Love Island features a group of single “Islanders” who come together in a stunning setting, ready to embark on a summer of love, friendships, and, ultimately, relationships… and the next chapter of the show is looking for South Africans!

 

Western Cape, South Africa (06 November 2020) – ITV Studios’ power format Love Island continues its global expansion and reaches its 20th territory.

The first season of Love Island South Africa is set to launch on M-Net 101 on DStv in February 2021. The dating reality series will be recorded in the Western Cape and produced by Rapid Blue.

Nkateko Mabaso, M-Net CEO, says, “We at M-Net are ecstatic about partnering with ITV Studios and joining this global brand as we launch Love Island South Africa. This a continuation of M-Net’s strategy to provide premium quality shows in line with global trends.” 

Maarten Meijs, President Global Entertainment, ITV Studios, adds, “The multi-channel phenomenon is having a fantastic year, travelling the world at a rapid pace. We can’t wait to see how this local adaptation will find its way to the South African viewers.” 

Love Island features a group of single “Islanders” who come together in a stunning setting, 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 winners, who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize of half a million rand.

Love Island is owned by ITV Studios and Motion Content Group Ltd and is distributed internationally by ITV Studios. To be part of the summer of love, enter Love Island South Africa by clicking here. Entries open early on Sunday 8 November.
