NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — “Jersey Shore” is headed to the Motherland.

The popular MTV reality TV series starring a group of hard-partying Italian-Americans will film its fourth season in Italy, the network said Tuesday.

“While the stateside ‘Jersey Shore’ locales have become iconic for our audience, it’s really the constantly evolving dynamic amongst the cast that keeps them coming back each season,” MTV programming vice president Chris Linn said. “Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us.”

The ongoing third season, filmed last summer, features the ongoing feud between Jenni “J-Woww” Farley and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, as well as the introduction of new cast member Deena Nicole Cortese, the wild “partner in crime” of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who has the hots for Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

The fourth season is set to premiere later this year.

The first and third season are set in Seaside Heights, N.J., and the second season sent the fist-pumping pals to Miami.

    I love how everyone slams the jersey shore and its cast but you obviously take time out to watch them and even worse look for sites like this to comment about them. They must be doing something right to be so popular. personally i think their histarical. i’d act crazy for all that money and a chance to travel the world. and most of you would to…

    Wonder if the Pope is going to greet them?

    Yep….righty-o Bob. Do you work in Hollywood? I can assure you that Hollywood is no longer an ethnocentric place of power. These people knew what they were getting into and they jumped at the chance. Your racist ramblings are ridiculous. Just because you were brought up wrong (read: Your parents should have killed themselves–slowly) doesn’t mean you’re ignorant thoughts are correct.

    No…Please not Italy….Keep them in NJ. I am Italian/American & the only ones I think may have any class are Vinny or Pauli. The girls are all hot messes (orange color BTW). I hate that these people have become famous for being drunk & disorderly & acting like hoes. I agree with BMX31red maybe they’ll run into some real guidos who will whack them…..Madone!!!!!!

    They are not representative of Italian Americans. They represent all that is loathsome in people in general. They are barely literate, low life embarrassments to their parents, their tribes and any culture on which they are inflicted. And they will do nothing but tarnish our country’s image abroad.

      AGREED !!!!!! This show is the lowest piece of trash to ever have hit the airwaves. I have friends that actually watch this garbage – when they told me this, I was truly embarrassed for them. I can never look at them the same way again.
