On Thursday, Fox announced it has renewed the reboot of Fantasy Island for a second season. The series has been a ratings winner for the network with its new take on the classic 1977-1984 series that originally aired on ABC.

Daytime fans know that Kiara Barnes (Ex-Zoe, The Bold and the Beautiful) stars along with Roselyn Sanchez (Ex-Devious Maids).  In addition, Kimberly McCullough (Robin, General Hospital) directed the recent August 10th episode of the series, and former B&B star Adain Bradley (Ex-Xander) has also appeared.

In the the log lines for Fantasy Island it states, “Fantasy Island takes place at a luxury resort, where literally any fantasy requested by guests is fulfilled, although they rarely turn out as expected. 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.”

In story, Barnes plays Ruby Akuda and Sanchez plays Elena Roarke, a descendant of the original series lead character, Mr. Roarke (Ricardo Montalbán).

Fox Entertainment President Michael Thorn said of the renewal pick-up: “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. 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.”

Coming up, Fox will air a holiday episode of Fantasy Island on December 21st, with season two set to make its debut some time in 2022.

So, glad to hear Fantasy Island is going to have a second season? Have you enjoyed Kiara Barnes on the series thus far? Comment below.

Gosh, I couldn’t wait for this show to start, but was utterly disappointed. I did not welcome Ms. Barnes, as I has enough of her on B&B and Roselyn Sanchez whom I love as well as her husband who appears on The Rookie, I feel is being wasted on this show, which really gets stupid at times. She has so much talent and anyone that knows her and how much more she’s capable of will hopefully agree with me. Good luck to her though.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
