Cabs are here! Well… not yet, but they will be soon enough! With Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 1 over and done with, it’s time to start thinking about when we’ll get to see our favorite GTL crew once more. Thankfully, MTV knows what’s up — they aren’t going to force fans to wait years for a comeback. In fact, Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2 starts sooner than you think. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know.

When does Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2 start?

Believe it or not, you’ll be able to “get crazy, get wild” with the familiar cast of characters in a few weeks! That’s right, MTV announced on July 26 that Jersey Shore Family Vacation will be returning to television screens on Thursday, Aug. 23. You can check out the latest full-length trailer below!

Where does Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2 take place?

As far as location for Jersey Shore Family Vacation, we’ve finally gotten some more insight with the new trailer! The cast will be starting out their Season 2 journey in Las Vegas and then heading back to Jersey. Now, according to Cinema Blend, Seaside Heights (the location of the OG shore house) flat out said no to the MTV filming permits. The town cited that they “don’t need the chaos,” which, to be fair, makes sense. 

However, based on the newest clip, it appears that the roomies are back in the house where it all began! So who knows? Maybe the borough changed their mind.

Which cast members will be on Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2?

Based on MTV’s promotion thus far, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Deena Cortese, Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Magro, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino will all be returning for Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2.

Of course, we can’t forget about the “dirty little hamster” everyone loves to hate — Angelina Pivarnick. Once again, the new trailer confirmed what we all feared (but also sort of hoped for), Angelina is back! As to whether or not she’ll be on the whole season remains to be seen. 

As far as whether or not Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola will be making an appearance on Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2, well, anything’s possible!

Sammi hasn’t commented either way, but the rest of the cast has hope she’ll resurface for Family Vacation‘s second season. “I can almost bet on that,” Pauly D told People. “For someone to say no to that this time and then all the media and everybody, all those comments… She must see them. She must want to do it. I gotta say, she must have to want to do the second one.”

Jenni agreed. “For the simple fact that she will always be a part of us and she’ll always be mentioned or brought up, at least capitalize on it,” she advised her former co-star. “Speak your own truth. Come in, fight us on whatever, or love us, or, like, be around us. It’s kinda s–t she’s not taking the opportunity.”

Here’s hoping that Season 2 will be just as wild as the first — full of Ron Ron juice, French fries, and crazy meatballs.
