“With expert gameplay, adventure, and a new layer of strategy, the reimagined Deal or No Deal Island had fans on the edge of their seats, just like the original,” said Corie Henson, Executive Vice President, Unscripted Content, in a press release. “A huge thanks to our crew and the biggest gamer of them all, host Joe Manganiello. Together we’re thrilled to be back with another season that will be sure to test the contestants and the Banker’s limits.”
“It was incredible to see how audiences immediately took to the new format of Deal or No Deal Island, welcoming Joe Manganiello and the Banker’s guests into their homes and bringing new life to the iconic IP,” said Sharon Levy, Chief Executive Officer, Endemol Shine North America, in the release. “We're thrilled that NBC has picked up a second cycle and eagerly anticipate seeing how the Banker will physically test and mentally challenge a new season of contestants as they compete for a transformative jackpot.”

What is Deal or No Deal Island about?

Deal or No Deal Island transports 13 players to the elusive Banker’s private island, where he makes the rules and twists lie behind every palm tree.

In this series, the iconic briefcases containing a total of more than $200 million in prize money are hidden around the island. In each episode, players compete in daring challenges to secure the briefcases that will be used in that night’s game of Deal or No Deal. The player who snags the highest-value case gains immunity and gets to choose a fellow player to enter “The Temple.”
The chosen competitor must then play a high-intensity game of Deal or No Deal. If the player makes a bad deal and accepts an offer of a lesser value than what is in their chosen case, they are immediately eliminated. If the player makes a good deal and accepts an offer of a higher value than what is in their case, they gain the power to select whom to eliminate.

The winnings from each game of Deal or No Deal are added to a group pot that grows exponentially throughout the season. At the end of the season, the last player standing faces the Banker to potentially win the biggest prize in Deal or No Deal history.

However, the devious Banker is always watching and raising the stakes with tests of strategy and greed. Manganiello serves as the gaming liaison—an intermediary between the Banker and contestants—overseeing gameplay and helping navigate them through tough, life-changing decisions.
