Jersey Shore remains one of the most well-known reality television shows in the history of entertainment. From 2009 to 2012, every member of the show would live in a house together in New Jersey.
Due to the insane popularity, it isn’t a surprise MTV wants to reboot the show. However, the idea of Jersey Shore 2.0 did not sit well with the original cast and they voiced against it.
As previously reported, production for Jersey Shore 2.0 was halted for mysterious reasons. According to TMZ, the show’s new cast was brought into Atlantic City to prepare for production last week. However, producers had issues finding proper people for the show.
One 2.0 aspirant was rejected after producers were alerted to some homophobic and racist social media posts from a relative. Show producers first wanted to put the cast up in the original “Jersey Shore” house, but the city rejected it after the bad reputation the first show gave Seaside Heights.
Despite the crates of camera gear being removed from the house this week, the show hasn’t been canceled. In fact, they will just use time to think whether they will return to production.
MTV has only confirmed production has been “paused.” It was also said that the statement issued by the original stars has nothing to do with the pause in production. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing story.
