There’s more to tell where Zoe and Carter are concerned.

We have some great news for fans of The Bold and the Beautiful alum Kiara Barnes (ex-Zoe). If you’ve been staying connected to the actress on the FOX reboot of Fantasy Island then we can tell you there will be more to come since the series has been renewed for Season 2 in 2022. But wait, that’s not all… Our sister site Deadline has learned that the network will also air a two-hour holiday special on Tuesday, December 21, at 8 pm, titled “Welcome to the Snow Globe.”

Of the renewal Barnes stated, “Thank you so much everyone! What an incredible opportunity it was to shoot the first season, can’t wait to do it all again.”

With Zoe having time away to think about her past mistakes, including wanting Zende while with Carter, this could be the perfect opportunity for some added drama, considering Carter and Katie appear to be getting very close — and we all know what that means in daytime… some love in the afternoon could be on the horizon soon. But if Zoe returns, will her presence lure Carter’s thoughts away from Katie back to Zoe and what could have been?

Then there’s Zoe’s sister Paris, who is currently hot and heavy with Zende. Sisters or not, we know Zoe’s return could bring out the green-eyed monster in Paris — and we say, bring it!

Be sure to share your thoughts on a possible recast with us in the comment section.

It will be interesting to see what the new season of Fantasy Island brings for Barnes’ Ruby. And even though winter is approaching, on the island, things will surely be heating up!
