Twofour and Motion Content Group have been commissioned by ITV2 to produce two additional seasons of the hit reality show Weekender as well as the tentatively titled spin-off series The Weekender Boat Party.

The Weekender Boat Party will look on as favorite and new reps work aboard a yacht as they tour party hotspots over the course of six hour-long episodes. Ibiza Weekender and Boat Party are being executive produced by Gyles Neville for Twofour and Melanie Darlaston for Motion Content Group. Air dates for all three seasons will be revealed at a later time.

Satmohan Panesar, commissioner for ITV2, stated: “There is only one Weekender and its ever-growing young audience are in for a treat when we set sail this summer and then return to Ibiza for more high jinx with our favorite group of reps.”

Neville noted: “We are delighted with Weekender’s continuing success and growing fan base—its unique down-to-earth characters continue to be engaging in a way that makes us all want to be a part of their holiday season—and with a Boat Party on board, the brand is even more accessible and aspirational than ever.”

Darlaston added: “With the reps taking to the high seas you can guarantee there will be plenty of mischief and drama! This new series will be a real treat for Weekender fans.”
