ITV Studios’ and Motion Content Group’s record-breaking format Love Island has been commissioned by Antena in Romania, which becomes the 15th territory to broadcast a local version.
Last year it also launched in Belgium, Netherlands, Poland and Hungary. It has run for three series in Germany, two in Australia and Norway, and has also been commissioned in Sweden, Denmark and New Zealand.
Maarten Meijs, President, Global Entertainment at ITV Studios, said:“We’ve consistently said that the essence of Love Island is about the road to finding love, and this is something audiences the world over can relate to, as it’s increasing international reach and popularity proves. Love Island has been a game-changer. It has broken viewing records across the globe and we are really excited about the new international launches coming this year.”
In 2020, ITV2 in the UK are showing two series of the show (series 6 & 7), while it will also debut in France on Amazon Prime Video in March and return on CBS in the US following a successful launch in 2019.
