‘Island Life’ is an American reality television series by HGTV that serves a two pronged purpose. On one hand, it aims to help island lovers who long to move out of their landlocked homes and live surrounded by seas in breathtaking islands find their dream homes. On the other hand, the show also helps its island-loving viewers, who get to see exotic island locations and beautiful (and even affordable) homes in such destinations.
Directed by Brandon Williams, Dave Powitz, Carisse Moy, and Christopher Barnes, ‘Island Life’ first made its way to viewers’ screens in 2015. In the four years that have elapsed since then, the show has seen a whopping 15 seasons air. And, the good news for fans is that Season 16 is also on the cards.
Island Life Cast: Who’s in it?
Owing to it being a reality show, ‘Island Life’ does not have a fixed cast, and participants in the show typically consist of individuals, couples, and families looking to fulfill their dreams of moving into an island home. Even the presenters the episodes are not fixed, and the show has seen multiple hosts over the years.
Island Life Plot: What is it about?
As mentioned earlier, ‘Island Life’ is a reality television series that tries to prove to the world that anyone can go on to live in their dream homes on islands. Each episode of the show focuses on one individual/couple/family looking to abandon their monotonous city life and shift to an island. The show helps these dreams satiate their desire to live on an island by helping them find homes that fit every budget. From modest dwellings to extravagant resort-like homes, the series features a range of island houses to make every participant’s dreams come true.
The island locations featured in the show are mostly centered around America, and each of the showmakers find participants homes in their dream locations, which range from the most economical to extravagant and flamboyant places in Key West, Alaska, Maine’s Mount Desert Island, and the San Juan Islands in Washington, to name a few.
While we don’t know much about Season 12, what we do know is that the first episode focuses on a couple looking to leave their cramped apartment in Queens, New York, for a spacious and beautiful house mere steps away from the Atlantic Ocean in Long Beach, New York. In a similar fashion, subsequent episodes of Season 12 are expected to follow such families across America as they look to relocate away from the hustle and bustle of their city lives to their own oceanside paradises.
