Another series of winter Love Island is coming in 2023, after the success of the 2020 series based in South Africa. 

Love Island 2022 is in full swing, bringing all the drama from surprise dumpings to the shock return of ex-islander Adam Collard (opens in new tab). And fans of the iconic dating show won't have to wait long for another dose of villa romance once the season draws to a close after the final later this summer. 

ITV bosses have confirmed that there will be two seasons of the show in 2023, starting off with the second round of the winter version kicking off in January.

Confirming the epic news, Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller, ITV2, said, "Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favourite talking point across the summer, and we’re always blown away by the show’s ongoing impact and talkability amongst our younger audience.

"So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show."
