Production on the MTV reality series Floribama Shore Season 4 has been suspended for 2 weeks due to a positive COVID-19 test, according to a new report.
Sources tell Deadline exclusively that the MTV hit has been forced to hit the pause button on Season 4 after a crew member tested positive for COVID-19. Following the positive test, the cast and crew will be quarantined for two weeks.
Jersey Shore spinoff Floribama Shore has had to suspend production on Season 4 for 2 weeks due to a positive COVID-19 test.
The outlet points out that while the series hasn’t been officially renewed by the network, production on the new season is happening. The series has been filming in Lake Havasu, Arizona after filming Season 3 in St. Pete Beach, Florida. Production company 495 Productions was the one to make the decision to suspend production as they are following local, state, and federal guideline when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic.
Floribama Shore premiered on the network in 2017 and has been a steady-ratings performer for the network. Like the original Jersey Shore, the show follows the same format of sticking strangers in a house and seeing what happens. As the seasons have progressed, the cast have become a tight-knit crew while still bringing the drama.
Floribama Shore Season 4 is expected to premiere on MTV in early 2021 and will star Kirk Medas, Candace Rice, Nilsa Prowant, Gus Smyrnios, Kortni Gilson, Jeremiah Buoni, Codi Butts, and Aimee Hall.
