‘Temptation Island’ to Return

USA Network in Talks to Revive the Controversial Relationship/Reality Series

USA Network is reported to be in advanced negotiations for a revival of former relationship/reality themed “Temptation Island” from Banijay Group. Airing for three seasons on Fox from 2001-03 and hosted by Mark L. Wahlberg, the series featured four couples who agreed to live with a group of singles of the opposite sex in order to test the strength of their relationships.

Although a breakout hit by the numbers in the first season, the novelty quickly off in seasons two and three for “Temptation Island.”

  1. I’d watch Temptation Island I liked the show when it was on Fox in the early 2000’s.
