It has been just like old times with Jersey Shore back on television. The beloved cast recently returned to MTV in Jersey Shore: Family Vacation and fans have once again been able to watch the guidos and guidettes get drunk and make terrible decisions. It’s almost as if they never left.
Snooki, DJ Pauly D, JWoww, The Situation, Deena, Vinny, and Ronnie have managed to entertain fans once again, but there has been one thing missing – the presence of Sammi Giancola. With Ronnie finding himself in the middle of a cheating scandal, could we see the return of Sammi Sweetheart?
Sammi has explained at length why she decided not to return the show. She says that she is not the same person she was at 22, and now she is at a different place in her life and focusing on her businesses and her relationship. She opted out of the show this time around because she wanted “to avoid potentially toxic situations.”
And, it looks like she made the right call. Sammi’s ex, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro (the main reason Sammi stayed away) is still a mess. In the most recent episode, fans saw Ronnie cheat on his then-pregnant girlfriend, and he also admitted that he still has feelings for Sammi.
In a confessional, Deena said that Ronnie talks about Sammi all the time, and he used to call his ex on blocked numbers and be “really weird.” She went on to reveal that Sammi feared that if she came back to the show, Ronnie would get drunk and spiral and try to get back with her.
But, in a new interview with the cast, it sounds like there is a chance Sammi will make an appearance next season. Vinny said there is always a chance, and then Pauly D took it even further by saying he can almost bet on it because of all the buzz around their new show.
JWoww agreed with Pauly D because Sammi will always be a part of the group and they will always mention her, so it would make sense for Sammi to come back and speak her own truth.

Everyone nodded in agreement with JWoww except for Deena. She doesn’t think Sammi will come back because she’s “just not into it anymore.”
Since we know the reasons why she didn’t come back for Family Vacation – and her ex’s behavior proved her to be right – it would be a surprise if Sammi Giancola did return for season two. But, then again, you never know what will happen.
New episodes of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation air Thursday nights on MTV.
