The 'Jersey Shore' Reunion Release Date Is Here

Yeah, buddy!
February 7, 2018, 7:45pm

After more than five years, the Seaside staples—Mike "The Situation," Pauly D, JWoww, Ronnie, Vinny, Deena, and Snooki—will reunite in MTV's Jersey Shore Family Vacation, which, for reasons unexplained, will take place during the winter in Miami.

On Wednesday, MTV announced the reunion's premiere date, April 5, and debuted the first trailer, which really doesn't offer too much. But that's no reason not to pump your fists in excitement! For now, a succession of quick shots is all we need: Pauly hugging somebody, some playful dry-humping, the whole gang holding up their glasses (of water?) for the camera. We also get to see what looks like Snooki about to chug a jar of pickle juice. (We all know how much she loves them.) And Deena is doing what Deena does best: shouting vaguely incoherently at strangers.

"We're your new neighbors!" she screams across the river as rowers go by—surprisingly in an upright position.

There's little we know about what's going to transpire between our favorite guidos and guidettes, but they'll have a lot of catching up to do at Sunday dinner, about—say—Mike's tax evasion or Vinny's recent foray into climate change activism. Still, there are a lot of unanswered questions. Namely: Have they grown up? Is Sammi Sweetheart, who's conspicuously absent, going to make a surprise appearance and profess her undying love for Ronnie? Does JWoww continue to crush coffee beans with a garlic mincer? Will they all work in a T-shirt shop? And, hey, how's Mike's head?

We're just two months away. Yeah, buddy!
