Weekender brand to return to ITV2 for a seventh series.
“This series continues to grow and its increasing popularity among our young adult audience is a reflection of ITV2’s strategy to build strong programme brands that are talked about and well watched.” – Satmohan Panesar, ITV Commissioning Executive
The Weekender brand is set to return for a seventh scorching season on ITV2, the youth-aimed channel has announced.
Ibiza Weekender yet again proved to be essential viewing as it grew its loyal fan base among the younger viewers throughout last year’s run. With the destination hotspot of Ibiza ever popular, an extended ten episode run on the White Isle will follow some familiar rep faces along with a few new ones eager to learn the ropes on Europe’s biggest party island.
With fixed rig cameras at the hotel, the series will capture all of the drama and reality as it unfolds. Expect high jinks, outrageous nights out and dramas around the clock showing how us Brits keep it anything but classy abroad.
“Weekender provides the ultimate escapism – the warm characters and hot holiday destinations never fail to be an explosive combination. We’re delighted the funny, continuing soap stories of the reps and their holiday charges continue to be relevant and compelling for the audience.” – Gyles Neville, Executive Producer, Twofour
The series is set to air in 2018.
