Well, it’s really happening people. The Jersey Shore crew is back together again for another ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’. You will be forgiven if you missed the first season while trump was setting the country’s reputation on fire last year – I did too.
So far as I can judge from the official trailer, this ‘family vacation’ is entirely sans the cast’s actual family: we get mentions of JWoww’s kids & MeatHead Ronnie drops that he’s going to be a dad. Mike’s involved in another lawsuit*, Snooky & Deena are shown stumbling around per usual, and Vinnie and Pauly are present and breathing. The whole crew is put up at a McMansion typical of this type of MTV ‘reality’ show and other than random references to their invisible kids and significant others, it looks like a return to Jersey Shore and a show we’ve already seen. The crew may be older and a bit more toned down, but the fist pumps, drunkenness, and all the other assorted BS is completely the same.

*in 2014, ‘The Situation” and his brother Marc were “indicted for tax offenses and conspiring to defraud the U.S. Now, a superseding indictment includes new charges against both men. Michael is now also charged with tax evasion and structuring funds to evade currency transaction reports. Plus, Marc is now also charged with falsifying records to obstruct a grand jury investigation. An arraignment on the superseding indictment is scheduled on April 17.”
