Well, it looks like there will not be a 2.0 version of “gym, tan, laundry.” At least not for now.
Production on “Jersey Shore 2.0” has encountered a… situation.
In the event you’re a diehard ‘meatball’/OG ‘JS’ fan and had no clue a 2.0 version was even in production; the feeling is mutual.
TMZ exclusively learned production on MTV’s latest version of “Jersey Shore” has come to a screeching halt.
“Jersey Shore 2.0” Has Hit A Road Block In Production
This bump in the road happened less than a week after production started.
The outlet learned the massive home in Atlantic City, New Jersey was already outfitted with cameras, lighting and a security team; however, everything suddenly came to a stop.
Sources close to production told TMZ that the only explanations to pull the plug so abruptly is an issue with the cast.
There’s Reportedly Issues Within The New Cast
There’s a possibility they don’t vibe or there was a behavioral issue.
This may not be the end of ‘JS 2.0’ as details are still being worked out.
MTV has only confirmed production has been “paused.” The network will not announce who is going to be on the show, but it is known there will be a younger crew than the original cast.
“Jersey Shore” rose to fame in the mid-2000s and made super stars out of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, DJ Pauly D, Jenni ‘JWOWW’ Farley, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Cortese, Angelina Pivarnick, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
Speaking of the OG cast, who wreaked havoc in Seaside Heights, Miami, Florida, and Italy, they are reportedly FUMING about the new show.
When news of 2.0 show was coming out, they issued a joint message.
The OG Cast Of “Jersey Shore” Doesn’t Support 2.0 Show!
Back in May, the cast of “Jersey Shore” took a stance against MTV and royally pissed off. the network.
“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. We gave our all the past 13 years, became a family and continue to open our lives to the world,” the joint statement read. “So please understand that we are not in support of a version that will exploit our original show, our hard work and authenticity to gain viewers.”
The OG cast signed off the statement “#WeAreJerseyShore.”
Snooki very briefly expressed her disdain for “Jersey Shore 2.0” on her podcast, “It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey.”
According to reports, the statement issued by the OG cast has nothing to do with the halting production.
Per TMZ, high-level sources at MTV claim the head honchos of the company were blindsided and PISSED.
They reportedly called the cast “ungrateful” and said,“ It’s disgusting they’d take a swipe at the network.”
