Fremantle will adapt the show for Discovery and it will premiere next year. It follows the likes of CBS in the U.S. remaking the BAFTA-winning dating format, in which singletons pair up in a sun-drenched villa.
Maarten Meijs, president global entertainment at ITV Studios, said: “Following another successful season in the U.S. and recently announced new commissions in Nigeria to Spain, Love Island successfully travels the world at a fast pace.
“There is a high demand for this format, evidenced by already 4 new commissions this year. We look forward to working with Discovery as we have already seen that the show works equally well across linear, digital and catch-up platforms.”
The deal was brokered by Laura Rhodarmer, SVP licensing global entertainment at ITV Studios.
