Snooki and The Situation might be fazed on the Jersey Shore, since things are about to get pg-13 on the show with Snooki being pregnant and The Situation is in rehab…and 495 Productions might be looking for new talent! I guess the original Jersey Shore will soon be kaput.
With Snooki pregnant and The Situation getting sober, the people behind “Jersey Shore” are FREAKED the show will lose its sex-crazed alcohol-fueled edge — so they’re looking to phase the two out … in favor of newer, wilder castmates.
MTV released a statement earlier this week — following news Sitch was seeking substance abuse treatment — claiming the network expects the entire cast to return for Season 6 … but sources close to 495 Productions tell TMZ, the production company is currently looking for new talent.
According to sources, 495 desperately wants to keep things fresh — and folding in new castmates will help transition the show into a new generation … while still keeping old fans hooked.
We’re told 495 plans to limit Snooki and The Situation’s roles on the new season — giving new cast members more screen time instead.
The show is set to begin filming this summer. 495 had no comment.
