It's the end of an era for "Jersey Shore." After six seasons full of partying and fighting, the gang will bid their final farewell when the final episode airs on Thursday, December 20. For those that have been loyal viewers, parting ways with the eight roommates might be a tough pill to swallow. After all, what will we do without Snooki and Deena getting sloshed on the boardwalk, or MVP kicking game at the bars? While it's certainly sad that the show is ending, fans won't be without the "Jersey Shore" gang for very long. Here is a look at just a few of the things that the cast has on the horizon.
They have more reality shows
MTV has made these people famous, so it's not surprising that several of them are still attached to the network. Snooki and JWoww will return for the second season of their own reality series, appropriately titled "Snooki & JWoww." The new season will begin on January 8, and will feature scenes with little baby Lorenzo. Meanwhile, Vinny is launching his own talk show on the network. "The Show With Vinny" will feature the reality star inviting celebs to hang out with his family, including his wild Uncle Nino. And while "The Pauly D Project" might not see a second season, you can bet that more "Jersey Shore" spinoffs will surface.
They have other entertainment plans
As Pauly D has hinted, he and his roommates have plenty of offers to choose from. While Pauly has a successful DJ career and is planning the release of his own album, the rest of cast has big plans for the future, as well. Several stars, including Mike and Ronnie, have expressed a desire to shift from reality stars to actors. Meanwhile, JWoww is interested in going behind the camera and becoming a producer. As for Snooki? Everyone's favorite meatball is hoping to land a legitimate talk show one day soon. "I want like a late-night talk show," she recently said. "So I can talk about anything and get raunchy and you know just like have fun, kind of like a 'Chelsea Lately' kind of show."
They're all branding
The "Jersey Shore" stars have already endorsed a number of products, and plenty more are in the works. Ronnie is coming out with his own liquor, Deena is releasing hair products, and Sammi will soon debut her own fitness attire. Meanwhile, Mike recently added to his extensive product list by releasing his own comic book. Don't expect the "Jersey Shore" gang to hop off of the branding bandwagon any time soon.
