Floribama Shore Season 5 Release Date, Cast, And Nilsa's Pregnancy Explained

"Floribama Shore" brings all the panache and rowdiness of "Jersey Shore" to the southern end of the United States in a wild experience of reality TV. The MTV hit combines day drinking, beach scenes, and (of course) drama, drama, drama. We love it. That's what you get when you follow eight young people as they hash out the joy and contentions that inevitably arise from living in a house together, per Us Weekly.

While Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3 were set in Florida, which makes sense given the show's name, Season 4 brought Jeremiah Buoni, Codi Butts, Aimee Hall, Kirk Medas, Nilsa Prowant, Candace Rice, and Gus Smyrnios up north to Montana. A rustic, country abode was a big change from their usual spot in Panama City Beach, Fla., as Showbiz CheatSheet notes. But the views were amazing and the cast swapped their flip flops for warmer gear and made the most of it.

With Season 4 in the books, it makes sense that questions are circulating about Season 5 of "Floribama Shore." Here's what we know so far.

What's the release date for season 5?

When can fans expect to see Season 5 of "Floribama Shore"? Unfortunately, MTV hasn't announced a date yet, as ScreenRant notes. In fact, there's reason to believe that there might not even be a Season 5. "Floribama Shore" has undergone many changes since it first aired. Various cast members have come and gone. Not only that, but cast members have spoken out about their less-than-lovely treatment on the show by producers.

Most famously, Gus Smyrnios claimed that producers took advantage of some of his struggles to amp up viewership. On his Instagram Stories, Gus wrote: "New episode tonight but I'm done posting about and acknowledging the show," Gus wrote. "They can f*** with someone else for a change and exploit someone else's mental sh** while purposely trying to p*ss them off for entertainment," he said. (via Showbiz CheatSheet).

So clearly some of the cast is having a hard time with the show. That's not to say they won't come back but it does give some credence to the rumors that there might not be a Season 5. However, if there was, who would be on it?

'Floribama Shore' has lost several cast members

"Floribama Shore" has gone through some major changes since Season 1, especially in terms of losing cast members. Season 1 featured Nilsa Prowant, Kortni Gilson, Kirk Medas, Jeremiah Buoni, Gus Smyrnios, Codi Butts, Candace Rice, and Aimee Hall, according to Us Weekly. But over the seasons, the cast has changed.

Kortni Gilson left to take care of her mental health, according to ScreenRant, and didn't come back for Season 4. She was replaced by Mattie Lynn Breaux, but she didn't last very long and also didn't return after several controversies aired about her, according to a later publication by ScreenRant. Mattie had three DUIs, per TMZ, and faced some jail time because of them and appears to be taking a break from reality TV.

Candace Rice may also not be coming back. She has appeared in episodes of "Wade's World" as well as "#Washed," per ScreenRant, and has a growing career on-screen beyond reality TV. So if there's a Season 5, things might look different from previous seasons. Then there's Nilsa Prowant, who made headlines with her pregnancy. Here's the story on that.

Nilsa Prowant opened up about the challenges of filming while pregnant

Nilsa Prowant announced her pregnancy while filming "Floribama Shore," according to Page Six. She gave birth to her son, Gray Allen, in May and she shares her baby with her fiance, Gus Gazda.

In a touching moment, Nilsa explained to Page Six how her pregnancy brought her closer to certain cast members. "I know I got closer with Jeremiah [Buoni] and Candace [Rice] because I feel like they really respected my pregnancy. If I needed to go on a walk, Jeremiah would take me on a walk. I mean, look at that body — he obviously walks a lot!"

While she got tons of support, Nilsa also opened up about the challenges of being pregnant on set, especially where alcohol was concerned. "Everyone knows I'm a big party girl and I couldn't participate, you know, in very much of the drinking activities," Nilsa told Us Weekly. "A lot of the snow activities, like, that we were doing, I couldn't really do. So that was very different." Whether Nilsa appears on future seasons of "Floribama Shore" with baby Gray in tow is yet to be determined. We know we'd love to see some family moments though!
