The American network, CBS, have confirmed they now have the US format rights for Love Island. 

Following the shows success in the UK, it looks as if it will be brought to American Television. The American adaption will be produced by ITV.

According to Digital Spy, the senior vice president of alternative programming at CBS, Sharon Vuong, said, "Love Island has been a massive success overseas. It's currently seen or about to premiere in several European countries as well as Australia, and we're thrilled that ITV has partnered with us to bring their most successful show to American television."

Vuong continued, ''Having seen the reaction of audiences 'across the pond' and around the world to this most recent season, we expect American viewers will be captivated by this engaging format."

The CEO of ITV America, David George, also commented, ''It's a cultural phenomenon that builds anticipation with every episode and creates appointment viewing – a pretty hard thing to do in today's TV landscape. We're ecstatic the show has found a home at CBS and look forward to working collaboratively to engage its millions of viewers."
