It’s almost Jerzday! A new episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation premieres Thursday (Aug. 31) at 8 p.m. on MTV.
For the second part of season 6, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola returns to the cast, which includes Pauly D, Mike Sorrentino, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley,
Vinny Guadagnino and Angelina Pivarnick. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro also returns this season.
Farley spoke about Giancola’s return during an interview on Live With Kelly & Mark on Wednesday.
“Shocked isn’t the word; my jaw hit the ground,” she recalled. “We were all living our best life in Pennsylvania, cooking Sunday dinner and she’s just like ‘hey guys’ and walks in.”
Farley also talked about Giancola’s hiatus from the show and her decision to pull back from the group. “It was very hurtful going through that, but I understood why [she needed a break].
I swore she would never come back! When I saw her walk through [the door] I was like is this AI? This can’t be her!”
Season 6 is already off to a good start in the ratings race. The premiere episode gave the series its highest ratings in over four years, Deadline reports. New episodes will premiere weekly.
