"Jersey Shore" may be preparing to wrap its run after this season, but the MTV reality hit's orange-hued tentacles continue to spread across pop culture.

"Shore" fan favorite Vinny Guadagnino has landed his own talk show on MTV, "The Show With Vinny," the network said Tuesday. MTV did not say when the series will launch.

"The Show With Vinny" will be a hybrid talk/reality show and "will shatter the typical talk-show format by taking the biggest celebrities out of the studio and into Vinny Guadagnino's family home in Staten Island, N.Y.,"  the network said.

The show will feature characters from Guadagnino's personal life, such as his mother Paula and Uncle Nino.

"Celebrities will let their guard down to have a meal and a candid conversation about whatever comes  up complete with lots of commentary from Vinny's peanut gallery of loved ones," MTV said of the new series. "No studio or audience; just family, food and big friggin' stars."

"The Show With Vinny," which will be executive-produced by SallyAnn Salsano of "Jersey Shore" production company 495 Productions, joins "The Pauly D Project" and "Snooki & JWoww" as an offshoot of "Shore."
