We propose a doubly holographic version of the semiclassical island formula for the entanglement negativity in the framework of the defect AdS/BCFT correspondence where the anti–de Sitter (AdS) bulk contains a defect conformal matter theory. In this context, we propose a defect extremal surface (DES) formula for computing the entanglement negativity modified by the contribution from the defect matter theory on the end-of-the-world brane. The equivalence of the DES proposal and the semiclassical island formula for the entanglement negativity is demonstrated in framework. Furthermore, in the time-dependent scenarios involving eternal black holes in the lower dimensional effective description, we investigate the time evolution of the entanglement negativity through the DES and the island formulas and obtain the analogs of the Page curves.
