It will be a short run for one Fox series, with Rob Wade, the network’s president of Alternative Entertainment, announcing that the “Paradise Hotel” reboot has been canceled after one five-week season.
Deadline quotes Wade saying Wednesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour: “We won’t be bringing it back.”
Wade added: “We were very proud of ‘Paradise Hotel’ but ultimately it was designed to air over many, many hours, and we started it relatively short, three times a week. We felt it didn’t quite perform at the level we wanted it to perform, and if we are going to get the opportunity to try a new show, we have to have the space. But we were very happy with the show, it was a great show and highly entertaining, and the production company did a great job.”
The reality show, which was hosted by Kristin Cavallari, launched May 9.
“Fox brought back ‘Paradise Hotel’ as two similar reality series also hit the airwaves, the US adaptation of ‘Love Island’ on CBS and USA Network’s ‘Temptation Island’ revival,” Deadline notes, adding that both shows have been renewed for second seasons.
