Fox announced today that Fantasy Island has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes less than two months after the drama wrapped its 8-episode freshman run, which performed well as the #1 new scripted series among adults 18-49 despite a mixed critical reception.

An updated version of the 1977 original, the series is set at a luxury resort where any fantasy that its guests request is fulfilled - but they rarely turn out as expected. People from all walks of life arrive with desires and dreams and leave transformed and enlightened through the magical realism provided by Fantasy Island.

Look for Season 2 of Fantasy Island this fall as part of the 2021-2022 television season. In the meantime, though, the network will be airing a 2-hour special holiday episode on Tuesday, December 21.
