MTV Phasing out Snooki and The Situation, Looking For New Talent
Rucuss staffMarch 24, 2012
Jersey Shore producers want to phase two of their biggest stars off the show.
Since Snooki is pregnant and The Situation is in rehab, the producers on the show want to bring in new talent. They don’t want the show to lose its sex-crazed alcohol-fueled edge, TMZ reports. Producers want new and wilder castmates.
MTV released a statement that the entire cast would be back for a sixth season this summer. But that was before The Situation announced he was in rehab for substance abuse. 495 productions plans to limit Snooki and The Situation’s roles on the new season, giving new cast members more screen time instead.
Sources close to 495 productions told TMZ they desperately want to keep things fresh on the show. Adding new castmates will help transition the show into a new generation. The show begins filming this summer.
