"While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same," an MTV rep said.

The 24-year-old Snooki confirmed at the beginning of the month that she is pregnant and engaged to boyfriend Jionni LaValle.

She and JWoww are in the middle of filming their own reality spin-off and DJ Pauly D's spin-off, "The Pauly D Project," is set to premiere March 29.

Pauly D told MTV that he is looking forward to filming another season with his "Jersey Shore" castmastes.

"I love summers on the Jersey Shore," he said. "I love it as a show, and I love it with my roommates. I wouldn't do it without [them], I gotta do it with them. I want all of them [there] and I want the Jersey Shore."

"The Jersey Shore" is set to film this summer.
