[ # ] Fantasy Island will fulfill more fantasies
November 4th, 2021 under Fox

Fox announced today that they picked up their summer hit Fantasy Island for a second season. The show is a sequel to the 1978 series with Roselyn Sanchez starring as Elena Roarke, Mr. Roarke’s niece.

“Thanks to the fantastic Roselyn Sanchez and charming Kiara Barnes and the captivating stories that tapped into the core tenets of emotion and aspiration, Fantasy Island was the perfect wish fulfillment and escape we all needed this summer,” said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, FOX Entertainment. “Liz Craft, Sarah Fain and everyone at Sony and Gemstone did an excellent job on this series and, like all good things, it left us wanting more. We’re so happy to have Elena Roarke, Ruby Akuda and everyone on FANTASY ISLAND open their world again for a brief visit this winter and for a longer stay next year.”

What is this brief visit he is talking about? Fantasy Island is getting a 2-hour Christmas episode with Mackenzie Astin on December 21st.

Personally, I was pleasantly surprised it was picked up. I didn’t think it did well enough in the ratings, but I was wrong. And to be honest, I think it is better than the original. I watched the first one and the remake on Tubi, and I had to shut both of them off after a few episodes. However, I watched the whole season of the Fox program. Does that tell you how much I enjoyed it?
