MTV wants more of the Siesta Key TV show and the cable channel is hoping that viewers feel the same way. A reality show that follows a group of twenty-somethings on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Siesta Key has been a summer success for MTV. As a result the cable channel has ordered eight additional episodes of the series and plans to air the installments in the early part of 2018.
Here’s the MTV announcement:

What do you think? Did you watch the Siesta Key TV show this summer? Will you continue to watch the series this winter?
I missed the whole series and it only aired once on Monday nights sop hopefully MTV will stop being stingy with their episodes and air it multiple times.
