By Christopher Rocchio, 08/14/2008
Fox Reality Channel announced it has renewed Solitary for a third season.
Dubbed Solitary 3.0, the reality competition series will continue to follow a format similar to its first and second seasons and put nine contestants through a series of "grueling psychological tests" that grow more challenging as each episode passes. The last person standing will receive a $50,000 cash prize.
In addition, Fox Reality Channel stated Solitary 3.0 "promises to be the most intense series yet with a new twist to elevate the tension and keep viewers talking."
"Solitary and Solitary 2.0 were trendsetters in reality television," said Fox Reality Channel programming executive Bob Boden.
"Solitary 3.0 will push the limits of human tolerance even further and allow our viewers to go along for the wild ride while, luckily for them, watching comfortably from their homes."
Solitary 3.0 is currently in pre-production. It is executive produced and co-created by Andrew Golder and Lincoln Hiatt.
In addition to the third-season renewal, Fox Reality Channel announced ShineReveille International as its distribution partner to license Solitary's format and finished episodes worldwide.
"Solitary is a perfect format for the international market as it is both completely relatable and can be managed with the precise financial model that is sought after by foreign buyers," said ShineReveille International president Chris Grant.
"We are thrilled to make Fox Reality Channel a strategic partner given their incredible track record in creating ground breaking alternative content."
