In the "I didn't see this one coming" category, it appears that the cast of the Jersey Shore are headed off to find their Guido roots (and not the ones near their scalps). This screams international incident, and hopefully the only Situations that appear are on-screen, for everyone's safety.

On Tuesday (January 25), MTV announced that not only had "Shore" been renewed for a fourth season, but that, in the upcoming season, the cast would be taking their show on the road ... all the way to Italy. Production on season four is set to being in spring 2011, and will premiere "later this year."

"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," Chris Linn, MTV's executive vice president of programming and head of production, said in a statement. "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."
