Couples will once again get a chance to work on their relationships in the public eye with the revival of Temptation Island. USA Network is bringing back the reality series, with the network targeting a Tuesday, January 15, 2018 premiere date.
USA Network confirmed the series’ original host, Mark L. Walberg (not to be confused with actor Mark Wahlberg), is set to host the series’ revival. Season one of the new Temptation Island will consist of 10 episodes.
The 2019 Temptation Island is produced by Banijay Studios North America. David Goldberg, Caroline Baumgard, and Scott Jeffress are executive producing the reality series’ rebirth.
“In a period of revival television, the return of Temptation Island, a show that leapt onto the scene with equal parts ratings bang and media attention, makes all the sense in the world,” stated David Goldberg, CEO, Banijay Studios North America. “Temptation Island retains key format elements, but a concerted effort was made to populate the island with singles genuinely looking for love whose personalities are appealing to the four couples who are questioning the long term viability of their relationships. Temptation Island has never been more relevant because in so many ways it mirrors the way singles and couples navigate today’s myriad of options to connect.”
“As cable’s #1 entertainment network for 12 years and running, USA is home to some of the most-talked about shows on TV,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Our reboot of Temptation Island is sure to spark intrigue, debate and conversation for a whole new generation of viewers.”
The Temptation Island Plot:
“Temptation Island follows four dating couples at a pivotal time in their relationship, where they must mutually decide if they are ready to commit to one another for the rest of their lives — or should go their separate ways. Together, the couples travel to the tropical paradise of Maui, Hawaii, where they join 24 eligible men and women. There, they live the ‘single life,’ in a test that is meant to help answer their most difficult questions about their relationship.”
