‘Love Island’: Meet the Season 2 Cast

Love Island Season 2 is almost here. A new batch of islanders is looking for love on the CBS series — only this time around they’re not actually on an island. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, filming for the show is happening in Las Vegas rather than Fiji. But despite the change in location, viewers can still expect this season’s single to bring all the drama. Love Island Season 2 premieres Monday, August 24 on CBS.
