LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Jersey Shore” is headed to the Motherland.
The network announced Tuesday the popular MTV reality TV series will film its fourth season in Italy.
MTV programming vice president Chris Linn said the “Jersey Shore” gang is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by.
The series documents the hard-partying lifestyle of a group of Italian-Americans, including Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
The first and third season, which is currently airing, are set in Seaside Heights, N.J., while the second season sent the cast to Miami.
