NEW YORK, NY - February 26, 2019 - USA Network today announced a second season pickup for its buzzy reality series TEMPTATION ISLAND. Set to film later this year, Mark L. Walberg will return to host an extended 12-episode sophomore run, which will include a reunion special. Produced by Banijay Studios North America, TEMPTATION ISLAND is currently airing its first season on USA on Tuesdays at 10/9c, with the seventh episode set to premiere tonight.

Since its January 15 debut, TEMPTATION ISLAND has grown its audience by double digits (+34% P18-49, +36% P25-54, +23% total viewers) thanks in part to strong social buzz (#1 new cable series of the year for social engagements). The series is also the #1 original cable series in its time period for P18-34.*

TEMPTATION ISLAND follows four unmarried couples at a crossroads in their relationship. Each must decide whether to commit to each other or ultimately give in to the temptation - a decision that could change the course of their life forever. Together, the couples travel to a romantic paradise, where they join 24 sexy single men and women all in search of love. Brace yourselves for hot and heavy nights as the couples embark on an adventure to begin dating these new prospects.
