The Islanders include a shopping channel model, a billing coordinator and go-go dancer, an auditor and two personal trainers, and they all range in age from 22 to 28.

Love Island's second season will air nightly and include a Saturday episode from 8-10PM ET/PT entitled Love Island: More to Love, which will feature memorable moments from a week's worth of episodes as well as exclusive interviews with cast members and never-before-seen footage.

Actress and comedian Arielle Vandenberg will reprise her role as host of Love Island, with Matthew Hoffman serving as the narrator.

The Islanders will film the new season at a villa on top of Caesars Entertainment's boutique hotel, The Cromwell, in Las Vegas. The cast members will have the opportunity to date and get to know one another in-person after spending months in isolation and virtual dating.

Love Island's format is a bit of a cross between Big Brother, Temptation Island, Bachelor in Paradise, and Paradise Hotel.

CBS' American adaption of the U.K.'s Love Island -- which airs six night a week overseas -- aired its first season last summer and features single Islanders trying to choose romantic partners while also winning the heart of home viewers, who have the opportunity to shape events that unfold on the show.

The Islanders are required to couple-up every few days, and those who fail to find a partner risk being dropped from the show and replaced with newcomers.

CBS announced it had ordered an American version of Love Island back in August 2018, shortly after British television wrapped its extremely popular fourth season of the show.

A marathon of Love Island's first season -- which was 22 episodes -- will air over the course of two days on Saturday, August 22 and Sunday, August 23 beginning at 11AM ET/PT both days on MTV2.
