Upon its premiere on April 5, 2018, ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’ opened to a positive response from the viewers, and fans of its predecessor ‘Jersey Shore,’ embraced the spin-off with open arms. It follows the housemates from the original show as they stay under the same roof, while on a vacation, and deal with the ups and downs in their lives. The critics were divided on the show as some slammed it for being unnecessarily dramatic, while some touted it as a “guilty pleasure watch.”
Despite receiving mixed reviews, the reality show amassed a loyal fan-following, which paved the way for it to spawn three seasons. Season 3 concluded recently, and fans must be awaiting an update on ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’ season 4. We might be able to help you with that.
Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 4 Release Date
‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’ season 3 premiered on MTV on August 22, 2019, and concluded its run on June 18, 2020, after airing 29 episodes of 40-45 minutes each.
MTV hasn’t made any announcement regarding the future of the show but here’s everything we know. Firstly, in December 2019, on an episode of ‘It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey’ podcast, Nicole Polizzi AKA Snooki announced her retirement from the show.
“I am not coming back to Jersey Shore [Family Vacation] for a Season 4 if there is one. When I leave my kids and I film the show, I want to have a good time, and I’m putting myself out there and I just want to come off as a good person,” Nicole said. “That’s just not how the show works, and that’s how it’s becoming. I don’t want that… and I don’t like the person I’m being portrayed as, and this is getting [to be] a little too much.”
Secondly, can the show continue without Snooki? Yes. Will it? Well, the jury is still out on that but considering the show’s popularity and ratings, it will be safe to say that a fourth season is most likely on the horizon. If it does get renewed, we can expect ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’ season 4 to release sometime in 2021 on MTV.
Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 4 Cast: Who is in it?
Except for Nicole Polizzi, almost all the cast members will come back for another season. The returning cast can include Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul DelVecchio AKA Pauly D, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Magro, Jenni Farley AKA JWoww, Mike Sorrentino AKA The Situation/ The Designation, and Angelina Pivarnick. Mike Sorrentino’s wife Lauren Pesce and JWoww’s boyfriend Zack Carpinello AKA 24 might also make a few appearances in the fourth season.
Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 4 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 3 is undoubtedly the most dramatic one in the history of the series. It features Mike’s emotional reunion with the gang after getting released from prison. Following his nasty separation from Jen Harley, Ronnie checks himself into rehab. Deena and Nicole introduce their babies AKA “Meatballs” to the rest of the crew, while Jenni throws a divorce party, after her official split from Roger Matthews.
Jenni and Zack begin dating, and a controversy ensues when Zack gets way too handsy with Angelina at a party. The highlight of the season has to be Angelina Pivarnick’s bachelorette party at New Orleans and her wedding to Chris Larangeira, which leads to a massive fight between the girls after they give a not-so-subtle bridesmaid speech on their wedding night.
Season 4 might showcase the changes in the relationship dynamics of Angelina, Deena, and Jenni, after the explosive fight at Angie’s wedding. With Nicole out of the picture, it will be interesting to see how well the housemates manage in her absence. Also, after the major PWoww tease in the third season, we can expect Jenni and Pauly to either get down to business or fuse the spark, once and for all. Season 4 can also display the fate of Jenni and Zack’s tumultuous relationship. Will it stand the test of time or succumb to the pressure of Zack’s past?
