Even before Snooki removed herself from the Jersey Shore cast by getting pregnant, the fate of the show after Season 5 was up in the air. There have long been rumors that MTV was considering ditching the entire cast for fresh blood. Has anything changed since Snooki's big announcement?

According to an MTV rep, "No decision has been made yet on a sixth season of Jersey Shore."

Recently, Snooki said she might "visit the shore" next season, which would probably only happen if the old cast returns. However, her comment seems non-committal and vague, so we don't take it as a strong indication that MTV is leaning towards keeping the originals.

Would you prefer a new cast, or would you rather the originals return, even without Snooks? Weigh in at our Facebook page.
