For many years now, Elena Roarke has been managing the affairs of Fantasy Island. The most unthinkable desires come true here, and people come here to get rid of fears, complexes and other daily troubles. Thanks to the magic of the island, visitors are able to see what is not in reality. But what did Elena herself donate to make the business prosperous?
“Fantasy Island ss 2”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the TV show “Fantasy Island” is expected in August 2022, but so far this information cannot be called official.
After the release of Season 1, there was a conflict between producers Anne Clements and Sarah Fain, which they almost brought to litigation – this fact may affect the timing of the release of Season 2.
Elena receives regular guests who have flown to her to solve their problems. One of them turns out to be the successful TV presenter Christine Collins. The woman was sent on vacation for scolding a new employee for bringing donuts while on set. A woman has been on diets since childhood and is forced to deny herself such sweets.
She came to the island with the goal of eating whatever she wanted. But Christine did not fully understand her problem. The culprit was a childhood trauma inflicted on her by her stepfather. The man did not want to see a chubby girl in his stepdaughter and forced her to follow a diet. Later, Christine lived with a constant feeling of hunger, but after another dinner on the island, she refused even to have breakfast.
Having left home happy, Christine did not even pay attention to other people. But among them were Ruby and Mel – an elderly couple. They decided to spend a few days in seclusion as the cancer was slowly killing Ruby. The old woman doesn’t have very long to live, but she is full of optimism. Deciding not to return from the trip, Ruby mentally said goodbye to her family and wanted to throw herself into the sea.
And Mel just wanted Ruby to stop getting sick on the island and feel young and full of strength for several days. By taking a dip under a waterfall, they both become younger. At the same time, the disease no longer causes inconvenience to Ruby. They enjoy every minute, and she meets a stranger-girl who has a strong attraction to Ruby.
Mel notices this and recalls how in their youth Ruby made a choice between her beloved and him. Then Ruby chose him. When the time of departure comes, Elena invites the old woman to stay and save her life in return. Ruby disagrees. Deciding that she deserves better, Mel asks his wife to stay and offers to tell the children that she died without surviving the return flight.
Ruby becomes Elena’s assistant. Hundreds of guests are waiting for them, dozens of ruined lives, but in return they give the island their fate. None of them will know how the fate of those who left the island developed. But there is a complete picture of those who will soon become their guest…
Actors and their roles
- Elena – instead of her father, runs a place that fulfills other people’s desires; has practically no personal life, since she is completely concerned with the prosperity of the business; sees something in Ruby that attracts her; after seeing a sign on her, Elena invites her to become the main assistant – Roselyn Sánchez.
- Ruby – arrived as an old woman with esophageal cancer, as a result, she remained young forever, having lost her husband who flew back, she herself remained on the island; sees a girl who has sympathy for her – Kiara Barnes.
- Mel – Ruby’s husband; dearly and endlessly loves his wife, so he insisted that she stay on the island and live one more life – Adain Bradley.
- Christine – a middle-aged woman a successful presenter who cannot accept extra pounds; obsessed with weight and work; needs recharging, so she goes to the island – Bellamy Young.
- Landon – Christine’s stepfather; instilled in the girl that she should starve; his ghost poisoned the girl’s life on the island until the grown-up Christine saw him roasted like a pig at the stake – Rick Holmes.
- Few would believe that the lead actress Roselyn Sanchez was 47 years old at the time of filming. In 2012, the actress gave birth to her first child, after which she preferred not to appear in public for several years – then everyone believed that Roselyn’s appearance was spoiled. When the paparazzi photographed her with a child, they were surprised – she looked great.
- In the 80s, the TV show of the same name was released, in which the island was led by Elena’s father. Even then, it was clear that the idea was doomed to success, but the crumpled narrative forced new craftsmen to reshoot the picture, making it better, or to come up with a sequel. The first season of the 2021 TV show “Fantasy Island” showed mediocre ratings, and all hope for the second one.
- The quarrel between producers Anne Clements and Sarah Fain stemmed from a failed season 1. They write that Clements spent all the money, counting on more audience coverage, while Fain suggested leaving part of the budget for season 1 for filming the second one. The details of the quarrel are unknown. The main thing is that the result of the activities of the two women should be liked by the audience.
