Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is getting set to expand its family.
In our very first look at the third season of this MTV revival, the cable network tells fans to speak now…
… or forever pump your fist.
This is a reference to Mike Sorrentino’s wedding, which took place in late October and which will be a focal point of at least the new season premiere.
“Oh yeah, weddings yeah!” Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio enthusiastically and hilariously declares in this trailer.
Meanwhile, a tuxedo-clad The Situation poses with his dapper groomsmen in the promo — while Snooki and Jenni Farley throw petals down the aisle and gush over the bride.
There’s no footage here of Lauren Pesce herself, but there’s a whole lot of excitement flowing around and around between the veteran colleagues and close friends.
At one point, Mike rides a horse. At another, Snooki screams loudly on a boat.
“I believe it’s too late to turn back now,” Mike says about getting hitched, which he did just a few weeks before going to jail for tax evasion.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is a spinoff of the original Jersey Shore, a series that ran from 2009 through 2012.
It catches up with he original Seaside Heights cast a decade after we first met them as a bunch of wild and crazy party-goers and drama-creators.
They still stir up plenty of the latter, but most of the stars are now married and/or have their own children, with Snooki having just given birth to a boy.
Who ever would have thought just a few years back, right?
As for the upcoming third season?
Delvecchio, Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Snooki, Sorrentino, Angelina Pivarnick and Deena Nicole Cortese will all return for another go-around.
It sounds as if we’ll also see a lot of Ronnie’s violent occasional girlfriend, Jen Harley, despite her recent arrest.
Season 3 will also give us a glimpse at how the roommates deal with Sorrentino’s jail sentencing and his subsequent time served behind bars.
Reads the official press release:
The roommates may be back, but a lot has changed, as the squad rallies around Mike, who’s facing prison time and planning a wedding.
At the same time, Deena’s about to give birth, Jenni’s contemplating divorce, Ronnie’s fed up with all the jokes at his expense, and Pauly can’t resist just one wedding prank.
Through the challenges and fears, pranks and surprise wedding guests, it’s the humor that keeps this group together and proves that facing life’s twists and turns is easier with friends.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation returns on July 11 at 8/7c on MTV.
