Fox is rebooting its early 2000s unscripted competition series Paradise Hotel. 

The modern show will be produced by SallyAnn Salsano’s 495 Productions and Celia Taylor of Mentorn Media, the original creators of the format.

Paradise Hotel first aired on Fox in 2003, before being produced around the world in more than 18 countries. The second season of Paradise Hotel followed on Fox sister nets MyNetworkTV and Fox Reality Channel in 2008.

The format follows a group of singles who are given the chance to check into a luxurious tropical resort and check out with big cash. Each week, the contestants vote off one of their fellow residents to make room for a new guest. In a new twist, viewers at home can utilize social media to try and influence what happens on screen.

Paradise Hotel was a show ahead of its time, and this incredible team of producers plan to take it to the next level,” said Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox Broadcasting Company, in a statement. “The format allows for a delicious mix of love, drama and humor with a uniquely Fox twist. By using fresh interactive elements, it enables fans to orchestrate the show’s narrative, making it can’t-miss television for a new generation of viewers.”

Paradise Hotel will be executive produced by Salsano, Taylor and Becca Walker.

A premiere date for the reboot has yet to be announced.
