For fans waiting for Fox's 'Fantasy Island' the wait is finally over, with the series all set to premiere. The show tells the story of a mysterious island and its equally mysterious stewardess. For all those who visit it, their wildest dreams turn into reality. But there is more to this paradise than meets the eye.

The series is a reboot of the 1977-1984 hit series by the same name, but with a twist. While the older version saw the iconic Ricardo Montalbán as Mr. Roarke, who oversaw all that went on in the island, this time around, it is his grandniece Elena Roarke, who is the keeper of secrets. Elena leaves her life in New York behind to take on the role of the stewardess on the island and bears the responsibility of showing guests that there is more to life than what they desire. Played by Roselyn Sanchez, the reboot has a lot to live up to, seeing just how successful the original was. Sanchez, however, has an impressive body of work that can vouch for her skills! If you're looking for other titles to check out, consider watching 'Roswell, New Mexico', 'The End', 'The Outpost' and 'The Flight Attendant'.
