ICYMI or want to relive the fun, flirting and flings, the entire first season of LOVE ISLAND is available to stream for free on CBS.com and the CBS mobile app, and is also available across all other connected device platforms via the CBS All Access subscription service. In addition, the full season is now available on-demand across traditional and virtual MVPD partners.

LOVE ISLAND features a group of single “Islanders” who come together in a stunning tropical villa, ready to embark on a summer of love, friendships and, ultimately, relationships. Every few days the Islanders must couple up – those who fail to find a partner to couple up with risk being dumped from the island. Islanders are on the lookout for romance, but the road to love doesn’t always run smoothly. Challenges abound with new Islander arrivals and dramatic twists as friendships and relationships form. In addition to choosing their partners wisely, Islanders must also win the hearts of viewers who have the opportunity to shape events on screen and ultimately crown one lucky couple the winner, who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize.

LOVE ISLAND expanded CBS’ 2019 summer audience, reaching a much younger and more female demographic. At the same time, the series made a big digital impact as the Network’s most-streamed new show on CBS All Access and CBS.com in over a year, and as a continually trending social media topic following each night’s broadcast.

LOVE ISLAND is produced by ITV Entertainment, an ITV America company. David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg, Simon Thomas, Ben Thursby-Palmer, Jessica Castro, Richard Foster and Chet Fenster are executive producers. The series is based on a format owned by ITV Studios and Motion Content Group, and distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
