Here’s where to watch Jersey Shore Family Vacation online, including whether the show is available via Netflix, Hulu or Prime. It’s been almost a decade since the last episode of Jersey Shore aired but it remains one of the biggest – and most scandalous series – in reality TV history. The MTV show followed a group of eight housemates, including Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jennifer “JWoww” Farley, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, as they partied their way through summer vacations on the New Jersey shore.
Jersey Shore spawned several international incarnations like Warsaw Shore and Acapulco Shore, plus spin-offs starring its cast members including The Pauly D Project and Snooki & JWoww. Though Jersey Shore came to an end after its sixth season in 2012, the cast of the reality show were reunited for a one-off special titled Reunion Road Trip: Return To The Jersey Shore that aired on E! in 2017. That paved the way for a more permanent reunion in the form of Jersey Shore Family Vacation which premiered on MTV in 2018 and is currently midway through its fourth season.
Jersey Shore Family Vacation reunites most of the original cast members (minus Sammi Giancola) and though many have since settled into married life and parenthood that hasn’t mellowed them out too much. Over the three-and-half seasons that have aired so far, Jersey Shore Family Vacation has seen plenty of drama from Mike being sentenced to eight months in prison for tax evasion to a disastrous bridesmaids’ speech given by Snooki, JWoww and Deena Nicole Cortese at the wedding of co-star Angelina Pivarnick. With the second half of Jersey Shore Family Vacation season 4 coming soon, here’s how to catch up on episodes of the show online.
Unfortunately, Jersey Shore Family Vacation isn’t in the Netflix library but Hulu has the first two seasons plus all six seasons of its parent show Jersey Shore. Prime members are in luck as Jersey Shore Family Vacation season 1 and Jersey Shore seasons 1 through 6 are available via Amazon Prime with the Paramount+ add-on, which costs $5.99 per month. However, while Prime also has seasons 2 through 4 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, they’re not currently free to watch with membership.
The best way to watch Jersey Shore Family Vacation and other MTV shows is with Paramount+, the recently launched streaming service of MTV’s parent company ViacomCBS. Alongside Jersey Shore Family Vacation, Paramount+ also offers episodes of the original Jersey Shore and spinoff Snooki & JWoww plus plenty of other MTV reality shows including The Challenge and The Real World.
