FBoy Island is getting another shot at love: Following its cancellation by HBO Max, the dating show has landed at The CW for a third season, according to our sister site Deadline. What’s more, The CW is also poised to pick up a spinoff titled FGirl Island, a gender-swapped version of the original.
FBoy Island, a tongue-in-cheek reality series created by The Bachelor producer Elan Gale, sees three women choose from a field of potential mates in a tropical locale, with the men secretly divided between “Fboys” who are superficial and commitment-phobic and “nice guys” who are ready for an adult relationship. (When “Fboys” are eliminated, they are condemned to a sparse, Survivor-like shelter, while eliminated “nice guys” are given luxury accommodations and lavish meals.) Comedian Nikki Glaser hosts and adds lots of snarky one-liners to the proceedings, including the immortal kiss-off line: “Fboy? F-bye.”
Fboy Island premiered on HBO Max in July 2021 with a 10-episode freshman season. It was renewed the following month, and Season 2 debuted this past July. HBO Max then cancelled the series in December, amid a reported move away from unscripted content. It remains to be seen, though, how airing on a broadcast network like The CW will affect FBoy Island‘s more adults-only elements.
