'Jersey Shore' cast to return to NJ

The cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore" will return to the Garden State to tape the fifth season of the reality series.

MTV's parent company, Viacom, has announced that production will begin in Seaside Heights sometime in June.

The fourth season, which was taped in Florence, Italy, is scheduled to premiere Aug. 4.

Italian police recently revoked Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's international driver's license after the "Jersey Shore" star was in a fender-bender with a police car.
