Roselyn Sanchez to Star in 'Fantasy Island' Reboot on Fox

Roselyn Sanchez is heading back to TV!

The 48-year-old Devious Maids actress was signed on to star in Fox’s upcoming reboot of Fantasy Island, TheWrap reports.

Roselyn will be playing Elena Roarke, a descendant of Ricardo Montalbán’s character Mr. Roarke from the original series, which aired from 1977 to 1984 on ABC.

Elena is described as “sophisticated, insightful and always charming,” with a “calm exterior [that] masks the challenges of the responsibilities she has assumed as steward of this mysterious island.”

According to Fox’s description, “The reboot is a modern semi-anthology series that delves into the ‘what if’ questions, both big and small, that keep us awake at night. Each episode will tell emotional, provocative stories about people who walk in with a desire, but end up reborn to themselves through the magical realism of Fantasy Island.”

It has previously been announced that Kiara Barnes and John Gabriel Rodriquez will also appear in the Fantasy Island reboot.

The Fantasy Island reboot is expected to premiere on Fox on August 10th.
