The Peacock’s top-rated reality competition series returns this summer. Love Island USA Season 5 premieres Tuesday, July 18, with new episodes appearing six days a week, the streaming platform announced Wednesday.
Along with the release date comes a raunchy promotional video for the season. See a group of swimsuit-clad singles bringing the mayhem Love Island USA the “headquarters” in the teaser above, narrated by franchise mainstay Iain Stirling.
Set in Fiji, Love Island USA Season 5 will “feature a new group of hot singles looking for love in a beautiful villa,” Peacock teases. “Throughout their stay in a tropical oasis, the islanders will band together to face crushing new challenges and twists bigger than ever before. Temptations will rise and drama will arise as new “bombshells” arrive throughout the season, forcing the islanders to decide whether they want to stay with their current partners or hook up with someone new. The islanders will also be at the mercy of viewers at home, who will vote to determine who has one more chance at love and who leaves the villa heartbroken and empty-handed.”
The series is produced by ITV Entertainment, an ITV America company. David George, Adam Sher, Simon Thomas, Ben Thursby-Palmer, Andy Cadman, Iona Mackenzie and Claudine Parrish are executive producers, along with Tom Gould, Richard Cowles, Mike Spencer, Richard Foster and Chet Fenster. Island of Love is based on a format owned by Lifted Entertainment and GroupM Motion Entertainment and distributed by ITV Studios.
Love Island USA Season 4 ended in August, with viewers choosing Zeta Morrison and Timmy Pandolfi as the winners. The season was set in California rather than the Fiji of season 5 and featured a $100,000 grand prize for its winning couple. Modern family alum Sarah Hyland took over as host in season 4. It is not yet confirmed if he will return as host for season 5.
