Fox expressed their satisfaction with the enjoyable and escapist nature of the reimagined classic series, which originally premiered during the summer. They had high hopes for its success among viewers and acknowledged Sony Pictures Television as an important partner. Fox also mentioned their continued collaboration on other projects such as ‘Accused,’ ‘Alert: Missing Persons Unit,’ ‘Doc,’ and the upcoming animated series ‘Universal Basic Guys/Hoagie Bros.’
The network extended their gratitude to the cast, including Roselyn Sánchez, Kiara Barnes, and John Gabriel Rodriquez, as well as the crew and executive producers Liz Craft, Sarah Fain, and Anne Clements for their collaboration on Fantasy Island. The second season of the show has been airing as part of Fox’s midseason schedule.
The lead role of Elena Roarke, a descendant of the original Mr. Roarke, in the series, is portrayed by Roselyn Sánchez. She runs the island known as Fantasy Island, where guests’ dreams and nightmares come to life. Kiara Barnes and John Gabriel Rodriquez also star alongside Sánchez. The show boasts a diverse lineup of guest stars, with Season 2 featuring Cheryl Hines, Rachael Harris, Brett Butler, Teri Hatcher, and James Denton.
Liz Craft and Sarah Fain developed the series and hold the positions of executive producers and showrunners. Anne Clements is also an executive producer. The show is a co-production between Sony Pictures Television and Fox Entertainment.
In a departure from ordering pilots, Fox has chosen to go straight-to-series with several projects this year. Among them are the live-action shows “Doc” and “Rescue: Hi-Surf,” as well as the animated shows “Krapopolis,” “Grimsburg,” and “Universal Basic Guys/The Hoagie Bros.” “Krapopolis” has already been renewed for a third season, while “Grimsburg” has been renewed for a second season.
