USA will debut its fourth season today, so here’s everything you need to know ahead of its launch. 

The US version of the hit dating series is about to land on streaming service Peacock with 10 brand-new islanders set to enter the villa. 

Instead of Majorca, the hopefuls will jet off to the sunshine coast of California, in an attempt to find love. 

The spin-off of the UK series began back in 2019, and Zac Mirabelli and Elizabeth Weber .

They secured the cash prize of $100,000 (£71,000) with Justine Ndiba and Caleb Corprew winning the second.

Last year’s season three was won by Korey Gander and Olivia Kaiser, but the pair split up after three months of dating. 

But will any of the islanders manage to find love, and walk away with the prize pot? 

When does Love Island USA start?

The new series will premiere today, July 19, on Peacock. 

It will air for six nights a week – following a similar pattern to the wildly popular UK series, which is currently showing on ITV2.
