'Jersey Shore'

Cast, MTV Strike Deal

1/29/2010 11:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The entire "Jersey Shore" cast has agreed in principle to come back on board for Season 2 ... sources connected with the negotiations tell TMZ.

As we first reported, MTV gave The Situation, Snooki, Pauly D and the rest of the crew a deadline of today at the end of business, or else they'd all be replaced. We know the offer on the table was $10,000 per episode ... we do not know the magic number that ended the stalemate.

We're told lawyers are trying to work out specific language and terms and they're all hoping they can put a bow on it tonight.

UPDATE
: We've learned Vinny accepted MTV's $10,000 per episode offer. We're told one of the terms the lawyers are hammering out is the number of appearances the cast can make outside the show. Cast members -- especially Snooki, Pauly D and The Situation -- want the right to appear at as many as four clubs and other venues a week ... where they've been raking in good money in appearance fees.

I hope that Angelina's not on it - she left so early on - she's really not a part of the cast to most people anymore.

But I don't think it'll be as good, they're too "famous" now - storylines will be created for them.

THIS IS A HUGE MISTAKE BY MTV. There should be all new people on the show next season. By Bringing back the same people you have now just turned this show into The Hills(scripted)!!!

The whole thing was hinging on Vinnie?
for realz?
He is by far the most boring character who wouldn't have been missed.
Sounds like he's a good negotiator though.

Of course they did. Where else would they go, what else would they do? (other than appear at nightclubs and that would benefit them about 6 months max if they left the show)

Zero people should be surprised, they're going to stay on this show to the very end because after this show their career on TV is over. It'll be back to gay escorting for Mr. Situation.

Instead of that, why don't they just pay them all $10,000 each to kill themselves.

This is kind of stupid. Why not save the money and get a whole new cast like MTV does with the Real World each year?
