‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’: Should Season 7 Be the End of MTV’s Greatest Reality TV Series Ever?

<p id=”par-1_38″>It was a novel idea for MTV to reunite the cast of <em>Jersey Shore</em> in 2018 for a spinoff series, <em><a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/tag/jersey-shore-family-vacation/”>Jersey Shore: Family Vacation</a></em>. Now, six years and <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/jersey-shore-family-vacation-everything-need-know-about-dramatic-season-7.html/”>seven seasons</a> later, this is why the series should end.</p>

<h2 id=”h-here-s-why-it-may-be-time-for-jersey-shore-family-vacation-to-end”>Here’s why it may be time for ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ to end</h2>

<p id=”par-2_32″><em>Jersey Shore: Family Vacation</em> reunited the beloved cast of the original MTV juggernaut for the first time in six years. The idea was exciting, and catching up with the cast was entertaining.</p>

<p id=”par-3_34″>However, as with any reality television series, <em>JSFV</em> relies on storylines to entertain viewers. Season 6 delivered just what fans wanted: a fresh storyline celebrating Sammi Giancola’s return for the first time since 2012.</p>

<p id=”par-4_45″>Giancola’s hotly anticipated return helped push <em>Jersey Shore: Family Vacation</em>‘s ratings through the roof.<a href=”https://deadline.com/2023/08/jersey-shore-family-vacation-season-6-ratings-sammi-sweetheart-giancola-return-1235456754/”> Deadline</a> reported her debut episode drove MTV’s highest Thursday primetime share in more than two years, and it was the best season premiere for the series in more than four years. </p>

<p id=”par-5_44″>However, before Giancola’s return, the series based its storylines around Angelina Pivarnick, who has taken the mantle as <em>JSFV</em>‘s most dramatic cast member. Her conflicts with Jenni Farley, Deena Cortese, Mike Sorrentino, and Nicole Polizzi are legendary and continued throughout the series’ six seasons.</p>

<p id=”par-6_34″>But many fans grew tired of the constant bickering between grown adults and their own families. Therefore, Giancola’s return allowed the series a new reason for viewers to tune in that wasn’t just drama.</p>

<p id=”par-7_56″>Added to her return was a tease of Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s long-promised apology to his former roommates, lighting up a bottle for the series. Season 7 promises the first time Giancola and Ortiz-Magro will be in the same room for over a decade, giving long-time viewers another reason to tune in, but will they get their payoff?</p>

<p id=”par-8_30″><em>Jersey Shore: Family Vacation</em> fans understand how important it is for the series not to tease a reunion between Sammi Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. Season 7 has to pull through.</p>

<p id=”par-9_39″>But there is a real fear of the entire reunion being anti-climactic. Teasers for the new season show Giancola and Ortiz-Magro facing one another for the first time since their <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/jersey-shore-family-vacation-sammi-giancola-put-past-behind-her-this-time-will-be-different.html/”>tumultuous six-year romantic relationship</a> ended for good in 2014.</p>

<p id=”par-10_34″>However, beyond Giancola’s and Ortiz-Magro’s reunion, the only reason to tune in is the promise of returning to some iconic moments from the original series. These clips were teased in the new season’s trailer.</p>

<p id=”par-11_44″>Nicole Polizzi will relive her infamous “Where’s the beach?” moment when the cast returns to Seaside Heights. Also, Paul DelVecchio is seen recreating an iconic season 4 character with Vinny Guadagnino. Louie and Tony return, the guidos of “Fist pump, push up, Chapstick” fame.</p>

<p id=”par-12_32″>But, other than the nostalgia factor of the series, is all of this a reason to tune in? Or should the series go out on top, with the entire cast on board?</p>
