Jersey Shore Announces Season Premiere Date… and Return of Snooki!

She’s coming back, folks.

And not a moment too soon.

MTV released the first trailer for a new run of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation episodes on Tuesday, coming out with fresh footage of all our old favorites…

… including one very old favorite who many viewers feared they would never see again.

Yes, fans, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is on her way back.

As teased below, the veteran cast members will take their drunken show to the Poconos this summer, as they continue to exist in a quasi bubble due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Among the major storylines featured in this trailer?

Someone is engaged.

Someone is expecting a baby boy.

A bunch of people are wrestling inside of an actual ring.

And Snooki is popping out of a cake… prior to falling down and off of a stage, seemingly very drunk.

Here is the official network synopsis:

Last trip brought the family back together following the infamous bridesmaids’ speech.

And now, once again, the roommates are packing up and inviting their friends, family and loved ones for a Jersey-style family vacation.

Between engagements, birthdays and gender reveals, there’s plenty to celebrate on this trip.

From Vinny getting pro-wrestling-body-slammed by Jenni’s boyfriend and a new definition of “Italian Ice” to the first, and maybe last, Jersey Shore Family Vacation Talent Show, this season features some of the most unexpected moments yet. 

But the biggest Jerzday surprise comes when Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi returns to shake things up.

Hooray, right?!?

Snooki announced her shocking departure from the series in December 2019.

“I love you so much and don’t hate me for my decision, but I have to do what’s best for me at the moment, and I am retiring from Jersey Shore,” she said at the time.

Snooki did seem to leave the door open a bit for an eventual return, however, adding:

“I am not coming back to Jersey Shore [Family Vacation] for a season four, if there is one.

“And there’s a lot of reasons why, but the main reason is really, I’m just like…I just can’t do it anymore.”

It seemed back then that Snooki was simply sick of all the drama, having spent her latest season clashing with Angelina over her mean bridemaids speech at her so-called friend’s wedding.

Snooki also said she wanted to spend a lot more time with her family.

“I hate being away from the kids, I don’t like partying three days in a row, it’s just not my life anymore,” the 32-year-old explained, continuing as follows:

“And I wanna be home with the kids. I don’t mind a here or there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard on me to leave the kids and film the show.”

So, what changed in the last year and a half?

Perhaps Snooki’s kids got older (okay, they definitely got older) and things are easier now.

Perhaps MTV just cut her a gigantic check.

Or perhaps she’s only coming back for one episode.

We can’t say for certain right now.

But we’re sure producers will take anything that distracts viewers from the ongoing scandals of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.

Check out the trailer below, and prepare for new Jersey Shore episodes beginning on Thursday, June 3.
