‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 4: Filming Begins Without Snooki and Fans Are ‘Heartbroken’

Fans of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 3 will never forget the speech heard around the world. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and Deena Cortese gave a bridesmaid speech at Angelina Pivarnick‘s wedding in November 2019. However, it was so inappropriate that it leaked months before airing on MTV in June 2020. 

Shortly after the fallout from the speech, Snooki told her fans that she would not be returning to film another season. Viewers thought that she would eventually change her mind, but it looks like filming is plowing ahead without one beloved meatball.

Which cast members are returning for ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 4?

Many of the original cast members are coming back, including Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Vinny Guadagnino, Pauly DelVecchio, and Angelina Pivarnick. More recently, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Cortese told fans that they would also return.

“I have exciting news,” JWoww wrote in a now-removed tweet on July 31, 2020. “I’m back, b*tches.”

She shared the news with an article that she wrote on her news site, “Miss Domesticated.” The note from JWOWW explained that along with her website’s return, she is officially back for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 4.

Deena Cortese also revealed to fans on Instagram that filming had begun at her house, with another later removed post. 

Snooki confirmed that she is not returning to ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’

“IT’S HAPPENING #jsfamilyvacation 4,” The Situation captioned a photo of himself with wife Lauren Sorrentino. 

Fans did not miss the reply that Snooki added to her former roommate’s post.

“Yasss, can’t wait to watch you both,” Snooki commented on The Situation’s Instagram photo. “So proud of my fam.”

Polizzi now joins Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola as another roommate never to return to the show. In a recent YouTube video, she again detailed why she won’t return.

“Just personally, for me, I can’t deal with the freakin’ drama anymore,” Snooki explained in the clip. “I am out.”

Snooki fans are ‘heartbroken’ that she won’t return

“[It’s] never going to be the same without you,” one fan wrote on Sorrentino’s Instagram photo. “I love all of the Jersey Shore cast members, but you made the show 10x better.”

The reality TV star told fans she was retiring for several reasons included not wanting to leave her three children anymore.

“Hoping you’ll change your mind!” another fan added.

However, with filming underway, it looks like Snooki is off the show for good. She did tease to her fans that she has other Reality TV ideas in the works.

“Heartbroken,” another viewer wrote. “Don’t know if I’ll be watching; it’s not a family vacation without Snooki.”

Many other fans shared the same sentiments. Hopefully, she will get another TV show going soon so that fans can get their Snooki fill another way.
