This new season will push boundaries like never before with unpredictable twists and turns and unexpected surprises, creating the ultimate recipe for Summer fun - only on Peacock.
❤️🔥 Peacock Original LOVE ISLAND USA, from ITV Entertainment, will be hotter than ever as Islanders couple up in new surroundings where challenges will excite and bombshells will be dropped. Throughout their stay, temptations will rise and drama will ensue as Islanders are forced to decide if they want to remain with their current partners or "recouple" with someone new. Islanders will also be at the mercy of viewers at home who will vote to determine who gets another shot at love and who leaves the villa heartbroken and empty-handed.
❤️🔥 Fan favorite UK comedian Iain Stirling will continue his role as narrator marking this new season on Peacock as the first time Iain lends his iconic voice to the US version of LOVE ISLAND. Filming on the California coast, LOVE ISLAND USA is an unscripted reality romance and competition series where sexy singles go on a search for love while living together in a beautiful villa.
