"We went right from Italy, got off the plane, and went right to Jersey," he tells UsMagazine.com. "It was tough because we didn't get any break from filming whatsoever."

"I did leave right in the beginning of filming in Jersey," he added. "I just needed to recharge my batteries a little bit. I wasn't feeling too good. I wanted to go home."

But he didn't reveal many more details: "You're going to see how it all unfolds when the new season comes out. I came back and finished it… you'll see in detail when it comes out."
Guadagnino says he's "not sure" if there will be a sixth season of the MTV reality show.
"We already finished Italy, and there's still another season," he said.

If the show continues, it likely wouldn't change format.
"I think there would have been so much time lapsed that it would make another fun, reunion crazy show. Whenever we take a break from each other, that's when all the wild stuff happens. The show would be fun just being ourselves."
