There's been a flurry of news over the past few days about the progress of two separate "Jersey Shore" spinoffs: one that will follow Pauly D and another focusing on Snooki and JWoww. Meanwhile, the future of "Jersey Shore" itself remains unsettled. As Sammi and Deena told "Live! With Kelly" (weekdays on ABC), MTV has yet to make any decision about whether the show will return for Season 6.
"We haven't heard anything," Sammi told Kelly Ripa and guest-host Jerry O'Connell. "I'm down. I pray we film again. I would love to film. I love filming," Deena chimed in. "We would love to," Sammi said again, sounding a bit worried they might be getting left behind.
In an interview with The Huffington Post in January, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro said that "Jersey Shore" producers had been looking into alternate locations for the show's possible sixth next season, including Las Vegas and Australia. They briefly looked at Brazil, he said, but deemed it too dangerous.
Another location change might be necessary to breathe life into the boozy reality show, which viewers may be growing tired of. The show's Season 5 premiere ratings were down significantly from its Season 4 premiere, which featured the gang living in Florence. Producers have also reportedly considered re-casting the show entirely.
So while the future of "Jersey Shore" remains unclear, it appears that some type of change is inevitable.
