MTV announced its summer lineup a little while ago, and this semi-prominent news: "Teen Wolf" begins its fourth season June 23, while "Snooki and JWoww" got picked up for another season, too.

Meanwhile, MTV is taking a shot at another series that would appear -- we have no tape, but the description is suggestive -- to be another "Buckwild," this time set in Alaska. ("Buckwild" was canceled in April 2013 after the death of a contestant; it was unrelated to the production of the show, but MTV nonetheless decided to pull the plug.)

Here's the description for "Slednecks" (no airdate yet):

“Slednecks” is a new, half-hour docu-series following a group of ‘outdoor tough’ friends living in the modern-day Wild, Wild West of Alaska. It’s an inside look at their unique lifestyle where the world can be tougher and more dangerous than anywhere else in the Lower 48. Yet these “Sled-necks” make the most of what they have, always making sure they have a good time doing it and maintaining the close bonds they have forged as friends.
