NBC announced that their new dating series, Love In The Wild will return for a second season next year. Paul Telegdy, President, of Alternative and Late Night Programming at NBC made the announcement earlier.
“The success of the relationships formed on the first season of this series is a testament to the unique format of this show,” said Telegdy. “We look forward to an even more compelling season as the series will return with new format twists and a new set of contestants who will conquer the wild — or not — to find love.”
“EUSA is thrilled that NBC is continuing its commitment to ‘Love in the Wild,’” said David Goldberg, Chairman of Endemol North America. “Season two will present a great new cast and a number of surprises that will only further the advance the distinctive format of the show.”
Last season’s winners Samantha Woods and Mike Spiro, as well as runners-up Heather Pond and Miles Haefner, are still currently in romantic relationships. Woods and Spiro recently returned from their trip around the world where they explored the romantic locations within France, Italy, Croatia and Australia.
The summer 2011 run of “Love in the Wild” averaged a 1.8 rating, 5 share in adults 18-49 and 5.5 million viewers overall. In adults 18-49, “Love in the Wild” finished #1 or tied for #1 in its time period among ABC, CBS and NBC with seven of eight telecasts.
“Love in the Wild” puts relationships to the ultimate test with exhilarating quests that push participants to the limit, both physically and emotionally. Single men and single women, all looking for love, will experience a romantic adventure unlike anything they could have ever imagined. These singles have tried it all — speed-dating, blind-dating, Internet dating — and now, they will journey to a tropical paradise to see if they can find that special someone they’ve been looking for.
During elimination all of the couples will come together to reveal whether a connection has been formed with their current partner — or if they would like to switch and get to know someone else. At the end of every episode, two heartbroken singles are sent home. The series culminates with just one couple left standing. That couple will have completed the adventure of a lifetime and found the one thing they’ve been searching for — “Love in the Wild.”
