Because we ALL deserve our Love Island fix.

Eek! There's only one more week before Love Island 2019 begins on June 3, and it's already set to be the best yet. ITV released the first images of the Love Island cast yesterday (May 27) and whilst we Google their Instagram accounts, ages and shoe sizes, it's left us wondering how Love Island fans can get in on the action outside the UK.

If you haven't had a chance to watch the cult British show just yet, um, where have you been!? It's got everything you could ever need – romance, challenges, eye candy and heaps of drama.

Basically, a bunch of single people are thrown into a villa all summer and we get the chance to watch them fall in love. Of course, it's not quite as easy as it sounds. At the end, one couple (who is chosen by the public) gets a chance to win £50,000 and split the cash or steal it.

The show is a big hit in the UK, but you might be wondering how do I watch Love Island in the US?

Well, here's some great news for Love Island fans across the pond. You'll be able to watch Love Island from the US on Hulu! The series was previously on Netflix but after all the episodes were wiped, US fans were left worrying what they would do without their fix.

Thankfully, the TV Gods have spoken and seasons 1 to 3 are available right now on Hulu. Season 4 is on its way soon too, so prepare for a serious binge, and that means Season 5 is next. However, it does mean that whilst the UK is watching Season 5, US viewers will have to wait a little longer for it to be on Hulu.

In the meantime, though, US viewers can fill their time with the new Love Island USA which is coming to CBS in July. CBS confirmed they would be bringing the much-loved programme to the US audience after seeing the success of the UK, Australia, Germany and Sweden versions.


Unlike the UK Islanders, who stay in a luxury villa in Spain, the US contestants will be jetting off to Fiji. FIJI!?! Love Island USA will kick off on July 9 at 8 PM ET/PT.

"As the buzziest reality show in the UK, Love Island has won the hearts of viewers across the pond as well as around the world, creating appointment viewing and fanfare for audiences everywhere," CBS said in a statement.

"We are thrilled to bring our version of this cultural phenomenon to CBS. This fun, light-hearted series is like watching your favorite romantic comedy five nights a week!"


Even more Love Island? Yep, we're not turning that down.
