Back in 2009, MTV struck gold in America when they decided to take a look into the lives of several big personalities hailing from New Jersey, bringing them all to the small screen and forcing them to live in the same house, in a reality show like none we'd ever seen before.

Whilst cast member Angelina Pivarnick didn't manage to control her temper long enough to stay for the entire original run, the show did make stars out of Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino, Jenni 'Jwoww' Farley, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, Paul 'Pauly D' DelVecchio and late arrival, Deena Nicole Cortese.

With the show now in their rear-view mirrors, many of those stars have made successful careers out of the opportunity the series handed them, but it looks like they've been pining to get back together, as all but one will return for a new series on MTV next year, called 'Jersey Shore Family Vacation'.

Whilst Sammi 'Sweetheart' won't be returning, everybody else is making a comeback to share their lives with everybody watching at home one more time. One reason she may be absent could be because of the inclusion of her on-off ex-partner Ronnie, with whom she definitively split from back in 2014. Sammi hasn't officially confirmed why she's decided not to make a return just yet, however.

Following the success of 'Jersey Shore', a number of reality shows have spawned off the back of it all across the globe, such as MTV UK's hit series 'Geordie Shore' and new American show, 'Floribama Shore'. None however have ever touched the incredible heights that 'Jersey Shore' rose to. It's going to be very interesting to see the cast back together once again, and we can't wait!
