FOX Renews 'Fantasy Island' for Season 2

FOX has today renewed its original anthology drama series Fantasy Island for a second season. Moreover, the broadcast network announced a two-hour holiday special from the series is set to air next month.

The anthology drama stars Roselyn Sanchez and Kiara Barnes, with a new cast of characters joining them each episode on Fantasy Island.

Liz Craft and Sarah Fain developed the drama. Fox Entertainment, Sony Pictures Television and Gemstone Studios produce.

On Tuesday, December 21 at 8/7c., the series returns for a special two-hour holiday special, "Welcome to the Snow Globe." In the special, a businesswoman's (guest star Lindsay Craft) fantasy of a perfect Christmas and meeting "Mr. Right" (guest star Eddie Cahill) tests Roarke in unexpected ways. Meanwhile, Mr. Jones (guest star Mackenzie Astin) faces his past, while a new Secret Santa tradition has Ruby and Javier looking to the future.

"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, 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."
