It looks like we’ll be getting Love Island this summer, just a bit later than originally planned.

Season 1 of Love Island is based on the popular U.K. version of the show and it was hosted by Arielle Vandenberg and it took place in Fiji. Love Island has singles arrive at the island and asked to couple up or they have to leave the villa. Each week the islanders face challenges and new arrivals come to try and also couple up.

Love Island aired five nights a week and it was renewed for a second season by CBS last August.

Season 2 of the U.S. Love Island was supposed to air on May 21, but due to the coronavirus production was put on hold. CBS announced that pre-production of the show has started and that it won’t take place on an island this year.

According to sources, the show is shooting at a Las Vegas hotel and production crew and contestants will be required to quarantine before shooting begins and they’ll be tested throughout production. To ensure social distancing, the crew members will work from pods.

CBS is hoping to air the second season of the show later this summer, which means that we’ll be getting two reality TV shows from the network in late summer—Big Brother also has a late summer premiere date.
