Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 4 concluded on Sept. 2, but the fun isn’t over according to executive producer SallyAnn Salsano. The reality TV mastermind behind the MTV series tweeted about a Jersey Shore: Family Vacation “special” slated to air next week. Here’s what we know about the upcoming episode, plus details about the reality series’ confirmed season 5.
‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 4 goes out with a bang
Mike “The Situation” and Lauren Sorrentino revealed the sex of their son, Romeo Reign, in December 2020. But that didn’t stop “Big Daddy Sitch” from wanting to run through a wall and redo the reveal in the season 4 finale of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
“We will avenge the loss that happened 10 years ago,” Mike tweeted during the episode, referring to the wall in Italy he hit headfirst during season 4. Part of the big reveal involved the rest of the roommates blasting off cannons full of colored powder.
Angelina Larangeira accidentally aimed hers right at her husband, Chris’ face. “Dam, did I just shoot my husband in the eye with a canon???” she tweeted during the episode.
The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation cast, including producer Salsano, tweeted as the finale was airing. “Thank god he’s okay,” Angelina said in another tweet. According to Salsano, there’s more to the story of Angelina hitting Chris in the face that will allegedly be addressed in the special next week.
