ITV and Lifted Entertainment have revealed that there will be two new seasons of Love Island coming to ITV2 and ITVX in 2023.

The first new season of Love Island will kick off in the new year with a fresh batch of Islanders heading to South Africa. Later, in summer 2023, the series will return to Mallorca for another eight-week run.

The current season, airing across ITV2 and ITV Hub, launched to a consolidated 5 million viewers across all devices, making it the highest launch since 2019. Consolidated data also shows that the launch is the biggest program of the year for the 16-34 demographic.

Paul Mortimer, director of reality commissioning and controller of ITV2, said: “Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favorite talking point across the summer, and we’re always blown away by the show’s ongoing impact and talkability amongst our younger audience. So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show.”

Mike Spencer, executive producer at Lifted Entertainment, added: “After eight brilliant series, we are excited to be serving up two helpings of love in 2023 by kicking off in January at a stunning new villa in South Africa. We can look forward to more romances, bromances and everything in between as we embark on another epic year of love.”
