Love Island season 2 start time, channel

It's time for Love Island season 2, beginning at 8 p.m. ET tonight (Monday, Aug. 24) on CBS.

Ready for steamy romance in the bubble? It's time to watch Love Island season 2 online. Yes, the CBS dating show is back, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Not even a worldwide disease can stop hot young singles from coupling up.

But in light of the pandemic, Love Island USA is switching things up in season 2. It is being filmed in a bubble at Caesars Entertainment's boutique hotel The Cromwell in Las Vegas, instead of a resort in Fiji. 

The Love Island season 2 cast and crew have been isolated and tested prior to filming and there will be regular testing as production continues. Compliance officers will be on hand to make sure everyone remains safe. The protocols are similar to Big Brother 2020.

Love Island USA is a spinoff of the UK series of the same name. A group of single Islanders gather together in a tropical villa and must pair off with a partner to stay on the island. At the end, one couple wins $100,000. In season 2, that was Zac Mirabelli and Elizabeth Weber, who split the cash prize.

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Love Island season 2 online. Plus, check out a trailer below:
