"MTV gets ready for fist pumps and baby bumps," the statement begins, adding that production is set to start this summer at the infamous abode in Seaside Heights, NJ. "America's favorite housemates will all return to their home-away-from-home, and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory . . .as their lives outside the "Shore" take off in exciting new directions."
It's unclear whether Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, 22, will actually live with her six pals in the house. She first broke new exclusively to Us Weekly that she was pregnant with her first child -- and engaged to the daddy-to-be, Jionni LaValle.
"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," MTV added.
