Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may be is gone but she’s not forgotten.

Nicole did participate in the filming of Season 4 of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” in a Nevada resort with the rest of the cast. The new season debuts with two episodes starting 8 p.m. EST Thursday, Nov. 19 on MTV.

The cast, and family members, decamp in a bubble at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa in Henderson, Nevada, to soothe things out after Nicole, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Cortese’s speech-gone-wrong at Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding in the end of Season 3.

Nicole was in tears when Angelina  ignored her and the roomies after the speech on the Season 3 finale.

“I’m quitting I think,” Nicole said. “I think this is it.”

That was a summation of what she had said on her “It’s Happening with Snooki and Joey” podcast in December of 2019, which aired before the season finale.

“Our show, ‘Jersey Shore,’ is about family and making fun of each other and having a good time and laughing and just knowing that it’s all in good fun,” said Polizzi on “It’s Happening.”  “Lately, everything is so serious. It’s not about a team anymore.”

Chances are Nicole will be on TV again. Her name has been floated as a possible cast member of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Showrunner Andy Cohen said it’s legit.

“It’s something to keep our eyes out for,” said Cohen on  “Live with Kelly and Ryan” in September.

Meanwhile, the cast of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” is in a state of flux. Below are five candidates who could take Nicole’s spot in the “Jersey Shore” house.

Nicole’s spot in the hearts of fans is a different matter. 

Maria Elizondo 

On the plus side, Maria is a New Jersey native. On the negative side, she doesn’t seem to have a really strong connection to the “Jersey Shore” cast despite her two seasons on “Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D and Vinny.”  Her “porn date” with Vinny Guadagnino apparently never materialized. 

Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola      

Attention Sammi, there’s a spot in the cast open. Sammi opted out of the “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” reboot in 2018 as she wanted to “avoid potentially toxic situations,” according to one of her Instagram posts. She famously had an on-again, off-again relationship with cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.

The producers didn’t seem pleased that Sammi didn’t come on board for the reboot. They produced a life-sized Sammi doll for the cast to abuse on the first episodes. There was wedding drama between Sammi and the cast over who was invited to her since COVID-postponed wedding, but that seems to have been smoothed over when Sammi recently congratulated Deena Cortese on her baby

Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley Explains Why She Is Returning for Season 4 and Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Isn’t

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi said she was done with Jersey Shore: Family Vacation before season 3 even aired. As for season 4, Jenni “JWoww” Farley will return to the show without her best friend.

After season 3, many fans thought Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley was done with ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’  

The drama at Pivarnick’s wedding divided the Jersey Shore roommates — especially the women. 

As the wedding episode aired, Farley took to Twitter to share her feelings. One tweet had many fans convinced she would not return for season 4 of the show, which wasn’t confirmed at the time. 

“I am way to ride or die to see you leave,” Farley tweeted, quoting Polizzi’s tweet about the finale. “If you’re done, I’m done. There’s no Jwoww without my Snooki.” 

Jenni ‘Jwoww’ Farley will be part of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 4

Farley shared the exciting news of her return to Jersey Shore: Family Vacation on her website, Miss Domesticated. 

“Aside from the re-launch of my site, I will be working on a few new projects that I’m very excited about,” Farley said. “YES, I will be getting ready to film another season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Despite the rumors, I’ve made the decision to stick with the show and reunite once again with my second family.” 

Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley had trouble watching season 4 of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ 

Farley recently posted a video on YouTube where she answered questions from Jersey Shore fans. One fan asked if Polizzi would return for season 4 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, to which Farley said she had been praying to the “tan gods above” that Polizzi would change her mind. 

“We make jokes all the time about her coming back,” she said. “As ride or die as we are, I still hear that she is not coming back and that’s devastating to me.”

“I couldn’t really watch the last season,” Farley admitted. “I did catch the very end because I wanted to make sure [it] played out accurately. All I asked from producers for myself to move forward is play it how it was. Don’t edit the speech. Don’t edit reactions. Just play it as it was because I have been living through seven months of hell. And they did.”

Sadly, showing the events of Pivarnick’s wedding as they happened wasn’t enough to make Polizzi want to return.

For Farley, having fans get to see how Pivarnick’s wedding played out was enough for her to want to return to the show.

“I don’t think it was enough

Jersey Shore fans upset that Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi is not returning for Season 4 of Family Vacation

The season 4 premiere of Jersey Shore Family Vacation is set to air on Thursday, November 19.

However, fans are taking to social media to announce disappointment that OG cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will not be joining her shore family.

Since 2009, Snooki has become a fan favorite, and her crazy “meatball” antics are a beloved staple for the reality series.

Recently, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino shared a photo to his Instagram with the caption, “ITS HAPPENING #jsfamilyvacation4” as he and wife Lauren boarded a jet on their way to their filming location in Nevada.

Snooki commented on the post, “Yasss can’t wait to watch you both 💋 so proud of my fam.”  

This sparked an immediate fan response, with many posting about their displeasure in Snooki’s decision to call it quits. 

One fan wrote, “No Snooki? The show is pointless now without you.” with another adding, “won’t be the same without the queen ❤️.”

Backlash after Season 3

Snooki’s decision to leave is not entirely shocking, as the Season 3 finale ended in a blow out after the infamous speech given by Snooki, JWOWW, and Deena, roasting Angelina at her own wedding.

While meant to be a joke, the speech was not well received by Angelina or her wedding guests.

The speech ignited a feud between the girls, with Angelina proclaiming they ruined her wedding, leaving Snooki in tears during her final confessional.

“I just love my roomies, always. Jersey Shore is literally my life,” she said sobbing. “I never would have met my best friends, so the fact that it has to end like this, for me, it really sucks.”

Jersey Shore fans are not the only ones upset about Snooki’s departure.

JWOWW took to Twitter: “I watched my best friend quit because she couldn’t handle the stress. I stayed up so many nights hearing Deena cry over being called names she didn’t deserve. All while Angelina basked in the attention she was given”.

It is unclear whether the castmates made amends with Angelina before filming.

Production during pandemic

MTV announced the cast would take over a resort and be placed in their own quarantine “bubble.”

The cast is regularly being tested for COVID-19 and following all federal and state safety guidelines to keep everyone safe and healthy.

The cast includes Deena Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Angelina Pivarnick, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

Unlike other seasons, extended family members of the cast will stay with them in the Shore bubble.

While being isolated during a pandemic is sure to make for an interesting dynamic, one thing is for certain, “jerzdays” will be different without everyone’s favorite meatball, Snooki.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 4 premieres on Thursday, November 19, at 8/7c on MTV.
