While millions were tuned in Monday to watch the drama unfold between Georgia and Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship in Atlanta, the Tide and Dawgs weren’t the only southerners pulling in high ratings.

Monday was also the season one finale of the hit MTV reality show, “Floribama Shore,” which drew about 846,000 viewers when it debuted in November, according to the Northwest Florida Daily News.

If you’ve been following the antics of Aimee and Kirk, Nilsa and the rest, you’re in luck. MTV on Monday announced the show will be coming back for a second season.

Set in Panama City, “Floribama Shore” follows the story of eight young adults who come to spend the summer on the Gulf Coast. It is the follow up series to the MTV hit “Jersey Shore,” which made Snooki a household name.

But not everyone is happy with MTV’s newest hit. Page Six reported that the Flora-Bama Lounge, which is located in Perdido Key on the Florida/Alabama border, filed a cease-and-desist with producers of the show over its name.

EW reports the second season of “Floribama Shore” will contain 20 episodes and will debut in the summer of 2018.
