Love Island UK doubles down on 2023 romance
It's Winter in South Africa, Summer in Mallorca.
UK dating series Love Island has announced two series for 2023.
Love Island‘s Winter season will head to South Africa while a Summer season will return to Mallorca for another eight week run.
The launch is now officially the biggest programme of the year in Britain in the 16-34 year old demographic. The launch episode has been streamed 7.5 million times and the series as a whole has been streamed 74 million times.
Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller, ITV2, said: “Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favourite 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, said: “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.”
Love Island UK screens in Australia on 9Now.
