‘Love Island Games’ 2023 cast, premiere date, and how to watch

A new reality spin off is headed our way soon.

The answer to an entertainment void brought on by the WGA and SAG strikes is officially upon us, in the form of the latest Love Island spin-off.

Love Island Games was announced in April of 2023, and the reality rematch quickly became the talk of the town. The spin off aims to bring established Love Island favorites back together for a second chance at love. Since the stars of the upcoming program are already established favorites among longtime Love Island viewers, the show has an audience baked in from the start — and that audience has questions. Fans of the drama-soaked Love Island format are submitting their guesses for who is headed back for a romantic rematch, and pondering just when — and how — they can enjoy the new reality competition.

Love Island Games cast

It took several months after the announcement of Love Island Games for its incoming cast to be named, but once those names dropped, fans were overjoyed. A number of favorites are making a return for the reality spin-off’s first season, including longtime presenter Maya Jama, who’s set to serve as host — fresh off her stint hosting series nine of Love Island.

Returning favorites from several different Love Island iterations are appearing in season 1 of Love Island Games, with former contestants from the U.K., U.S., and Australia — among others — coming together for the first time. They’ll be joined by Jama, a favorite among U.K. viewers, and fellow across-the-pond staple Iain Stirling, who’s returning to once again lend his humor to the popular show.

A total of 25 participants are likewise set to return for Love Island Games, ranging in age from 22 to 30. Among them are a number of longtime favorites, which all but guarantees success for the fresh spin-off. Listed below are each of the returning contestants, two of whom will walk away from season 1 of Love Island Games with the grand prize.

Love Island Games premiere date

It didn’t start filming until September, but Love Island Games still, miraculously, released in 2023. The new reality favorite debuted on Nov. 1, 2023, offering up fresh episodes six days a week.

Where to watch Love Island Games

Love Island Games is premiering as a Peacock exclusive, which makes viewing options limited, but easily accessible. Anyone with a subscription to NBC’s popular streaming service can catch episodes as they drop, but anyone avoiding that Peacock subscription price — which comes in at between $6 and $12 a month — won’t be able to enjoy the latest Love Island spin-off.
