CBS’s summer reality shows Love Island and Big Brother both appear ready to go into production soon, with a major change for Love Island season 2.
For Big Brother 22 and Love Island 2, CBS says “we anticipate having those shows on this summer.” But there’s a question about when that is.
Two stories published this week about BB22 have opposite information about this summer’s version of Big Brother. Will the CBS reality show be back? What about Love Island season 2?
CBS announced the premiere date for Love Island USA’s second season, which will air in late spring/early summer, long before Big Brother premieres.

All Love Island USA episodes are now streaming for free, and the cast—plus narrator Matthew Hoffman—are reuniting.
CBS’ version of Love Island has ended its first season, revealing which couple viewers chose and who got or split $100,000. But that was the least-interesting part.
Love Island hasn’t been a hit, but it has helped bring CBS younger female viewers, and also is the network’s most-streamed show.
All 14 episodes of Love Island will be on Pop on Saturday, starting at 9 a.m.—just like the weekend marathons of Real World on MTV in the 1990s!
The drama is fine, but had a tendency to drag a little. The solution: More narrator, please!
Love Island premiered to very low ratings. But CBS executives seem hopeful it will grow over time, as the UK version did.
From the exceptionally well-chosen soundtrack to the cheeky, self-aware narration, Love Island had a lot of fun, something we don’t get too often from network reality TV.
Why is Love Island such a phenomenon in the UK? How has it affected its contestants? Will there be alcohol? Answers are in these must-read, pre-Love Island stories.
Meet the first 11 cast members—er, “Islanders”—who will be on the CBS version of Love Island.
CBS said its “fun, light-hearted” version of Love Island will have 22 episodes airing over five weeks.
