She captioned it on Instagram, “I got a text!!!! And it’s a juicy one! I can’t wait to be your new host of @loveislandusa #hostesswiththemostess #loveisabeach @peacocktv.”

The season will also be available on Peacock instead of Paramount+. Deadline reports the platform ordered two seasons of the reality show and 80 episodes. British comedian Iain Stirling is replacing Matthew Hoffman as the show’s narrator.

Vandenberg responded to the news of the new show on Instagram. She posted clips and pictures of herself on the show and revealed why the Modern Family actor took her place in the caption.

“I was cast to be the host of CBS’s version of Love Island and we had 3 amazing seasons!” she wrote. “Unfortunately, CBS didn’t pick it up for a fourth season. The show is now going to Peacock and it being a different network they are rebranding it completely, including a new narrator and new host. Though I am truly sad that I will no longer be a part of the show, I’m so happy for my friend @sarahhyland you’re gonna kill it! :)  To sum this up, I just wanted to come here to let all of you know how much I have loved and appreciated your support over the last 3 seasons of @loveislandusa.”
