find an appropriately balmy setting for Season 2.
“Europe [offers] a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us,” Chris Linn, MTV’s EVP of programming, said in a statement announcing the overseas jaunt. “The cast is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by. We can’t wait to see what erupts as a result.”
Per TMZ, which first reported the news, producers are scouting The Boot as we speak, to find just the right unlucky locale in which to deposit the gang. They’re also lining up some of Vinny Guadagnino’s old-country kin to host an authentic Italian dinner party.
Jersey Shore shot its sophomore run in Miami when the rush to get back on the air precluded returning to Seaside Heights, which isn’t particularly sun-baked in March.
Season 4, however, is said to be starting production in May, HollywoodLife.com reported — and that just so happens to be primo beach weather in Sicily.
Again, I ask: How do you say, “We’re sorry” in Italian?
