"Jersey Shore" to Ditch Original Cast Next Season

| by

Could this be the end of Snooki?

According to reports, producers of the ‘Jersey Shore’ are planning on recasting the MTV hit after the original guido crew wraps up filming this summer.

A source tells Us Weekly, “After this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them.”

Apparently, the new cast will be a lot cheaper and the current group will now be free to pursue other endeavors, such as spin offs and commercials.

After each season ends, the original cast seems to hold out for more money so at this point MTV is ready to move on and start fresh.

Reportedly Snooki, Jwoww, The Situation and Pauly D earned around $100,000 per episode to film Season 4 in Italy.

Although this is the end for the original Jersey Shore, don’t you fret Jersey fans; the cast won’t be falling into obscurity just yet.

Many of the original cast (Snooki, Jwoww, Pauly D and The Situation) have already signed on to do their own spinoffs.

As for Ronny, Deena, Sam and Vinny, well, we will just have to see.
