‘Fantasy Island’ Gets April UK Premiere Date On Sky

Sky has set an April UK premiere date for Fantasy Island, a sequel to the original 1977 series, which airs on FOX in the USA.

‘Fantasy Island’ takes place at a luxury resort, where literally any fantasy requested by guests is fulfilled, although they rarely turn out as expected… Delving into the “what if” questions – both big and small – that keep us awake at night, each episode tells emotional, provocative stories about people who arrive with dreams and desires and depart enlightened and transformed through the magical realism of Fantasy Island.

Serving as steward of this mysterious island is Elena Roarke (Roselyn Sanchez, “Devious Maids,” “Grand Hotel”), a descendant of the iconic Mr. Roarke. Elena set aside her own ambitions, and even the love of her life, to uphold her family’s legacy. Sophisticated, insightful and always charming, her calm exterior masks the challenges of the responsibilities she has assumed. Assisting Elena is Ruby Okoro (Kiara Barnes, “The Bold and the Beautiful”), a young woman with an old soul who arrives on Fantasy Island with a terminal illness and is given a new lease on life there; and pilot Javier (John Gabriel Rodriquez, “Miranda’s Rights,” “Rosewood”), who also is the head of island transportation and a jack of all trades.

The all-new version of the classic show comes from Sony Pictures Television, Gemstone Studios and FOX Entertainment. Liz Craft and Sarah Fain serve as executive producers and showrunners. Anne Clements also serves as an executive producer.

Fantasy Island‘ Season 1 premieres Tuesday, 25th April 2023 at 9pm on Sky Max and the NOW streaming service in the UK.
