FBoy Island is making a comeback.

The reality dating series has been picked up for a third season by The CW after Max (formerly HBO Max) canceled the show.

Comedian and actress Nikki Glaser is set to return as host when season 3 premieres in the fall, The CW announced this week.

“With its innovative and modern twist on the reality dating genre, incredibly talented host Nikki Glaser, and truly unforgettable title, FBoy Island on The CW is a perfect match,” said Heather Olander, head of unscripted programming, at The CW network.

“I’m so damn excited that my favorite reality TV show is coming back,” added host and executive producer Nikki Glaser.

Along with the announcement came news of a spinoff series, FGirl Island, also hosted by Glaser. Both shows will go into production back-to-back this summer, with FGirl Island slated for a midseason debut.

The original show, FBoy Island, follows three women who move to a tropical paradise where they’re joined by 26 men – 13 “Nice Guys” looking for love, and 13 “Fboys,” there to compete for cash. The women will navigate the dating pool together with the hope of finding a lasting love connection. By the finale, the Nice Guys and the FBoys are revealed and the women make their ultimate choices.

FBoy Island is a social experiment that asks: Can FBoys reform or do Nice Guys always finish last?

FGirl Island switches genders, with three men trying to identify 24 women as either womanizers (“FGirls”) or seeking a serious relationship (“Nice Girls”).

FBoy Island and FGirl Island are produced by STXtelevision.

“STXtelevision is thrilled to partner with The CW in giving FBoy Island a wonderful new home,” said Jason Goldberg, chief creative officer of STX Digital/New Media Group and Alternative Content, said.
