After wrapping up shooting for Season 4 in Italy - and is scheduled to premiere on MTV 08/04/11 - US Weekly reports the Guidos & Guidettes are getting ready to shoot their final season next month back in Seaside Heights, NJ.
Reason for the recasting? Perhaps the gang has gotten too classy after their adventures overseas...ha. By bringing in a new cast, the show would be much cheaper to produce.
Furthermore, the current cast of our favorite guilty pleasure have become household names (whether we like to admit it or not); thus, their paychecks of $100,000 were not easy to shell out. Plus, the producers of the show wanted to give the gang freedom to explore other opportunities to expand their..."careers". Why drink and be stupid and not get paid for it, right?
So what's coming up next for the "hard-working" party people? Pauly D, as well as Snooki & J-WOWW have already made plans for spin-offs, both sure to be hits with the audience. As for the others, more than likely they'll all remain in the spotlight for a good while. Or until we get our new batch of fist-pumping troublemakers.
