MTV officially announced a reboot of Jersey Shore, one of its most popular reality TV shows, with a brand new cast. However, the show’s original faces publicly shared that they are not on board with the idea of a revival.

Original cast members Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, DJ Pauly D, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Cortese and Angelina Pivarnick all shared a joint statement on Twitter with the hashtag #WeAreJerseyShore, stating that they do not approve of a show that will “exploit” their origins and that fans should watch their ongoing spinoff:

“As a cast that took a chance with a network in need, we put our most vulnerable moments on television for the world to see,” the statement begins. “We gave our all over the past 13 years, became a family and continue to open our lives to the world. So please understand that we are not in support of a version that will exploit our original show, our hard work and authenticity to gain viewers.

Don’t forget to tune into an all-new season of ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation.’”

The network confirmed the reboot with a press release that read, “It’s been 13 years since the iconic cast of Jersey Shore fist-pumped their way into our lives and stole our hearts. Now, the time-honored tradition continues with a new group of roommates moving into their own Shore house. They may have traded their poofs for plumped pouts and UV rays for spray tans, but when things heat up in Jersey, the Shore is still the place to be to make memories all summer long.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, Riverdale is coming to an end after seven seasons.
