One of the most-watched dating shows is back on TV for its fifth season with the return of Love Island USA. If this is your first time watching Love Island, here’s how it works. A group of 10 bombshell singles travels to a secluded villa in Fiji to find love. Shortly after arrival, the contestants, or “islanders,” will be forced to pair up and start a relationship with a fellow Islander.
To stay in the villa, the islanders must remain in a relationship while competing in games and challenges thrown their way. If an islander is dumped and cannot “re-couple,” they face the risk of elimination. With a $100,000 grand prize at stake, the winning couple will be determined by fan vote. Hosted by Sarah Hyland and narrated by Ian Stirling, Love Island USA season 5 premieres on July 18. Find out where and how to watch the popular dating series.
The fifth season of Love Island USA will stream on Peacock starting at 9 p.m. ET on July 18. For the first week, a new episode will air every night. After week one, Love Island USA will air new episodes from Thursday to Tuesday. Wednesday will be the lone night off.
Peacock requires a paid subscription to one of two plans: Premium and Premium Plus. Premium costs $5/month or $50/year. This tier includes ads and 80,000-plus hours of sports, movies, and TV. The other tier is Premium Plus, the ad-free plan that costs $10/month or $100/year. Premium Plus includes everything from Premium and allows customers to download and watch select titles offline. Before the premiere, catch up on Love Island season 4 by streaming all episodes on Peacock.
