The Jersey Shore crew are back for another season of spin-off Family Vacation.
Airing weekly on MTV, the reality show will follow a number of the show’s original cast members as they travel to Florida Keys for a month’s vacation, and they’ll also be joined by their children.
But that’s not the only big surprise in store as Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will make a comeback for the new season, which was announced back when the show was renewed in September 2021.
Here is everything you need to know about the new season.
What time will Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 5 air on MTV?
Season 5 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will begin airing on MTV on Thursday, January 6 with its premiere episode.
MTV announced the new season will see the cast members “get back together and they’re putting it all on the table,” and they are also expected to “bring the non-stop party” as only they can do.
The new season will air on the channel at 8 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. CT.
How many episodes will be in Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 5?
So far only eight episodes have been confirmed for the season, but there may well be more as Season 4 had 28 episodes in total, while Season 3 had 29.
The previous seasons of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation were split into two parts, but it has yet to be revealed if this will also be the case for Season 5.
Teasing the drama that is in store for viewers, the first episode is titled “Deliveries and Deadlines,” while the second is “Snooki vs. the Rock.”
Who is starring in Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 5?
As previously mentioned, Snooki will return as a main cast member in Season 5, after departing it after Season 3 and making a guest appearance in the second half of Season 4.
She will be joined by series regulars Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese, and Angelina Pivarnick.
On May 13, 2021, cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro announced he was taking a step away from reality TV after he was arrested for domestic violence and released on a $100,000 bond, and would not star in the show’s fifth season.
He issued a statement in an Instagram post at the time, which US Weekly reported he said: “After talking to the team at MTV, we have mutually agreed that I will step away from the show while I seek medical treatment for mental health issues that I’ve ignored for too long.
“My number one goal now is facing my struggles head on. My #1 priority is to get healthy and be the best man and the best father I can [be] for my daughter.”
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs on MTV on Thursday, January 6 at 8 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. CT.
