Production halted Monday when the castmembers refused to participate without first negotiating new contracts for more money. The show will continue filming in the next few days.
"MTV is pleased that the Jersey Shore cast are returning to Seaside Heights to continue production on Season 3," MTV spokeswoman Emily Yeomans said in a statement. "Not only have they become a part of the MTV family, but fans worldwide have fallen in love with them."
The cast initially requested $30,000 per episode for a 10-episode season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Miami-centric second season premieres on MTV on Thursday, July 29 at 10/9c.
After-hours e-mails and calls to the cast's reps were not immediately returned.
