Production is set to begin this summer in Seaside Heights, NJ, the network at long last officially announced Monday.

In its fifth season, “Jersey Shore” delivered 9 of the top 15 cable telecasts of 2012 to date among 12-34 year olds — as befits, MTV boasted in Monday’s announcement — the network that is the cultural home of the millennial generation. Did you know the millennial generation, confronted with the out-of-wedlock pregnancy of one of its most popular TV personalities, goes all 1950’s on us, and can only bring itself to refer to it with coy expressions like “baby bumps,” and heading into “unchartered” territory?

Well, anyway, that’s the closest MTV could get to saying Snooki’s pregnant in Monday’s announcement – and who knew Seaside Heights was not yet incorporated?
