Teen Mom inspired Jersey Shore Season 6 logo

MTV made the surprising official announcement earlier today that they aren’t going to let a little impregnation slow down the momentum of their biggest show! That’s right, Jersey Shore will be returning for a sixth season will filming set to begin this summer as Snooki deals with the latter stages of her pregnancy!

GTL will come to mean Gynecologist, Trimesters, Lactation as drinking and clubbing will be replaced by baby showers and Lamaze classes – at least for Snooki. Here’s the official press release from MTV:

New York, NY (March 19, 2012) – MTV gets ready for fist pumps and baby bumps, with the announcement of a sixth season of “Jersey Shore.” Production is set to begin Summer 2012 in Seaside Heights, NJ.

    really? does mtv not know how to end things? this season is going to be worse than last season.

    • CiCi

      Agreed, this season was bad / boring / meh. I almost miss the days of Ronnie & Sammi fighting!

  • Lilly

    They’ll film from what June-August? Her due date can’t be much past August…are they hoping she’ll have the kid during taping?

    • Hmmm

      I’m 6 weeks and due early November, she is AT LEAST two months ahead of me, so I think they’re literally going JUST UP to her last few weeks.

      • Hmmm

        You know, Snooks hitting the shore just before her life changes forever, I’m into that.

  • Gg

    I actually feel sorry for snooki, she has her show now with that other girl from jersey shore (I am not going to bother to learn how to spell her name lol) and then it looks like soon after that she’ll be shooting jersey shore. When does she have time to relax, baby proof her house and spend time with family ect?
    I’m not a fan of her or jersey shore, I think she changed from a insecure wayward girl to an alcoholic embarrassment, who thinks she better than everyone else. It’s hard to watch jersey shore because she’s just so uncomfortably drunk all the time. I really hate to think that she’s having a baby. I don’t mean to be horrible, but I don’t think mom material when I think of snooki.

    Because a pregnant woman in a house full of booze and housemates having sex with random people is so healthy.

  • ohmygeez

    And we’ll get to hear “I can’t drink cause I’m pregnant. Wah.” OR “I can’t go to Karma because it’s too crowded and I’m pregnant. Wah.”

    • Mandy

      I read that in her voice. *cringe*

  • Annie

    Not going to ly…Im looking forward to season 6!

    • Kari

      I thought I was the only one lol

  • ER

    As stupid of an idea as I think this is, at least maybe she’ll see how annoying people who get stupid drunk like her every night are now that she can’t drink.

  • grosd

    It’s just gonna temp her to go out. And people going in and out of that house isn’t healthy. She’s just a mess

  • whoa

    They think it sounds like a hit to have a bunch of alcoholics in a house with a pregnant woman who whines?

  • A.P.

    Oh god.. Snooki being like 8 months pregnant and Mike not drinking bc he is an alcoholic.. Yeah this seems like a great idea guys.. Now what are we gonna watch? Jwoww & Roger? Yawn. Maybe Ronnie & Sam will be fighting again…

  • anna

    lil meatball comin to the jersey shore

  • uhhhhh

    OMG WTF why in the hell would they make another it just got dull stupid and annoying after the firs season,, I wished that they would atleast have new cast every season.
