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).

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.

Brace yourselves for hot and heavy nights as the couples embark on an adventure to begin dating these new prospects.
