The cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore has been spending lots of quality time together lately, first getting together for a “family dinner” Burger King commercial, then to film an E! reunion special called Jersey Shore Road Trip. Most recently, the gang (sans Ronnie Magro-Ortiz), got together to celebrate cast member Deena Cortese’s wedding — eee!. While it warms our hearts to see the GTL squad in action, it’s not quitttteee the same as their MTV glory days — Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” LaValle are both moms now, after all. Lucky for us, the network just announced a new addition to its Shore franchise with Floribama Shore: a long overdue offshoot of the original reality series that’s sure to bring just as much fun (and drama!) into our lives as the original!
Floribama Shore is set in the northwestern part of Florida known as the Panhandle, which stretches from Panama City Beach all the way to bordering state Alabama.
The show will feature eight young Southern kids ranging in age from 21 to 25: Jeremiah Buoni from Amelia Island, FL, Codi Butts from Westminster, SC, Kortni Gilson from Panama City Beach, FL, Aimee Hall from Perdido, AL, Kirk Medas from Atlanta, GA, Nilsa Prowant from Panama City Beach, FL, Candace Rice from Memphis, TN, and Gus Smyrnios from Tallahassee, FL.
They’ve come to spend their summer on the beach to “party it up and put the real world on hold for just a little bit longer,” according to MTV.
The network has teamed back up with with Jersey Shore creator and executive producer SallyAnn Salsano and her 495 Production crew for the eight-episode series, which will premiere on Monday, November 27 at 10:00pm/9c.
The first teaser clip features a nod to the infamous Jersey Shore duck phone with a new, geographically relevant alligator phone.
It’s official: We’re already marking the date in our calendars — underscored and highlighted!
