'Jersey Shore' Cast

In the Dark on Season 5 Plans

6/5/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources close to the "Jersey Shore" cast tell TMZ ... the cast does NOT know they are scheduled to shoot the next season of the show ASAP -- and it could mean HUGE problems for the future of the show.

According to our sources, the cast hasn't been told the plan is to shoot season five right after they are done shooting four -- even though MTV announced it yesterday. We're told 495 Productions will break the news either today or tomorrow.

Our sources say the cast was originally told the next season of the show would shoot in August. As a result, we're told the cast members booked club appearances for July -- and those are HUGE money makers.

According to our sources, the cast will leave Italy in late June and go straight to Seaside Heights -- which is a problem ... since no one packed enough clothing.

We're told the cast would rather take a break and NOT go straight into shooting. If MTV and 495 don't budge ... our sources say the cast could ban together like they did last year and stage a revolt.

I've never seen the show, but I have the feeling that Season 5 isn't the only thing they are "in the dark" about.

So...let em revolt, maybe we can get some new cast members and then when everyone forgets them or realizes they are talentless, they will have to get real jobs. J WOWW working the pools at a rundown Nevada bar of course. And snooki, well going back to be being a loud fat skank that she is.

Strong rumor that the cast will be paid in the neighborhood of 100k per episode for Season 5.
The Network needs these Idiots to help pay the electric bills and will not mess with them.

The only reason why TMZ posts so much info about this stupid show is because MTV is paying them to and they (TMZ) are also being paid to promote the VMA's this weekend, just saw the ads so it totally makes sense because this article isn't really any news at all.

I agree with the cast. They should ban together and never shoot another scene. In fact, they should quit doing this seasons shoot, buy houses in Italy and never come back to the USA. And if I could be so bold as to add, they could do a new pilot episode where they put all these imbeciles on a small paddle boat with limited food and water, and film them as they try to paddle across the ocean and try to make it back to the great US of A. And if my calculation are correct, they will all die a horrible death at sea. Now that's something I'd pay to watch!

I'm surprised TMZ doesn't smell BS when it comes to this clearly "planted" story. There's no way the cast is "in the dark" about this decision, it's been all over every entertainment blog for 2 days. Even though they're in another country, at the very least their reps would know about it (and with texting/FB/etc., I'm sure their friends have messaged them about it, too). And the cast revolt may have been real after season 1, but I HIGHLY doubt the network didn't protect itself in some way contractually after that one to ensure the cast wouldn't take the show hostage every year as it's been reported.

It was fun watching Paulie D, the sitch & Vinny trying to get laid & pull tail & grenades & road dogs & stuff but now it shifted to all about the chicks trying to find love & then the last half of season 2's episodes & all of season 3 just became that meat head Ronnie & Sammie the most boring bitch on TV show. What a yawner they turned Jersey Shore into. If the Italy season has more of that Ron & Sammie crap then no reason to do season 5. Also what's up with JWOW. Great t i t s but the whole time she has had a boyfriend!? And the new pig Deeana is so fat & gross. Snookie is cute for a fattie.
