Bear Grylls is back on our screens for a new season of The Island, and this time there’s treasure involved.

Under the new styling of Treasure Island, the show kicked off on Channel 4 back on Sunday, September 8th. And since its release, fans are hailing it as the most interesting and fascinating study of behaviour on the series yet. It’s more Lord of the Flies than ever!

But what is in store for next year?

The Island 2020

Each season of The Island has seen the format change.

The show has pitted genders, wealth brackets and ages against one another across five series, with series 6 introducing the Treasure Island twist.

And it looks like Treasure Island isn’t going anywhere soon, as the 2020 will continue with the new format.

So far, all we know about Treasure Island is that “a significant amount of money” will be dropped on the abandoned island. Considering 2019 saw 100k hidden, it could be stepped up again for 2020!
