LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Jersey Shore" is headed to the Motherland.

The popular MTV reality TV series starring a group of hard-partying Italian-Americans will film its fourth season in Italy, the network said Tuesday.

"While the stateside 'Jersey Shore' locales have become iconic for our audience, it's really the constantly evolving dynamic amongst the cast that keeps them coming back each season," MTV programming vice president Chris Linn said. "Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us."

The ongoing third season, filmed last summer, features the ongoing feud between Jenni "J-Woww" Farley and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, as well as the introduction of new cast member Deena Nicole Cortese, the wild "partner in crime" of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi.

The cast also includes Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

The fourth season is set to premiere later this year.

The first and third season are set in Seaside Heights, N.J., and the second season sent the fist-pumping pals to Miami.
