Warning: This article contains spoilers for FBOY Island Season 1.
The F-Boys have been discovered, the final couples have formed, and $100,000 has been distributed. The first season of FBOY Island brought twists, turns, and a whole lot of heartbreak. At the end of the season, CJ ended up with New Jarred, Nakia coupled with OG Jared, and poor Sarah was blindsided by Garrett. Thankfully, the money he thought he’d won was given to Sarah for a charity of her choosing. So, really, everyone but Garrett won.
Now that the summer’s hottest dating show is over, HBO Max is going to have to quickly fill the void. Filmed in the Cayman Islands, FBOY Island takes time, money, and a stacked cast to film. The ten episode series featured three women and a total of 27 men. That’s a lot of F-Boys and Nice Guys to cast.
According to TVInsider, FBOY Island was HBO’s most watched reality show on their streaming service HBO Max. That bodes well for fans, since let’s face it, we can’t live without some reality TV drama in our lives. Keep reading to find out all we know so far about FBOY Island season 2.
Will There Be a FBOY Island Season 2?
Deadline reported on August 18—not even a week after the Season 1 finale aired—that FBOY Island is coming back for season 2. And even better, it sounds like host Nikki Glaser will also be back to present the next batch of F-Boys and Nice Guys.
In a press release, Glaser sounded thrilled about hosting again. “I couldn’t be happier about returning to FBOY ISLAND for season two. The only downside is that it confirms my greatest fear: that there are more than 12 F-boys on planet earth.”
“Season one undoubtedly kept the audience guessing but we have even more big twists in store for season two. To the next batch of F-boys, beware, we’re coming for you!” added Jennifer O’Connell, Executive Vice President, Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family, HBO Max.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, co-creator Elan Gale, a former Bachelor franchise producer, says he wants a whole franchise of the show. And he sounds like he already has plans for future seasons.
"What I’m hopeful for is that every season takes on a life of its own based on the leads. I think this season was really made by CJ and Nakia and Sarah. We followed their love stories," Gale says. "So I hope that every season allows us to follow whoever the leads are, and that’s going to give us the difference."
When is FBOY Island Season 2 coming?
Well, since the first season was filmed from March to April of this year and premiered in July, it's safe to say the show can make a quick turnaround. Plus, if they're filming in a tropical island again, they won't have to wait for a particular season to film and it should be sunny all year.
If HBO Max is as eager as they seem, we could have more FBOY Island by the end of the year, if not the beginning of next. In the meantime, we'll be impatiently waiting for more news.
For now, we can stalk the previous contestants’ Instagrams and find out if Garrett is actually dating someone from Love Island. Yeah, that one shocked us too.
