Those wild and crazy kids are coming back!
God save us all.
The cast from "The Jersey Shore" appear to be heading back to the shore and a TV near you. The long rumored docuseries reuniting the gang appears to have gotten a green light, according to castmember Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, who shared on social media the group would reunite on Aug. 20 on E!
The Hollywood Reporter previously reported the docuseries would be titled "Reunion Road Trip," and be an unscripted entry attempting to "capture an epic show reunion as the cast drives down memory lane, making familiar stops along the way — sharing stories, revisiting hot spots and catching up on each other's current lives."
"The Jersey Shore" originally ran on MTV from 2009-2012 starring Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jennifer "JWoww" Farley, Samantha Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole "Snookie" Polizzi and Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino. Angelina Pivarnick and Deena Nicole Cortese were also members of the cast during the show's run.
Time has been kinder to some members of the cast than others. Polizzi and Farley wed and became mothers after the show ended while while Ortiz-Magro currently appears on another reality show "Famously Single."

In May, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed legislation inspired by Polizzi to cap what state public universities can pay speakers. Republican Assemblyman John DiMaio said he was inspired to write the legislation after Polizzi was paid $32,000 in student fees to speak at a Rutgers University student event in 2011.
The former castmember more recently in the news has been Sorrentino, who in April along with his brother pleaded not guilty to tax fraud charges after federal prosecutors said they filed fake tax returns and claimed luxury car and clothing purchases were business expenses.
