(Newser) – Looks like we'll find out if "guido" really is offensive to Italians—MTV has decided to move the cast of Jersey Shore to Italy for the upcoming fourth season, the New York Daily News reports. Maybe sensing that America has had a bit much of the cast, the network plans to keep the series fresh by means of the Atlantic transplant—and to make matters more juicy, they've found one location with roots to the family of cast member Vinny Guadagnino.

"While the stateside Jersey Shore locales have become iconic for our audience, it's really the constantly evolving dynamic amongst the cast that keeps them coming back each season and Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us," an MTV statement reads. "The cast is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by. We can't wait to see what erupts as a result."
