MTV's 'Jersey Shore' Is Ending for Good

The final season will begin airing in October.

Love or hate its rambunctious cast, the show that made Seaside Heights famous—or, at least, infamous—is going off the air.

MTV announced Thursday afternoon its hit series Jersey Shore will end after a recently taped season airs this fall.

The sixth season of the series, which since 2009 has chronicled the oft-drunken misadventures of eight twentysomethings living in a house on Ocean Terrace in Seaside Heights, will premiere Oct. 4 at 10 p.m.

But when the season ends, the show and the cast will not return.

The network will air the retrospective Gym, Tan, Look Back as part of a farewell marathon Sept. 6, and the cast will make an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards that night.

Lately, the production crews have been filming a spin-off show, Snooki and J-Woww, in Manchester.

The network has not offered a reason why the original series is ending.

In addition to the well-documented antics at local night spots such as Karma, Aztec and The Beachcomber Bar and Grill, three cast members wound up in handcuffs over the last several summers the show has taped in Ocean County.

Cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was accepted into the state's pretrial intervention program after being charged with aggravated assault, and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Deena Cortese both were arrested and paid fines relating to borough ordinance violations in Seaside for nuisance behavior.

Virgil "Gus" Grissom was one of NASA's early astronauts and could possibly have been one of the ones who went to the moon had he not died in '67. And he was from Indiana.

Real Jersey folks know what Jersey is like.. Everyone is saying they gave Jersey a bad name.. When sopranos was on did anyone say that then? How about those New Jersey housewives? There was a casting call for the Jersey shore and those people we're chosen.. It's MTV you all should have beef with.. Not the cast.. They we're paid to do a job and they did it... The cast made millions for themselves.. Wouldn't you take that job for the money too?

I don’t think too many people will admit they will miss Jersey Shore. That said, I was surprised when my coworker at Dish said they were really going to miss the show. They loved watching the Situation and said he inspired them to get into shape. My coworker has a Hopper DVR with a 2 TB hard drive. He has been recording Jersey Shore every time it comes on so he can re-watch the show over and over. I guess with the 2000 hours of recording time available he’ll have plenty of room, but, using it for Jersey Shore? That I’m not sure about.
