FBoy Island Season 2: Release Date, Cast And New Details

While many of you are likely struggling through a bout of reality television dating show fatigue, the one option that might have provided a bit of relief from the monotonous cycle of reality television dating shows was HBO Max's brand new offering, "FBoy island." 

The show, which premiered in July 2021, follows three women – CJ Franco, Nakia Renee, and Sarah Emig – as they try to decipher which 12 of the 24 male contestants on the show are self-proclaimed "FBoys," per HBO Max. The series really asks the larger question that most women face as they navigate the world of dating and love: Is he a good boy or a bad boy? Do good guys really finish last? Viewers of "FBoy Island" will find out the true answer to this age-old question.

The show is hosted by comedian Nikki Glaser and created by former "Bachelor" producer Elan Gale, per Insider. Above all else, "FBoy Island" has been praised for straying away from the typical reality television dating show format and instead allowing the show's cast members to engage with one naturally without forcing contestants to go on dates or participate in competitions. The only element of the show that follows a similar format to other dating shows is the fact that if one of the 12 self-proclaimed bad boys makes it to the end of the competition, they win $100,000.

When can viewers expect a second season of the show to premiere?

In August, HBO Max announced that they had renewed "FBoy Island" for a second season, just a few weeks after the series first premiered on the streaming platform, according to Variety. "With a title like 'FBoy Island,' we knew we would get the audience's attention and we're thrilled that they've responded to the self-aware, comedic nature of the format, proving that they are excited by this fresh approach that puts women in control," Sarah Aubrey, the head of original content at HBO Max, told Variety.

While HBO Max does intend to film another season of the show, the COVID-19 variants are currently making it difficult to pinpoint exactly when filming will take place, and, along with that, when the show will actually premiere on the streaming platform, as creator Elan Gale told The Hollywood Reporter.

At this point, it appears as though the second season will follow a similar plot to the show's first season, according to a report by Variety.

Who will be appearing in the show's second season?

According to Bustle, no details have been released regarding the cast of characters who are set to appear in the second season of "FBoy Island." 

In the first season of the show, Nakia Renee, CJ Franco, and Sarah Emig searched for their love match in a pool of 24 men from all walks of life. Comedian Nikki Glaser will at least be returning as the host of the show. "I couldn't be happier about returning to 'FBoy Island' for Season 2," Glaser told Variety. "The only downside is that it confirms my greatest fear: that there are more than 12 Fboys on planet earth."

While it's not clear who will be cast in the second season of the show, during an interview with Refinery29, the show's creator, Elan Gale, mentioned that there is a chance that bisexual cast members could be involved in future seasons. "There should be no rules moving forward with 'Fboy Island,'" Gale told Refinery29. "We made a first season to really test the boundaries of what we can do on a dating show. Moving forward, we want to blow the top off this thing and go in every possible direction."

What can viewers expect in FBoy Island's second season?

Currently, no details have been released regarding what viewers might expect to see in the second season of "FBoy Island."

During the finale of the first season of the show, the three leading ladies were asked to finally choose which contestant would be their ultimate love match. Essentially, if the ladies chose a good guy, they would continue their relationship beyond the show and split $100,000. However, according to Salon, if the ladies chose a self-proclaimed "FBoy," that "FBoy" would hold all of the power in his hands. 

In the end, CJ chose a nice guy, Jarred, and they split $100,000. It is unclear if they are still together. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), both Nakia and Sarah chose bad boys Jared and Garrett, respectively. While Jared agreed to continue dating Nakia and offered to split the cash prize with her, Garrett ultimately lived up to his "FBoy" status by dumping Sarah and opting to keep the full cash prize for himself.

If this dramatic ending is any indication of what might lie ahead in the show's future, viewers are sure to be in for a treat.
