Renewed Or Cancelled?
Fantasy Island is a show that follows guests of a beautiful tropical resort who get to make their secret fantasies and wishes granted by the mysterious Miss Roarke.
After completing Season 2, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
What is Fantasy Island Season 2 about?
Fantasy Island is set on a remote luxury island that Elena watches over, welcoming guests to make their secret fantasies and wishes come true. However, where would the fun be if it was that easy? The guests have to solve the island’s mystery to survive the nightmare their fantasies bring.
We have extensive coverage of Fantasy Island across the site, including a full-season review and recaps for all episodes. You can find those HERE!
Has Fantasy Island been renewed for season 3
At the time of this writing, FOX has been forthcoming about the fate of the show. FOX recently released a statement announcing that the show will not return for another season. Part of the statement read, “We were very pleased with Fantasy Island’s fun and escapist creative, which we had hoped would gain strong traction among viewers.”
It is clear that FOX opted to cancel the show due to low ratings. With only a 0.20 average rating, season 2 was the lowest-rated of any show on Fox this season. The show’s cancellation is not surprising as ratings are usually the best indication of a show’s survival chances.
What we know about season 3 so far:
Sadly, we already know the fate of the show, but we can still speculate about the what if’s. If the show had been given a green light, it would have been nice to see how the relationship between Javier and Elena deepens and Ruby’s new love interest.
It would have also been fun to see who will make a guest appearance in the show. I was hoping Eric Winter or one of the casts from Devious Maid would make an appearance. It would have been an enjoyable reunion to see. Unfortunately, the curtains close here for Fantasy Island.
