Jersey Shore Family Vacation season 2 filming begins in Las Vegas

Jersey Shore Family Vacation filmingJersey Shore Family Vacation season 2 filming is already happening, and to go along with that, the producers have singled out a location that should feel very familiar to some cast members: Las Vegas.

Most of the cast has already been spotted in Sin City working on the new season, which will feature many of the familiar faces you’ve come to see over the years. We haven’t gotten any official word on any cast changes as of yet (is Sammi coming back? Is Angelina re-joining the cast?), but this season could premiere later this year based on the timing of filming.

The Las Vegas location is somewhat of a surprise given that Pauly D and Ronnie already live in the area, so it’s not like it’s uncharted territory for some of the cast. They’ve all probably been there on multiple occasions already. Beyond just that, where do you send the cast other than nightclubs? In season 1 of Family Vacation you did at least have the beach as another possible setting.

In terms of scheduling, there is one interesting wrinkle that could come up due to sentencing in The Situation’s tax fraud case, which is scheduled to happen at some point later this month. That could have an impact on production, or at least for his particular story in it. Through much of season 1, we saw a lot of time spent with Mike talking about how he is a changed man and precisely how different he is from the person he was in the past.

Alas, there have been no sightings of Angelina just yet — a bummer for those who wanted to see her be a part of the show after her return during this past Family Vacation season. We did wonder at the time if that was meant as some sort of audition so that she could be a larger part in an upcoming second season and with the cast all getting along now, why not bring her back if Sammi still doesn’t want to return?
