Viacom’s youth-focused network MTV has commissioned SallyAnn Salsano and her 495 Productions to develop a new installment of the pop culture phenomenon Jersey Shore.

Scheduled to premiere in 2018, Jersey Shore Family Vacation will follow the majority of the original Shore housemates as they take a holiday together.

Featured in the installment will be Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio,” Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

Executive producers for Jersey Shore Family Vacation are 495 Productions’ Salsano, and MTV’s Nina L. Diaz and Jackie French.

Jersey Shore‘s revival follows last month’s news that MTV would be breathing life into the renowned unscripted franchise with the greenlight of MTV Floribama Shore, featuring a new cast of twenty-somethings and set in the Florida Panhandle along the beach that stretches to Alabama.

The series premiered Monday night (Nov. 27) at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

The Jersey Shore franchise has spun off a number of global successes for MTV, including Geordie Shore in the UK, Gandia Shore in Spain, Warsaw Shore in Poland, Acapulco Shore in Mexico and Super Shore.

The series stems from Salsano’s recently inked exclusive partnership with American media conglomerate Viacom, her seventh overall deal with the company.

In addition to MTV’s Jersey Shore, her FremantleMedia-owned 495 Productions has developed VH1′s Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner, MTV’s Snooki & JWOWW, Spike’s Tattoo Nightmares and Tattoo Nightmares Miami, and CMT’s Party Down South
