‘Jersey Shore’ to hit beach again

MTV officially renews show for second season

The Situation has been resolved.

Castmates from MTV’s hit reality series “Jersey Shore” have renewed their deals and are returning for a second season, the network announced late Friday night.

Negotiations had been going on for weeks and sources say the cast demanded to have its $5,000 per episode salary doubled to $10,000. It was unclear what the final numbers were, but the cabler — minus a major hit with “The Hills” losing traction in the last year — felt it needed to make a deal in order to keep its momentum intact.

Season two will begin in summer with a 12-episode order. Production will begin shortly and, according to the MTV release, the Garden State gang “could escape the cold Northeast and find themselves in a new destination.”

After debuting Dec. 3, “Jersey Shore” went on to become a pop culture moment among the 12-34 set and finished the season on Jan. 21 with 4.8 million viewers.

Net is running an encore of the entire first season on Feb. 7. Episodes will begin running in the morning and conclude just before kickoff at the Super Bowl.
