Season 7 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will reportedly drop in early August. While it has yet to be confirmed by the series, Nicole Polizzi spilled news regarding the latest season of the MTV staple on her podcast It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey.

Polizzi revealed that the new season will debut on Aug. 3, 2023. However, this places the series debut at its standard “Jerzday” slot.

The show will likely air at 8 p.m. EST. Since its debut, the Jersey Shore series of shows have, for the most part, owned that time slot on MTV.

The show’s return comes on the heels of the conclusion of All-Star Shore after an 11-episode run. The series brings international reality show stars together for a chance to win $150,000. It is narrated by Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, and its main competitor is Jersey Shore‘s Angelina Pivarnick.

In a teaser for season 7 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Sammi Giancola’s return shocks her former roommates. She arrives for a reunion alongside Angelina Pivarnick, who reportedly contacted her via DM.

The teaser picks up in the aftermath of the events of the explosive season finale, where Pivarnick remains at odds with her female castmates. The trailer promises even more drama and an apparent divide between the women.

Giancola’s return brings a shocking response from her former castmates. She appears to butt heads with and get several women to tears throughout the season after not appearing on the series for 11 years.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is also featured in the clip. Sorrentino tells Magro, “It’s not my job to tell your story,” after he expresses a want to reunite with his former roommates. Magro left the series in May 2021 to work on personal issues.
