Shipwrecked was a British reality television programme that aired on Channel 4's now defunct youth programming brand, T4 between 2000 and 2012. The original version ran for three series from 9 January 2000 to 19 December 2001 and was constructed as a social experiment, without a competitive format or prize.
The programme returned for four series from 8 January 2006 to 10 May 2009 in a new format, as Shipwrecked: Battle of the Islands. It featured two teams competing with each other for new members, with the largest team winning a cash prize at the end.
The show's final series began on 23 October 2011 on E4, entitled Shipwrecked: The Island. On 22 May 2018, Channel 4 confirmed that the series would return on E4 with filming taking place in the summer.
