Jersey Shore Family Vacation wrapped its third season on June 18, and MTV didn't leave fans hanging about the future of the series for too long. The hit series that reunited the cast of Jersey Shore for some new shenanigans has officially been renewed for a fourth season on the cable network. It will return with some changes, including one major cast member missing, but the stars hit social media to celebrate the renewal.
All things considered, the renewal doesn't come as a huge shock. The Season 3 finale of Jersey Shore Family Vacation on June 18 was the highest-rated episode in years, with a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 age demographic in Live+Same day calculations, making it Jersey Shore Family Vacation's best-rated episode since 2018. In Live+3 day numbers, the audience totals 1.7 million, making it the #1 cable series on the night of June 18. No wonder the stars have a renewal to celebrate!
Vinny Guadagnino, who revealed lifelong weight struggles while also showing off his newly ripped body back in April, posted this:
Vinny directly addressed fans in his celebratory post, with the assurance that Jersey Shore Family Vacation isn't going anywhere. Of the fans who checked out his tweet, a lot of them seemed anxious for Angelina Pivarnick to leave the show in Season 4, with some citing the "drama." Then again, what would Jersey Shore or Family Vacation be without the drama?
DJ Pauly D also hit Twitter to share his feelings about the Season 4 renewal, posting:
Fans may not have been able to recognize Pauly D with his facial hair that he was rocking in April, but he seems pretty excited to be giving them another season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation. As for Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, (who lost a lot of weight during his time behind bars), he chose a pretty perfect message in his own celebratory post:
A play on his own nickname and a bicep emoji? That's a pretty fitting way to hype the fact that Jersey Shore Family Vacation will be back for at least one more season on MTV. Unfortunately for diehard Jersey Shore and Family Vacation fans, however, the show will return for Season 4 without one longtime cast member. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi made good on her threats to quit the series.
Although Snooki cited the show's "toxic environment" as her reason for leaving Jersey Shore Family Vacation, she was right out there on Twitter to celebrate the renewal with her former fellow cast members:
MTV didn't announce when Jersey Shore Family Vacation will return to the airwaves for Season 4. The second and third seasons both debuted in August, not too long after the previous season ended. The said, social distancing and production shutdowns throughout the entertainment industry may mean a much longer wait than usual for more Family Vacation.
For now, you can always get your Jersey Shore fix with all six seasons of the series' original run streaming on Hulu. If you're in the market for some more TV this summer, check out our 2020 premiere schedule!
