Love Island Season 2 Preview
Get ready for all the romance and drama you know and love from Love Island when the second season kicks off with a two-hour premiere episode on Monday, August 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. After that, a new episode will air every night at 9 pm ET/PT, with a weekly recap episode airing from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Saturday night.
Note: Some nights there will be preemptions due to things like the Republican National Convention, so check your local listings to see if Love Island is on each night or not.
The show description teases that “after months spent in isolation and virtual dating, 11 singles prepare to find their perfect matches.” These “Islanders” will “embark on a summer of love, flirtation, drama and, ultimately, relationships; every few days, the islanders must couple up or risk being dumped and going home.”
The Islanders will be living in a villa on top of Caesar’s Entertainment’s boutique hotel The Cromwell in Las Vegas. Challenges abound with intriguing new islanders arriving and dramatic twists at every turn.
In addition to choosing their partners wisely, Islanders must also win the hearts of viewers who have the opportunity to shape events on screen and ultimately crown one lucky couple the winner, who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize.
Fans can truly immerse themselves in the experience by using the Love Island app for around-the-clock content, messages and all the gossip from inside the villa. Users get a say in who is hot and who is not, can stir things up by deciding who stays and who goes packing, and will receive exclusive updates straight to the palm of their hand.
As the health and safety of everyone involved in Love Island is the highest priority, ITV will follow specific health and safety protocols for COVID-19. All Las Vegas staff and crew working on the production and all cast participating will be within quarantined “bubbles” where they will undergo isolation before production begins and be tested prior to beginning work, and the cast will be tested prior to their participation.
They will also all be regularly tested throughout the season, as well as screened daily for symptoms. Crew and staff will be required to wear PPE and work in pods to enhance social distancing. Stringent and ongoing cleaning and disinfecting protocols in filming and production areas will be in place. In addition, COVID-19 compliance officers will be on staff to monitor and enforce all health and safety COVID-19 protocols.
Love Island airs every night at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS, with a two-hour weekly recap show airing Saturdays from 8 p.m. to 10 pm. ET/PT.
