They're baaack! And they're back in Jersey.

The cast of Jersey Shore – Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio, Jenni "JWOWW" Farley, Vinnie Guadagnino, Ronnie Magro, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and new girl Deena Nicole Cortese – are returning to the beach town, Seaside Heights, N.J., where it all began.

"Last summer was crazy in the Jersey Shore but we know each other now and we're going to hit Jersey hard," Pauly D says in a new promo for season 3, which premieres Jan. 6 (10 p.m. ET) on MTV.

"I definitely think that there will be more hook-ups in Seaside," Vinnie says. "Jersey girls are a little easier."

There will also be more trouble, from the look of the promo, including a fist fight between Sammi and JWOWW, Snooki's arrest – and the sandy face-plant that proceeded it."
