A little while back we found out that Jenny AKA JWOWW had big plans to film her BFF’s labor and delivery. But now it’s looking like that event (at least in part) will be televised. The Jersey Shore spin-off show Snooki & JWOWW has just been renewed for a second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. So everyone who was panicking about losing the two BFFs– or even enjoying the show in small doses (which I occiasionally do)– rest assured that your girls are comin’ back. Oh, and so is The Jersey Shore. Deets and the premiere date for the final season of Seaside highs (and lows), inside.
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
The cable network on Friday renewed Snooki & JWoww for a second season and set an October premiere date for Jersey Shore’s sixth season.
MTV’s Jersey Shore spinoff premiered in June to 2.4 million viewers, a far cry from the network’s flagship series and also down from the network’s second spinoff, The Pauly D Project, which collected 2.9 million viewers in its plum post-Punk’d time slot in March. The fifth season of Jersey Shore opened to 7.6 million viewers in January.
“MTV has been a beacon for each young generation throughout its history, and this millennial generation is no different,” the network’s head of programmingDavid Janollari said. “Our distinctive blend of reality and scripted shows gives voice to the excitement and possibilities that frame their everyday lives. We strive to reflect their hopes, dreams and struggles, with a mix of humor, authentic voices and engaging stories that you can’t find anywhere else on TV.”
The sixth and rumored final season of Jersey Shore, meanwhile, will return at 10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4.

So that answers the inevitable question: ‘Are people still watching these shows?‘ Yes, apparently millions. And I’m one of them-ish. Judge me if you will!
Now that Snooki’s got her slot locked in, I can’t help but be curious about how the show will function in it’s second season. If baby Lorenzo has arrived by the time they start filming, will Snooki & JWOWW still be roomies? Or will we watch them entering a new stage of their lives (mainly Snooki’s) separately, but as friends? And most importantly, when will Snooki sleep??? I’m a huuuge fan of new Moms sleeping! Although, Snooki’s got a good crew around her– between Papa Jionni and her parents, I think she’ll be able to snag a nap or two.
Who’s watching??? Dezden? Where you at?
