MTV has confirmed that the popular reality television program Jersey Shore is coming to an end after season six, according to The Hollywood Reporter. For a while, rumors suggested that the network would continue the series with a brand new cast, though apparently this is no longer the case. As of this writing, Jersey Shore is MTV’s highest-rated series of all time. Depending on your opinion of the show, that’s either a really good thing or a very bad thing.
Before getting down to business with season six on October 6, the network will air the retrospective Gym, Tan, Look Back on September 6, mere hours before the broadcast of the MTV Video Music Awards. The entire episode is expected to promote the show during this year’s ceremony.
MTV, which describes the Gym, Tan, Look Back documentary as a reward for the show’s fans, stated in the press release that the retrospective will contain “cast interviews in which they reminisce about quintessential water-cooler moments from the show, share their personal feelings on the last six seasons, and give their perspective on the series that turned them into household names.”
If you love everything about Jersey Shore, you’re probably a little depressed right about now. However, all hope is not lost. According to TV By the Numbers, the spin-off series Snooki & JWOWW was recently renewed for second season. If that’s still not enough to satiable your appetite, the news surrounding Snooki’s baby will certainly do the trick.
MTV debuted Jersey Shore on December 3, 2009, and it didn’t take long for the show to catch fire. Although large amounts of people tuned into the adventures of eight housemates who spent their summer at the titular location, quite a few individuals thought the program was not a very good representation of New Jersey and its residents. Regardless, the show continued to gain in popularity, garnering 9 million viewers at the high water mark.
