News broke less than a week of FBoy Island’s season finale that the highly addicting reality show would be back for a second season.

Previous reality TV dating shows, such as Netflix’s Love is Blind and Too Hot to Handle, aired reunion episodes where cast members can provide an update on where they are following the show’s wrapped filming. So, if this is true for FBoy Island’s season one cast, we know we will finally find out the truth about CJ’s relationship status.
