Love Island host Arielle Vandenberg has teased how the show's upcoming third season will have "a different vibe" and absolutely "everything" a fan could ask for, including more steamy moments than ever before.
Love Island is premiering its third season Wednesday, July 7 at 9:30PM ET/PT on CBS, and Arielle, 34, toldUs Weekly, "It's going to be beautiful and romantic and sexy and everything you want."
The 12 new Islanders will search to find their perfect love matches in a sequestered villa that is moving from Las Vegas, where Season 2 was filmed, to Hawaii.
"I don't see how you can't fall in love here," Arielle said.
"My fiance [Matt Cutshall is] with me and we watched the sunset last night together, and I was like, 'Is this the most romantic thing we've ever done?'... So I'm guessing that these islanders are definitely going to feel some type of way."
Arielle revealed some fan-favorite challenges "are coming back for sure" but Love Island's new season will also surprise with "fun, new challenges" as well.
The show's Casa Amor twist will be back, and if viewers can't get enough of Love Island on TV, 15 hours of extra content will be available on the ViacomCBS streaming service Paramount+.
The footage has been deemed "too hot for broadcast" and will include "unfiltered glimpses into the villa and fiery episodes," according to CBS.
Arielle elaborated, "For Paramount+, you're going to get some extra steam. So if there's something that we couldn't show on the broadcast, it will be on Paramount+."
"So there's lots of fun, new, exciting things to check out on there as well," she added.
"I can't wait for [the streaming-only content] because I'm like, 'Oh, if we can't show it on broadcast, but we can show it on Paramount+, it's gotta be good.'"
After its premiere, Love Island's third season will air new episodes on Thursday, July 8 and Friday, July 9 from 9-10PM ET/PT followed by a broadcast on Sunday, July 11 from 9-11PM ET/PT.
After its first week on the air, Love Island will air one-hour episodes Tuesday through Friday at 9PM ET/PT.

In addition, Love Island will air on Sunday nights from 9-11PM ET/PT for the remainder of the season.
Love Island -- which airs six night a week in the U.K. -- will feature a group of single "Islanders" hoping to find friendship, love and also win the heart of home viewers, who will have the opportunity to shape events that will unfold on the show by voting on the Love Island app.
The Islanders will be required to couple-up every few days, and those who fail to find a romantic partner will risk being dumped from the island.
Challenges and dramatic twists come about as the Islanders form alliances and relationships and friendships are developed in an effort to win a lasting relationship as well as the $100,000 grand cash prize.
Although Love Island has struck up many happy couples, their relationships haven't lasted.
