Basic information and concept
Ibiza Weekender is a British reality series that chronicles the adventures of a group of young people enjoying themselves on the party island of Ibiza. The series is in fact a renamed continuation of the Magaluf Weekender that was shot in Mallorca for three series between 2013 and 2014, and was subsequently moved to Ibiza with the same format. It is written by Dom English, executive produced by Simon Cooper, Rob Lewis and Tom O`Brien and produced by Twofour. The current fifth series premiered on ITV2 on February 7, 2016 and is set to contain eight episodes.
The series is a weekly chronicle of the life of reps in Ibiza, their personal affairs as well as their interactions with their guests. The filming format is similar to that of Big Brother, with cameras installed practically everywhere – they have even been installed in the bedrooms for the second series. Led by the super-rep Imogen Townley, the guests will certainly enjoy their stay to the fullest possible extent with wild parties, sunny beaches and new acquaintances to be made.
Ratings and possible renewal
The last February episode of Ibiza Weekender scored 430,000 viewers. The series is supposed to be completely unscripted, and thus certainly satisfies the appetite for a voyeuristic glimpse into someone`s “real” life. Amanda Stavri, ITV Entertainment Commissioner, expressed the network`s satisfaction with The Weekender format, as it “always delivers plenty of laughter and drama”. The format is definitely popular enough to be renewed for another run, however, no official announcements have been made yet.
