Ibiza Weekender has been given two brand new series, plus a new spin-off.
ITV has today announced two new 10-episode series of Ibiza Weekender, as well as new spin-off The Weekender Boat Party which will air over 6 episodes.
Ibiza Weekender follows a lively group of new and returning holiday reps as they give their guests the time of their lives on this renowned holiday island. With a fixed rig capturing the heady combination of sun, freedom, friendship and romance across a season, the Weekender brand is a candid reality show with soap style storylines.
Weekender’s latest series, which has recently concluded its run on ITV2, saw the highest viewing figures yet, peaking at 1 million.
Alongside the main show, The Weekender Boat Party's new format will see favourite and new weekender reps facing their biggest challenge yet: working aboard a yacht as they tour party hotspots and ensure it’s all plain sailing for their guests. With the captain keeping a watching eye over them, there’s sure to be some choppy waters ahead.
Satmohan Panesar, Commissioner, ITV2, said: “There is only one Weekender and its ever growing young audience are in for a treat when we set sail this summer and then return to Ibiza for more high jinx with our favourite group of reps.”
Gyles Neville, Executive Producer at programme makers Twofour, added: “We are delighted with Weekender’s continuing success and growing fan base – its unique down to earth characters continue to be engaging in a way that makes us all want to be a part of their holiday season – and with a Boat Party on board, the brand is even more accessible and aspirational than ever.”
Melanie Darlaston, Executive Producer, Motion Content Group commented: “With the reps taking to the high seas you can guarantee there will be plenty of mischief and drama! This new series will be a real treat for Weekender fans.”
