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.

So much hate being written on here, yet they have HUGE ratings. Makes me wonder if this is just a guilty pleasure for all of you hating on this cast.
I live minutes away from where they shoot this show, yet I know this cast does not represent ALL of those who live in New Jersey.
I guess I'll be the first to admit that I actually watch this show. I think it's totally stupid and random. But for me it just brings back memories of being young at the Jersey Shore. Renting houses with random people and befriending them.
Going to the beach during the day and partying all night long.
But some things have changed or maybe I just wasn't involved with all the pick-up behavior this cast displays.
I'd go out dancing with all my girlfriends, have a good time, talk to the boys and go home. There was absolutely no sleeping around with strangers "for me" after a good night out.
The first season was good, second season was all about Ron and Jenny's relationship, proof that one should never fall in love at the Jersey Shore.
And now they are just too old to be going in and out of clubs, starting fights, and getting drunk. They are not in their early 20's anymore, so it no longer works.
But I'll watch when a new cast is brought in, just like I watched this cast play out their lives for us at the Jersey Shore.
If you've never been to New Jersey don't put down our state. We are for the most part a civilized society with some very wealthy, famous zip codes of our own. Alot of our residents run Wall Street, the fashion industry, and movies are shot here on a regular basis !! So everyone just get over it !!!

Finally, some fresh faces. I wonder if the new cast will be just as nuts :) Although there is no need to feel sorry for them. Most cast members will still be making bank. They either have their own show or product lines. Snooki is becoming known for her strange style of sparkle studded zebra sunglasses and Ronnie has a line of supplements!
