The original Geordie Shore cast members, including Charlotte Crosby and Holly Hagan, will return for a reunion series, MTV has announced.
The reality show, which first aired in 2011, came after the success of its American equivalent, Jersey Shore, and follows a group of young adults from Newcastle who move into a house together.
The new series will be the “ultimate Geordie throwback” as original cast members Crosby, Hagan, Sophie Kasaei and Marnie Simpson make it their mission to orchestrate the ultimate Geordie Shore reunion.
Crosby, 31, said: “I’ve always said I’d be ready to be on a reunion show and I’ve made no secret of the fact that Geordie Shore holds a special place in my heart.
“I’m really looking forward to reconnecting and reminiscing with my favorite people and lifelong friends.”
The reality star, who recently announced she’s pregnant with her first child, originally left the show in 2016 after announcing her departure on Twitter.
Hagan initially left the show in 2016 but later returned as a part-time cast member.
Ahead of the new series, the 29-year-old said: “I’m really looking forward to filming again with everyone from years past. It will be very special to have everyone in the same room together!”
The show includes a group vacation, a long-awaited wedding and a party at Geordie Shore’s home.

Simpson, 30, joined the show in 2013 and has since also appeared on reality shows Ex On The Beach and Celebrity Big Brother.
The Geordie Shore reunion series will see the arrival of Simpson’s second child, according to MTV, after announcing in February that she was expecting a boy.
Simpson said: “I’m so excited for this reunion – it’s what I and so many of the other cast members have been waiting for.
“I’m so excited to see how it all plays out. I have no idea how it’s going to go or what’s going to happen, but I’m so ready for it. Bring it on!”
Kasaei has left the show several times and has rejoined it several times since joining as part of the original cast in 2011.
“To see all the friends that have become family and had such a big impact on my 20s will be emotional, but also like nothing has changed apart from our ages and our families. This is a moment I’ve been waiting for,” said the 32-year-old.
– The new series will air later this year on MTV and the streaming service Paramount+.
