The CW has officially picked up FBoy Island after it was canceled at HBO Max, and its third season is coming later this year.
Hosted by comedian and actress Nikki Glaser, the series follows three women who move to a tropical paradise where they’re joined by 26 men: 13 self-proclaimed “Nice Guys” looking for love, and 13 self-proclaimed “Fboys who are there to compete for cold, hard cash.
“With its innovative and modern twist on the reality dating genre, incredibly talented host Nikki Glaser, and truly unforgettable title, FBoy Island on The CW is a perfect match,” said Heather Olander, Head of Unscripted Programming, The CW Network. “Along with our partners at STXtelevision, we look forward to growing the franchise on The CW with the gender-flipping spinoff FGirl Island and cannot wait to introduce the next generation of FBoys and FGirls to existing fans as well as a new broadcast audience.”
In addition, the FBoy Island franchise will add a spinoff, aptly titled FGirl Island, which will also be hosted by Glaser.
“I’m so damn excited that my favorite reality TV show is coming back,” said host and executive producer Nikki Glaser. “It’s icing on the cake that I get to host it again. I hope I forget everything that happens while I make the show so that I can relive it all when it airs. I couldn’t be prouder to have my name on such a hilarious, captivating and ridiculous show.”
Produced by STXtelevision and Elan Gale, the third season of FBoy Island will reportedly go into production this summer.
“STXtelevision is thrilled to partner with The CW in giving FBoy Island a wonderful new home,” said Jason Goldberg, Chief Creative Officer of STX Digital/New Media Group and Alternative Content. “What’s more, we’ll be expanding the fan-favorite franchise with the launch of the highly anticipated FGirl Island, which will be just as exciting, hilarious and outrageous. To date, FBoy Island has original local formats in Sweden, Spain, Holland, Denmark, New Zealand, Australia, Portugal, and the UK. The best in the FBoy and FGirl Island universe is yet to come.”
The new season of FBoy Island will air on the CW in the Fall of 2023. FGirl Island is tentatively set for midseason.
