"MTV is pleased that the Jersey Shore cast are returning to Seaside Heights to continue production on Season 3," MTV said in a statement. "Not only have they become a part of the MTV family, but fans worldwide have fallen in love with them.”

Top draws Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino were said to be demanding about $30,000 per episode, up from the $10,000 they were offered to shoot Season 2 in Miami, according to E! online.
Both cast members reportedly inked more lucrative deals this week to stay with the franchise, though it is unclear how much they were offered.
Also unknown is how much MTV offered other members of the “Shore” clan.
