Fox Renews ‘Fantasy Island’ Reboot For Season Two



Proof of the now lack of importance of the traditional Nielsen ratings was the announcement by Fox of a second season pickup for its reboot of “Fantasy Island.” From Sony Pictures Television, Gemstone Studios and Fox Entertainment, “Fantasy Island” takes place at a luxury resort, where literally any fantasy requested by guests is fulfilled, although they rarely turn out as expected. The logline: Delving into the “what if” questions — both big and small — that keep us awake at night, each episode will tell emotional, provocative stories about people who arrive with dreams and desires and depart enlightened and transformed through the magical realism of Fantasy Island.

“Fantasy Island” stars Roselyn Sanchez as Elena Roarke, a descendant of the iconic Mr. Roarke, who set aside her own ambitions, and the love of her life, to uphold her family’s legacy, and Kiara Barnes also stars as Ruby Akuda, a young woman with an old soul who arrived with a terminal illness and was given a new lease on life as Roarke’s right hand.

“Fantasy Island” will return with a two-hour holiday themed episode on Tuesday, December 21.
