Love Island Moves to Peacock in the U.S.


Peacock has greenlit two new seasons and more than 80 episodes of Love Island, moving the dating show from its previous home on CBS.

The unscripted reality romance and competition series sees glamorous singles embark on a search for love while living together in a beautiful villa. In the U.S., it ran for three seasons on CBS.

Love Island is produced by ITV Entertainment, an ITV America company. The series is based on a format owned by ITV Studios and Motion Content Group and distributed by ITV Studios.

“As we continue to make Peacock a destination for must-watch original programming, partnering with a global powerhouse like ITV enables us to build on their internationally beloved formats to attract all new fans to the platform,” said Susan Rovner, chairman of entertainment content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming.

Jenny Groom, executive VP of entertainment unscripted content, added, “Love Island is a highly addictive dating format that is primed for a streaming service like Peacock, where we can push boundaries and bring viewers steamy and dramatic twists. The series took pop culture by storm after the U.K. format found fans across the world, and we are thrilled to be able to bring an all-new version to Peacock this summer, anchoring our unscripted slate.”

“This really is an unprecedented deal for an unscripted brand,” said ITV America CEO David George. “Peacock and NBCU are the perfect home for Love Island because of their strategy to grow the show, utilizing the greater NBCU television portfolio and other platforms to help propel the series. That dedication, coupled with a two-season commitment on Peacock, sealed the deal. We’re incredibly excited to elevate the show through a bold new collaboration.”
