PEOPLE previously confirmed that season 2, originally scheduled to shoot overseas and premiere May 21, will now be shot under quarantine in Las Vegas due to the pandemic. (The first season was taped at a villa in Fiji.) Production company ITV Entertainment confirmed that the show will follow "specific health and safety protocols for COVID-19." The staff, crew and cast will undergo isolation before production begins and be tested prior to beginning work, as well as regularly throughout the season. They will be screened daily for symptoms. Crew and staff will be required to wear PPE and work in pods to enhance social distancing, and cleaning and disinfecting measures will be in place. In addition, COVID-19 compliance officers will be on staff to monitor and enforce health and safety protocols. The reality show is based on the wildly popular U.K. format, which is available on Hulu. It begins with a group of single Islanders who come together in a villa where their every move is monitored, Big Brother-style. Every few days, they must couple up (sharing beds!), and those who fail to find a partner risk being dumped from the island. Challenges abound with new Islander arrivals, and ultimately one lucky couple is crowned the winners, walking away with a cash prize. Season 7 of the British version, originally set to shoot on location in Mallorca and premiere this summer, was postponed in May to 2021 due to the outbreak. Love Island season 2 premieres Aug. 24 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
