Just because “Jersey Shore” is going away after its sixth and final season doesn’t mean its stars are.
In fact, the MTV franchise is spawning yet another spin-off series.
Fan favorite Vinny Guadagnino will host a hybrid talk show/reality series called “The Show With Vinny,” MTV announced Tuesday.
According to the press release, the series will “shatter the typical talk-show format by taking the biggest celebrities out of the studio and into Vinny Guadagnino’s family home in Staten Island, New York.”
The show will also feature real characters from Guadagnino’s personal life, including his mother Paula, his Uncle Nino and more.
“Vinny’s unique mix of humor, intelligence, curiosity and heart make him the perfect choice for this genre busting take on the interview format,” said Chris Linn, MTV Executive Vice President of Programming and Head of Production. “As the lives of the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast evolve, we are excited to explore new ground while still delivering the laughs and surprises that fans have come to expect from the franchise.”
No production date or launch date have been released at this time.
Vinny is the latest “Jersey Shore” cast member to secure his own spin-off show, joining “The Pauly D Project” and “Snooki and JWoww.”
