‘Love Island’ will return twice in 2023 with winter and summer editions

ITV has confirmed that “Love Island” is set to return for its winter and summer editions in 2023.

The show, which was produced by ITV and Lifted Entertainment (part of ITV Studios), is a cash cow for the broadcaster, with the 16-34-year-old demographic setting a night on ITV2 for Season 8 (pictured above) this year.

A winter edition will air in the new year, with a new batch of contestants traveling to South Africa for some fun in the sun. The traditional summer version in Mallorca will follow about four months later.

The series, which was relaunched in its current version in 2015, has been streamed 74 million times on ITVs online platforms and has silenced many new celebrities, weddings and even children.

Tragically, the show has also been linked to three deaths, with two former contestants and former host Caroline Flack dying by suicide. In the wake of the tragedies, ITV has beefed up duty-of-care protocols, which guarantee contestants access to treatment and financial management advice as well as social media training after spending time at the villa.
