MTV gets ready for fist pumps and baby bumps, with the announcement of a sixth season of Jersey Shore. Production is set to begin Summer 2012 in Seaside Heights, NJ. America's favorite housemates will all return to their home-away-from-home, and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory...as their lives outside the Shore take off in exciting new directions. While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same.

In its fifth season, Jersey Shore is once again the #1 2012 cable series among P12-34, delivering 9 of the top 15 cable telecasts of 2012 to date. Adding in its incredible DVR playback, season five averaged a 7.4 P12-34 rating and 7.9 million total viewers.

Tune-in for Jersey Shore: The Reunion this Thursday, March 22 at 10:00 p.m. ET, when all the drama from the past season comes to a head, as the cast members confront each other face to face.

Fans will still be able to get their Jersey Shore fix, when Pauly Del Vecchio steps out of the Shore house and into the spotlight, with the series premiere of The Pauly D Project on Thursday, March 29 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following the much-anticipated return of Punk'd at 10:00 p.m., featuring a new celebrity host each week.
