Snooki, JWoww and the rest of the gang are set to film the new season in Italy, but they prefer to make the trip a vacation rather than an extended stay.
Snooki, JWoww, The Situation and DJ Pauly D will be back for new episodes of "Jersey Shore". Reports say the entire cast of the reality show, including the foursome, have signed for season 4. "Everybody signed last night," a source close to the production tells E! News.
On what made the cast wait for a while before agreeing to seal the deal, the source explains, "They all knew they were going to sign, it was just a matter of fine details. They all wanted to make it work - if things were all set up over there, then they would have signed sooner." Meanwhile, TMZ says they are "very pleased with the outcome."
Now that all eight cast members have finalized their contracts, they are set to head to Italy to film the fourth season. But as reported before, the production has been postponed and they will only start the production in May.
"They didn't have a house. They were going to shoot in one city, and then that didn't work out, so now they're scouting another city," E!'s source continues. Also, it is said that a detail in the contract mentions the trip to Italy will be made a vacation instead of an extended stay because the guidos prefer to live in their own homebase. Thus, they will shoot the rest of the season back in Seaside Heights.
