'Jersey Shore' Recast Looming After Season 5: Report

Jersey ShoreA 'Jersey Shore' without Snooki and the gang? Say it ain't so!

According to reports, MTV plans to recast the now infamous reality show after the original crew films one final season in Seaside Heights this summer.

"After this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them," a source tells Us Weekly.

The insider goes on to cite the cast's high salaries and outside commitments as reasons to move on with a new group -- not to mention the publicity and paparazzi constantly surrounding them. The new cast will be "a lot cheaper," but that the current stars "will leave on a high note."

With each passing season, the 'Jersey Shore' cast holds out for a bigger pay raise, arguing they bring in the big bucks from sponsorship deals and club appearances they can't do while filming for MTV.

The "core group" -- presumably Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio -- reportedly earned around $100,000 per episode to film Season 4 in Florence, Italy, this spring.

While salary agreements were supposedly hashed out for Season 5, it seems like MTV got frustrated with the cast's high demands and has decided to start over with a new fist-pumping, hair-bumping group for next summer.

We can only imagine what new nicknames and catchphrases we'll see in Season 6.

I have enjoyed the show in the BEGINING seasons BUT enough is enough they are not kids anymore they are almost thrity now. its sad that they are not growing, is that all their life is gtl and bars everynight? grow up PLEASE!And the first show of season five made me sick with the sitch and the unit that is soo sad if that was not scripted by mtv that is what snitchs do, not people who supposedly love each other like family besides all jioni has to do is watch the last season and he would knkow the truth. I think it is time to either end or put new kids on

they're not gonna cancel this show, if they re-cast it won't do well either. the first episode will get high ratings, but it'll be just like "2 and a half men". mtv needs jersey shore to make bank, and jersey shore needs the cast to capture high ratings. like them or not, this is the most successful show on MTV, you can take them anywhere and people will keep watching. all the people who hate on the show, are still watching. no matter if it's scripted or fake, there's something about that group that keeps people watching. if they do spin-offs, again i doubt it'll be good. you need that core group together, even if they all don't mingle right. you still need them there to make the show work. obviously ronnie, vinny, sammi, and deena aren't the most popular, but i still think they need ronnie, vinny, and sam. i'd rather have angelina back, just for the drama, just cuz deena is basically snooki and like someone said. if they recast, it'll be a bunch of kids mimicking the group.

If you put new people on they will just try to imitate snookie or pauly etc. It will not be real at all..Its not gonna fly..Why not just let season 5 be the last season and let it be..

well pauly D motto is to not to get into any situations, he's a neutral, so if he backs up Mike he will get seriously burned. Also he knows that Mike is probably wrong and that's what is holding him back.

If this happens, I'm sure a lot of people as well as myself, will never watch Jersey Shore again... these fake ass wanna be's will never be the same or ever compare to the cast now so if you change the cast, you might as well say goodbye to the Jersey Shore...

It's quite funny that over half of you commenting on here are talking trash about the show and the cast but if you really despise the show that much why are you even reading about it?

Does anybody remember when there was actually MUSIC on MTV? I wish they would get rid of this crap and return to what they did best.
