Well, that excitement died out pretty fast. It looks like, as of right now, MTV's Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will NOT be coming to Wildwood as speculated last week. US Weekly reported that the cast was expected to do some filming there for Season 2 after being ousted from Seaside Heights, but it appears that Wildwood is joining their NJ counterpart in refusing to let the gang film.
The Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority issued this following statement on Friday:
“While the Wildwoods, NJ embraces the opportunity to provide a beautiful seaside beach and Boardwalk location for filmmakers, TV shows and social media to film here, it does not welcome the message that the MTV show ‘Jersey Shore’ presents to its viewers. The Wildwoods’ family-friendly atmosphere, beautiful award-winning beaches, Boardwalk fun and Doo Wop ambience does not align with the show’s overall theme and message. Our resort destination is geared toward good, clean fun for families and multi-generational vacationers who enjoy our beaches, boardwalk and one-of-a-kind attractions.
Not sure what this means for the rest of the season, because it appears that almost every shore town in Jersey may be shutting them down. We'll keep you posted when we hear additional info!
