It’s June, which means it’s officially time for another season of Love Island! The new season of Love Island premieres on ITV2 in the UK during the first week of the month. Below, you can find out how to watch Love Island UK Season 8 in the United States.

‘Love Island UK’ Season 8 Release Date

Love Island UK premieres on Monday, June 6. As mentioned, you can watch the new season in the UK on ITV 2 at 9 p.m. GMT. New episodes of the series will air each day of the week (Sunday-Friday) except on Saturdays. Usually, a recap of what happened during the week, along with unaired footage, is released on Saturdays during the season.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to watch Love Island UK Season 8 in the US on Monday, June 6, but we do have information on how to watch the new season in the US.

How to watch ‘Love Island UK’ Season 8 in the US

Love Island UK Season 8 will stream on Hulu in the US. That’s where you will be able to stream the new episodes from this season.

At the time of publishing, Hulu has not announced when the first episodes of season 8 will be available to stream. For previous seasons, including season 7, Hulu added new episodes in the US exactly two weeks after they aired in the UK. If that happens for season 8, and we are expecting it to, we should see the Love Island UK Season 8 premiere on Hulu on Monday, June 20. Then, a new episode will likely be added to Hulu every day until the end of the season.

If all goes accordingly, the season finale will be released on Hulu two weeks after it airs on ITV in the UK.

Hulu also happens to be the streaming home of the previous seven seasons of Love Island UK in the US. If you’d like to get caught up on future seasons, you can get started on Hulu right now. There are so many episodes in each season! It’ll definitely take you a while.
