Three have announced that worldwide smash hit Love Island will be coming to New Zealand.

“Love Island takes the concept of ‘appointment viewing’ to a whole new level and has been smashing records on air along with creating unprecedented social media hype and audience engagement,” says MediaWorks Chief Content Officer, Andrew Szusterman.

“This show really is redefining the traditional television landscape, the likes of which New Zealand has not seen before.”

Love Island UK became the most talked about TV series on Twitter last year, with a total of 6.3 million tweets and 18 million likes.

Love Island UK was a worldwide smash hit.

TVNZ’s Heartbreak Island, which debuted on our screens last year and is currently in its second season, is a similar format to Love Island. But unlike Heartbreak Island, in which the couples compete for the cash, viewers decide the fate of Love Island couples.

But it’s not that straightforward. One is given the chance to share the money or walk away with it all for themselves. All’s fair in love and war, right?

In the months leading up to the debut of the New Zealand show, Three will be screening the full 2019 seasons of Love Island US, UK and Australia.
