Summer is heating up and you know what that means: it’s time to return to Love Island. The new season of Love Island USA dropped last week, kicking off six weeks of steamy reality romance that you can stream from the comfort of your couch (with the AC blasting next to you). For Season 5 of the U.S. installment of the Love Island series, sexy singles are headed to a villa in Fiji to couple up against a gorgeous tropical backdrop and compete for $100,000. The newest season of the American spinoff is sure to be filled with plenty of drama, dramatically good looks and at least one big celebrity cameo (spoiler alert: it’s Ariana Madix!).

Ready to dive right into one of the steamiest reality shows of the summer? Here’s everything you need to know about the new season of Love Island USA, including where to stream, release schedule, who is on Love Island this year and more.

Where to stream Love Island in the US?

Starting at just $5.99 a month, a Peacock subscription is the only way to stream Love Island USA!
