The summer of love has already begun on Love Island U.K. with the launch of Season 8, and fans of the stateside version will soon be able to join in on the fun when Love Island USA returns for Season 4.
Following the success of the British dating series, a U.S. edition of Love Island launched on CBS in 2019. The show has introduced viewers to stars like Shannon St. Clair, Caro Viehweg, Mackenzie Dipman, and Johnny Middlebrooks during its initial three-season run.
As the summer season begins, a new group of islanders is getting ready to make their marks on the Love Island USA villa — but many things have changed ahead of Season 4.
From a network shift, to the upcoming premiere date, to the new villa, host, and (new to the U.S.) narrator, we have you covered when it comes to everything you need to know about Love Island USA Season 4.
When is the 'Love Island USA' Season 4 premiere date? Mark your calendars.
Less than a year after Korey Gandy and Olivia Kaiser won Season 3, the official Love Island USA Instagram account confirmed the premiere date for the 2022 season.
"Swipe to see the steamy news," the caption of the June 8 post read.
As the post confirmed, the upcoming fourth season of Love Island USA will officially kick off on Tuesday, July 19, 2022.
'Love Island USA' is moving to Peacock for Season 4, and the islanders will live in a brand new villa.
While longtime Love Island USA fans can still expect to see a cast of eligible islanders look for love on Season 4, many other aspects of the show will be different.
Instead of airing on CBS, the fourth season will be available to stream exclusively on Peacock. This change means that Peacock subscribers will be able to stream new episodes at their leisure, instead of waiting for them to air on primetime television. It also will allow for more explicit moments and challenges to air without censors.
Six new episodes will drop on Peacock each week, so viewers will have plenty of opportunities to really get to know the islanders.
The filming location has changed on each season, and the same is true for Season 4. While Seasons 1 through 3 were shot at luxury homes in Fiji, Las Vegas, and Hawaii, respectively, Season 4 will tape at a villa in California. The cast list for the fourth season has yet to be revealed.
Sarah Hyland will host the new season of 'Love Island USA,' and Iain Stirling will narrate.
Less than a month after Peacock confirmed the premiere date, the streamer shared a change in the hosting line-up as well. Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland will take over the duties as the host on the upcoming fourth season. Actress Arielle Vandenberg served as the emcee for the first three seasons.
Iain Stirling, who is the hilarious voice of the U.K. version, will narrate the U.S. edition as well. He's taking over the reigns from Matthew Hoffman, who did the voiceover work on the CBS show.
In another exciting pre-season reveal, Peacock confirmed that the show has already been renewed for Season 5. Fans can, therefore, expect to see plenty more from the USA-based islanders in the future.
How will the islanders fare during the couplings and re-couplings? You'll have to tune in starting on July 19 to find out.
The first three seasons of Love Island USA are available to stream on Paramount Plus now. Love Island U.K. can be found on Hulu.
