Get ready for gym, tan, maternity clothes on Jersey Shore.
Following speculation about whether or not the show would be renewed for a sixth season, all seven cast mates – including a pregnant Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi – are set to return to Seaside Heights, N.J., during this summer to begin filming, according to a press release from MTV.
"The house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory as their lives outside of the 'Shore' take off in exciting new directions," the network says.
"While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same."

Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola spent over a decade in the loving company of a "sister" – one with four legs.
Abby, a cockapoo, was like a sibling to the Jersey Shore star, but last year, doctors discovered a tumor in her stomach, and the 11-year-old pup died soon afterward.
"It was a very devastating and traumatizing experience," Giancola tells PEOPLE. "Abby was a part of my family, and it was a huge deal to say goodbye to her."
