‘JSFV’ Hasn’t Been Cancelled, But ‘Jersey Shore 2.0’ Could Eventually Be
Jersey Shore 2.0 was announced in May 2022. The series was set to feature a new group of roommates who would be living together at a property in Atlantic City, New Jersey for the summer.
When the news broke, the original jerseyshore cast made a statement about the reboot on social media. “As a cast that took a chance with a network in need, we put our most vulnerable moments on television for the world to see,” they shared in a joint statement on Twitter.
“We’ve given it our all over the past 13 years, we’ve become a family, and we continue to open our lives to the world. So please understand that we’re not supporting a release that will exploit our original show, our hard work and our authenticity to win viewers.

Still, 495 Productions continued with the new concept, but not without hitting a few speed bumps. They initially struggled to find a filming location — Atlantic City didn’t want the same reputation Seaside Heights gained after the original series.
Additionally, according to TMZ, the producers had issues getting the reboot series off the ground. The outlet reported that a cast member was cut after producers found “homophobic and racist posts on a parent’s social media.”
Despite these issues, MTV has not officially unplugged Jersey Shore 2.0. In that same July 2022 TMZ report, they reported that MTV executives were looking to regroup and resume production.
