A source told The Sun Online: "Sophie's got other projects she wants to concentrate on and could return in the future if it's right for the show.
"The rest of the cast, apart from Gaz [Beadle], will be back on screen and are preparing to film right now."
Sophie's representative and MTV have been approached for comment.
The Geordie lass rose to fame in 2011 as one of the original cast members of the popular MTV reality show, which she quit to pursue her long-distance relationship with Jay Bigz.
But she was devastated last summer after a surprise split from her ex ahead of her 30th birthday.
In July, The Sun Online exclusively revealed Sophie's co-star Gaz had quit the OG series to focus on his family.
The star, 32 – who has two children with fiancée Emma McVey – decided it is too much balancing parenthood with the show.
A source told The Sun: "Gaz has stepped away from Geordie OGs and won't film the next series.
"He loved being a part of the show but after welcoming his baby daughter feels it would be too much juggling parenthood with Emma and filming with two young kids."
MTV had no comment when contacted by The Sun Online.
Gaz has appeared in two series of OGs which follows up on former Geordie Shore favourites to see how their lives have changed since their days on the show.
The dad-of-two shot to fame in 2011 on the first ever series of Geordie Shore.
He remained a popular fixture until 2017 a year after he began dating Emma.
MTV series Geordie OGs hit screens in 2019 but filming for the third series was halted earlier this year because of the pandemic.
