U.S. version of the British show 'Love Island' where a group of singles come to stay in a villa in Fiji, for a few weeks and have to couple up with one another. Over the course of those weeks, they face a public vote and might be eliminated from the show. Other islanders join and try to break up the couples. Sometimes love blossoms, but sometimes all the couples do is fight. Will it be love, friendship or hate? and must win over not only each other, but viewers, to take home the cash prize.
CBS announced today that Love Island has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes near the end of the dating series' freshman run, which is slated to wrap up next week.
Based on the British smash hit, the reality show brings a group of single "Islanders" together in a picturesque villa on a tropical island as they look for love. During their summer of romance, the Islanders pair up when they have a connection and can be voted off when they don't. New singles also periodically arrive to stir things up. Viewers participate as well by voting using an app, with the ability to shape events that occur on the island. Eventually one lucky couple is crowned the winner with the chance to take home a cash prize - and possibly love.
Look for Season 2 of Love Island in the summer of 2020.
