Twofour and Motion Content Groupâ€™s successful Weekender brand is set to return for a seventh scorching season on ITV2.
Ibiza Weekender yet again proved to be essential viewing as it grew its loyal fan base among the younger viewers throughout this yearâ€™s run. With the destination hotspot of Ibiza ever popular, an extended 10 x 60â€™ run on the White Isle will follow some familiar rep faces along with a few new ones eager to learn the ropes on Europeâ€™s biggest party island.

Gyles Neville, Executive Producer, Twofour, said: â€śWeekender provides the ultimate escapism â€“ the warm characters and hot holiday destinations never fail to be an explosive combination. Weâ€™re delighted the funny, continuing soap stories of the reps and their holiday charges continue to be relevant and compelling for the audience.â€ť
Satmohan Panesar, ITV Commissioning Executive, said: â€śThis series continues to grow and its increasing popularity among our young adult audience is a reflection of ITV2′s strategy to build strong programme brands that are talked about and well watched.”
