Loaded in Paradise, commissioned for ITVX and ITV2 from Twofour, has been confirmed to return for a second series.
The format, a hybrid combining sun-drenched, glossy reality with action, adrenaline and adventure, sees fun-loving pairs in a race to take control of, and spend, 50,000 euros as they aim to follow the show’s mantra: ‘Live your best life, just don’t get caught’.
The format achieved strong engagement with young audiences (more than a third of viewers were in the 16-34 demographic) and its return with a brand new 10 x 60’ series makes Loaded In Paradise the first reality format recommission for ITVX, which launched in late 2022.
The new run will re-visit the original location, Greece, but with an exciting new route, packed with luxurious locations, incredible spends, and twists and turns.
Satmohan Panesar, Factual Entertainment Commissioning Editor, ITV, said: “Loaded In Paradise was specially commissioned for ITVX to offer a bingeable, fresh new format in the reality space, with a new take on couples and a strong competitive, action element driving the narrative. We’re bringing it back for a second run and it promises even more drama, excitement and larger than life characters having fun in the sun.”
Louise Hutchinson, Head of Entertainment, Twofour, said: “We are so excited to be able to build on the success of series one. Loaded in Paradise is a fantastic format – adrenaline packed gameplay with brilliant reality content – which makes for a wonderfully, fresh, exciting series. We can’t wait to get back out to Greece.”
