Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Reality, MTV, Gossip, News,

The SituationMike "The Situation" Sorrentino has landed his own reality show. The Jersey Shore star has already begun filming scenes for his spin-off series, which will focus on the party animal's family life and his wild antics in the New Jersey suburbs.

TMZ is reporting Mike has rented a house during production which is right next door to the pad where his former co-stars' Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni Farley filmed their own spin-off, Snooki & JWoww.

Fans of Jersey Shore are already familiar with Mike's younger sister Melissa, who memorably enjoyed a flirtation with housemate Vinny Guadagnino, and it is thought his older brothers Frank and Marc could also make an appearance.

Mike - who appeared on British reality show Celebrity Big Brother in 2012 - checked into rehab for an addiction to prescription pain killers last year and has been on a mission to turn his life around and stay sober ever since.

Jersey Shore has been axed. MTV confirmed the forthcoming sixth season of the reality TV show - which will premiere in October - will be its final season, but the network is to commemorate the end of the program with a one-hour special entitled "Gym, Tan, Look Back," on September 6. The episode will feature interviews with the Jersey Shore cast and a sneak peek of the sixth season, plus there will be a look back at some of the show's highlights since it began in December 2009.

The show has inspired a number of spin-offs including Geordie Shore - the English version of the program, which takes place in Newcastle, north east England - and Jersey Shore stars Snooki and Jenni "JWoww" Farley have gone on to create their own reality show, Snooki & JWoww.
