MTV is pulling out all the stops for the final season of Jersey Shore. As well they should! The cast has already been spotted repeatedly filming in Seaside long after the summer was over, but Examiner reports that the actual reunion special may be filmed live.

As Jersey Shore fans know, the annual reunion special often provokes some of the season’s juiciest moments and reveals unspoken resentments and feuds. At the Season 5 reunion (Season 5, Episode 12: “Reunion”) earlier this year, Snooki and The Situation were on such bad terms that Mike left the studio altogether and had to be coaxed back inside by JWOWW. Things between them have never been the same.

As Examiner reports, “Multiple sources confirm the Jersey Shore Season 6 reunion will actually be a live MTV special to air following the season and series finale later this year.” That would suggest that all the segments the cast has been shooting in Seaside recently are tied to the episodes currently airing or about to air.

A live reunion special would most likely draw a much larger audience, since the conflicts will be occurring in real time. Also, there won’t be any opportunities for spoilers ahead of time.

Catch the next new episode of Jersey Shore on Thursday, October 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
