The new dating series will return for Season 2.
August 1, 2019
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.
Love Island is a bit of a change for the typically older-skewing network. While it does air Big Brother during the summers, CBS is still looking to attract a younger overall audience. Also, the show airs five nights a week, which isn't typically done for a prime time series. Ratings-wise, its overnight numbers have been a little on the weak side, though it does rank as the most-streamed new show on CBS.com and CBS All Access in over a year.
Look for Season 2 of Love Island in the summer of 2020.

Another empty headed show more in line with a Kardashian lifestyle. Of course it will be renewed to carry on the dumbing down of America....and stuck with Trump too. Sorry

I am disappointed but not surprised by this. Cheap shows to carry every night of the week. Sad tv has gotten to this. Everyone who complained before by summer reruns it can always get worse. This garbage! Bring the reruns back if all you are gonna run is this trash.

Americans really are the dumbest of all nationalities... and I'm one of them. How this stuff gets put on the air.. then renewed season after season just mystifies me. I can only assume it's cheap to produce and there are enough viewers addicted to opiates to buy into it while they are high.

Mindless Moronic Writers renewing more garbage. Maybe we need an EMP to get rid of all the garbage on TV. Are the TV Writers all related?

I am disappointed if this is the future of television. The reality genre seems to be one that is best enjoyed after getting some alcohol in your system. That must mean that the people who watch these shows do it with a beer or glass of wine in hand.

You have got to be F-ing kidding me. I guess the dumbing down of America continues
