Can you believe that it’s been five whole years since we last saw any new footage from Jersey Shore?
Sure, we’ve been keeping up with several of the cast members in that time — we know all about The Situation’s legal trouble and Snooki and J-Woww’s family life.
But nothing can compare to what goes down when that special, special group of people get together for a summer in Seaside Heights.
It was just such an iconic moment in American history, you know?
Like, most people can tell you exactly where they were and what they were doing the moment they found out that Snooki got arrested for being drunk on the beach.
But while Jersey Shore signified such a special time in reality television, that time has passed.
Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t revisit the magic!
On August 20th — so soon! — E! is airing a special called Road Trip Reunion: Return to the Jersey Shore.
In the special, Snooki, The Situation, J-Woww, Pauly D, and Sammi Sweetheart will gather together to take a road trip down to their old stomping grounds.
Which means that Ronnie, Deena, and Vinny won’t be there — and Angelina, obviously.
Their absence will be noticeable, we’re sure, but with Snooki there, you can’t really go wrong.
And, as you can see in this brand new footage from the special, there’s plenty of drama to go around.
In the clip, we see The Situation pull up to a house with Snooki in the passenger seat — an interesting move, considering their history — and Pauly D greeting them.
“Cabs here!” The Sitch yells, just like the good old days.
Pauly, bless his heart, then takes some time to discuss the GTL lifestyle and what that looks like in 2017.
If you’re curious, he has an in-home gym, he spray tans instead of getting in a tanning bed, and he sends his laundry out to have someone else do it for him.
He also discusses his iconic hairstyle, which, in case you haven’t noticed, hasn’t changed a bit.
The drama comes when Pauly goes to greet his former co-stars. He’s just as happy as ever, and we see him giving The Situation a hug.
But then, in one of those classic reality show moments, Sitch explains to the camera that “Pauly D was my boy in the house,” but “it’s been five years, we haven’t spoken.”
It’s going down! You can just smell that good ol’ Jersey Shore drama a-brewin’, can’t you?!
