While today is a somber day for fans of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, as tonight is the finale episode of season two, there is some good news for fans of the franchise.

A mere few hours before the airing of the finale episode- in which fans will get to see what happens when Ron Magro’s girlfriend, Jen Harley, calls and details a horrific robbery she was the victim of- MTV has gone ahead and announced that the successful spin off of Jersey Shore will be returning for a third season.

The return of Jersey Shore has been a HUGE success for MTV, as the show has placed among the upper echelon of the top non-scripted shows on television period. Due to this, ratings have also grown for MTV as a network, so it’s a win on all fronts.

Recently, cast members from Jersey Shore: Family Vacation shared news that Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is #8 in the top shows watched on demand, counting both scripted and non-scripted series. This is clearly a big deal, as other shows mentioned in that arena include This Is Us and Game of Thrones.

With how successful Jersey Shore: Family Vacation has been, something tells us this won’t be the last season we will be seeing of the show and that it will be on MTV for quite some time. Long live Jersey!
