It's on USA, but you don't need cable to watch.

Ready for a straycation? It's time to watch Temptation Island season 3 online. The USA reality TV show is back with four new couples who join Temptation Island 2021 to test the strength of their relationships by living separately and mingling with sexy singles. Will the couples decide to reaffirm their commitment to each other — or will they be tempted away?

Temptation Island season 3 was delayed, like many other TV shows, by the coronavirus pandemic. Filming was supposed to take place in Maui in March 2020, but was pushed back to September. The cast and crew formed a bubble and followed strict health guidelines set by the state of Hawaii.

In fact, as host Mark L. Wahlberg explained to TV Insider, the production bubble ended up being a plus for everyone within it. 

"From the cast standpoint, once they moved into the villas and started their life there, I think it was a relief," he said. "They were able to live as if there wasn’t a raging pandemic out there."

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Temptation Island season 3 online. Plus, check out this sneak peek:

Temptation Island season 3 couples: Meet the cast

Temptation Island season 3's cast features four couples at a turning point in their relationships. Here are their photos and bios from USA:

Chelsea Orcutt and Thomas Gipson

Current City: West Hollywood, CA
Chelsea: Age 29, Marketing Coordinator
Thomas: Age 37, Investment Trader
Dating: 1 Year

Introduced by a mutual friend, Thomas started dating Chelsea after he slid into her DMs. Together for over a year, they both agree that when they are alone, it's smooth sailing, but anytime they're in a social situation, Thomas' natural charm and flirtatious nature kick in and Chelsea's jealousy and possessiveness go through the roof. Thomas has been commitment-phobic in the past. In fact, Chelsea is his first genuinely serious relationship and there's no question that his history feeds into her insecurities. Although Thomas wants to put Chelsea's fears of infidelity to rest, he also wants her to learn to accept him for the social, outgoing person he is, rather than expecting him to dim his light. Will Chelsea's worst fears come true on Temptation Island?

Erica Washington and Kendal Kirkland,

Current City: Los Angeles, CA
Erica: Age 24, Personal Assistant
Kendal: Age 26, Business Owner
Dating: 2 Years

Erica and Kendal have been dating for two and half years and while she is confident that he is the man for her, Kendal still questions if Erica is the one. As a successful business owner, Kendal wants a partner who can keep up with him personally and professionally but he has concerns whether she fits into his future. Meanwhile, Erica feels underappreciated in the relationship and hopes this experience brings them one step closer to an engagement and proves to Kendal that the grass isn't always greener. Temptation Island is an opportunity for Kendal to test the waters and determine if there is a woman out there who could possibly live up to his high standards or if he should finally get down on one knee.

Erin Smith and Corey Sobczyk

Current City: San Diego, CA
Erin: Age 24, Behavioral Therapist
Corey: Age 25, Concierge Manager
Dating: 1.5 Years

Erin and Corey have been dating for 1.5 years and although their relationship started strong, cracks in the foundation have begun to form. A former pro-soccer player, Erin is used to dating professional athletes and has a bad habit of comparing every guy she dates to her ex-boyfriends. Corey feels belittled and underappreciated by Erin and has lost his swagger and confidence. Afraid of settling, Erin feels something is lacking in their relationship and hopes this experiment will bring her more clarity, while Corey hopes to prove to Erin that he's the man for her and is better than her exes.

Kristen Ramos and Julian Allen

Current City: Sewell, NJ
Kristen: Age 26, Physical Therapist
Julian: Age 26, Personal Trainer
Dating: 11 Years

High school sweethearts, Kristen and Julian have been together for 11 years. Although they have been dating for longer than most couples, something is keeping them from taking the next step in their relationship. Julian has cheated twice and fully owns his mistakes, but he wonders if there will ever be a time when Kristen no longer holds his indiscretions against him. Although Julian might be ready to propose, he's terrified that if he does, he may not get the answer he wants. Kristen is also unsure if her hesitation about moving forward with the relationship is about her inability to let go of the past, or fear of embracing the future. Will Temptation Island help them overcome their hesitation or will it make them realize that, even after all this time, they just aren't meant to be?
