MTV UK has renewed dating series Ex On The Beach for a second season, TVWise has learned.
Ex On The Beach, produced by independent production company Whizz Kid Entertainment, has been a ratings success since debuting on MTV UK in April. The series premiere ranks as MTV UK’s highest-ever rated series launch, while new episodes of Ex On The Beach frequently ranked number one in their time-slot in MTV’s target demo (16-34).
The pick up of a second season comes mere days after MTV UK handed a ninth season renewal to their flagship series Geordie Shore. Beyond the show’s success in the UK, Ex On The Beach has the distinction of being the first – and thus far only – UK commission to air on the US MTV network. The series has also aired to strong ratings in Australia, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Poland, Singapore, Malaysia, Mexico and Brazil.
“I’m absolutely thrilled that Ex on the Beach is returning”, said Kerry Taylor, SVP and General Manager of MTV UK. “The show has connected incredibly well with our target audience, which is reflected in the phenomenal TV ratings and noise on social media. With more of the same lined up for the new series, we can’t wait to get to work on it!”
