Yes, its really happening.  Like Pauly D before them, Nicole ‘Snooki‘ Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley have spun off into their own series, and rather than the network burning and destroying the footage for the abomination it is, it looks like the aptly-titled ‘Snooki & JWoww‘ has been given an official premiere date.  No, it’s not December 22, 2012.

From the MTV Upfront event, Deadline reports the return and premiere dates for a number of its programs, including ‘Teen Wolf,’ ‘Awkward’ and the newly-completed spin-off “Snooki & JWoww.’  The show will premiere on Thursday, June 21 at 10:00 p.m., taking over for the old ‘Jersey Shore‘ timeslot.

The week following ‘Snooki & JWoww’s premiere will see the second season debut of ‘Awkward,’ settling into its 10:30 time slot behind the ‘Jersey Shore’ duo.  A beast all its own however, is the second season premiere of ‘Teen Wolf,’ debuting on Sunday June 3 at 11:00 p.m. behind the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, much as its series premiere did one year ago.

At the presentation at the Beacon Theatre in New York, MTV also showcased its slate of new scripted and reality series, including ‘Catfish,’ ‘Inbetweeners,’ ‘Underemployed,’ ‘Wake Brothers’ and ‘Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous.’

Will you tune in for ‘Snooki & JWoww,’ boldly defying the number of New Jersey cities that attempted to bar the pair from ever shooting?  How do you think Snooki’s TV pregnancy will contrast with her usual party-girl image?  Tell us all your hopes and dreams in the comments section below!
