The FOX series stars Roselyn Sanchez as Elena Roarke, a descendant of the iconic Mr. Roarke (Ricardo Montalbán), with Sanchez (Kiara Barnes) as her assistant.

“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 of entertainment for 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.”

“We are thrilled to be back for a Season Two! Liz, Sarah, Roselyn and the whole Fantasy Island family reimagined this storied IP and gave it just the modern female flair it needed to resonate with audiences around the world,” said Marie Jacobson, executive vice president of Gemstone Studios. “We’re so proud of the show and grateful for our stellar partners at FOX.”
