Jersey Shore cast has not been fired, alas

The cast of Jersey Shore is not being replaced for the third season; instead, casting producers were looking for cast members for the second season, which is currently in production.

In a profile of casting director Doron Ofir, who cast Jersey Shore and many other reality series, BlackBook reported that “Ofir is currently casting for the third season of Jersey Shore, which will feature an entirely new cast.” That’s led to items like this one: Here’s the Situation: ‘tJersey Shore’ cast fired.

But that’s not true. On Twitter, Ofir wrote that “Blackbook Mag got it WRONG! I am casting 4 the current season Jersey Shore not a 3rd season & not a whole new cast!” And later, he added that “outdated information is from March when the official casting call was released, ‘additional roomates.’”
