NBC has renewed Love In The Wild for a second season, the first new broadcast series that launched this past summer to get a second spin. The move is somewhat surprising given that the adventure-dating series, a cross between Survivor and Bachelor Pad, averaged a lackluster 1.8/5 in adults 18-49 and 5.5 million viewers. But the ratings bar in the summer is pretty low. And I’ve heard that NBC brass liked the premise of the Endemol USA-produced show and felt that it could do better with a stronger cast. “The success of the relationships formed on the first season of this series is a testament to the unique format of this show,” NBC’s president of alternative Paul Telegdy said. “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.” Love In The Wild, which will head to a new tropical location for Season 2, features single men and women who take part in challenges and quests while also looking for a mate.
