MTV to 'Jersey Shore' Cast:

Arrivederci For Good!

6/24/2011 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with "Jersey Shore" confirm with TMZ ... MTV will say goodbye for good to the current cast when they wrap Season 5.

Although some big wigs on the show denied it last week, we're told MTV wants a fresh cast of characters after they wrap Season 5 -- which begins shooting in New Jersey Monday.

Here's the thing.  MTV gets the best of both worlds.  They can keep the "Jersey Shore" machine going by growing a new crop of much cheaper stars.  And, as for the break-outs in the original cast -- including The Situation, Snooki, JWOWW and Pauly D ... the network has already signed them to spinoffs.

A scripted reality show with characters you just hate and a setting thats plane retarded. American TV at its best!

Am I the only one seriously doubting humanity after seeing this show squat down and squeeze out yet another season? Or is the depressing part the fact that people are slurping it up with a smile?

@MightyMad "To all the dummies who seems happy about the end of this cast: read the article again. MTV are bringing in new guidos to replace them, and no doubt they'll be just as, if not more, dumb than the first cast.

So, if they manage to keep just half of the ratings "JS" is pulling right now, the circle of hell will just keep going on, and on, and on..."

Lol, it's the MTV way (not that I think it's especially evil, just a side effect of having a target age group that grows up ;). It's a bit like Logan's Run.

How long before MTV decides to put Jersey Shore in the Real World/Road Rules Challenge?

Whelp, I never watched the show. My wife told me that she was totally embarrassed for her entire State of New Jersey and that it made her feel awful that America would think that the way these people act is how all persons from her state act. I'm personally glad to hear that they are done with this crew, and think they have had way more than their 15 mins of fame. -- So as you would say Forgetta About Dit..

MTV should sign Antonella Barba from American Idol fame. Antonella is from Jersey and she's a hottie!
