With the initial ratings of the show under the title “The Island” being promising enough, the producing team is just compelled to announce its second season. Nevertheless, they are tight-lipped so far being not in a hurry to rush things up. Thus, the series is on the hook so far. That’s why let’s keep our eyes open in the case of the near appearance of any kind of info.
Making a short sketch
Following the idea of describing briefly this project, we are set to acknowledge of the main production aspects. So, let’s start. The series is an adventure show by the genre. The broadcasting is a matter of concern of the producers of the NBC channel. Now we are in possession of one chapter that includes six episodes. The premiere was held in the previous May. Since that time, the silence is kept concerning the series resumption for the sophomore cycle.
The Island is a show about survival skills of people and is reckoned to be a response to the similar show broadcasted on CBS under the title “Survivor”.

The show about survival is hosted by survivalist Bear Grylls, the famous adventurer. By the way, it is not his first project on NBC and he has already cooperated with the team of Get Out Alive and Running Wild. The first one mentioned has been unfortunately canceled after the first premiere but the latter one is already renewed for the second season that is scheduled to be broadcasted this summer.
But let’s get to the very concept. The participants of this show are the team consisting of 14 ordinary American men, aged 21 to 64. They are to apply all their skills in order to survive on a deserted island without any luxuries, or even the main conveniences that the civilized world can offer that is food, water, and dwelling.
