‘Reunion Road Trip: Return to the Jersey Shore’ will see Snooki, Pauly D, JWoww, the Situation, Sammi Sweetheart and more embarking on an epic road trip down memory lane.
Coming together for the first time in five years, they will discuss relationships, recent press, juicy behind-the-scenes moments and, of course, the show that made them household names.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Jersey Shore reunion will serve as the pilot for the series. Producers are exploring both unscripted and scripted series casts as possibilities for potential future episodes.
“Jersey Shore,” based in Seaside Heights, broke MTV viewership records when it ran from 2009 to 2012.
Over the years, the series also starred Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese and Angelina Pivarnick, though it’s unclear if any of them will take part in the upcoming special.

Same old crazy people
E! also released a brief teaser of the series that shows Sorrentino, Polizzi, and Delvecchio coming together for the first time. They catch fans up on their lives since the show ended.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news of the upcoming docu-series last month, and with the premiere date already announced, new information keeps coming in.
According to outlets, a segment of the episode was filmed at Jenkinson’s Pavilion Restaurant in Point Pleasant Beach.
However, the “Jersey Shore” reunion was not welcomed back with open arms everywhere at the Jersey Shore. An application for a permit to film in Seaside Heights was rejected, said Borough Administrator Christopher Vaz.
Producers also wanted to shoot inside the Langosta Lounge restaurant on the Asbury Park boardwalk but were denied permission by management there.
The cast also reunited to film an extended commercial at the Burger King in Barnegat Village Square, Barnegat, in July.
They got together to pitch the new Burger King chicken parm sandwich in the nearly six-minute spot. It was posted to Burger King social media sites.
