Can you get a after tonight’s grand finale on Fox? Fantasy Island to extend season 2? Or is it more likely that the show will be cancelled? As you can imagine, there are a few different things worth addressing here.
So where do we kick off? Let’s just say the network isn’t sure for now if they’re bringing the reboot back for another run… but we’re not encouraged based on the most recent reviews either. We’re generally talking about a show with an average rating of 0.3 and just over 1.6 million viewers, which aren’t numbers that offer much cause for optimism. Even in the summer, we think Fox probably expects more from a scripted property, especially one with an episode last week that aired after NFL programming.
Does the network have a reason to rush with a refresh? Not really. Since this is a summer show, they don’t have to make a decision right away; they can take their time and see, to some extent, what they want the next set of episodes to look like.
However, from this perspective it is clear what is the main problem with the new Fantasy Island was – the lack of major guest stars and stories that would attract new viewers. If you want to run an anthology show where each episode is basically its own thing, you need to find people who spark curiosity. Maybe that means casting people who aren’t immediately perceived as actors, such as musicians or athletes – something that gets people interested. You probably won’t be drawing big names from the acting world, so with that in mind you need to get creative. We wish we saw some more of that.
