Last week, MTV confirmed that they are bringing Jersey Shore back for Season 6. The network says it plans to stick with the original cast, though Snooki, who will be heavily pregnant, will probably not be living in the house. The Situation, who is currently in rehab, claimed via Twitter that he will still be returning.
However, TMZ now reports that 495 Productions, the production company behind Jersey Shore, wants to shake up the cast because they're afraid Snooki and Sitch's new, sober ways won't make for good TV.
According to TMZ's sources, the production company is currently looking for new cast members. Apparently their plan is to "limit" Snooki and Sitch's parts next season, and they hope that bringing new guidos into the mix will help ease the potential transition to a whole new cast in the future.
When we polled our readers, the overwhelming majority said they'd still want to watch the show with sober Sitch and Snooki, so we wonder if this move is really as necessary as 495 Productions thinks it is.
