How long does Love Island UK last? It's the question we've all been keen to know this year as we prepare for season eight of the hit dating show (as well as 'how to watch Love Island' if you're not in the UK, though you should be a pro at that by now). Will it be as long as usual or have timings been cut short this year? We've got all the answers. 

Love Island 2022 kicks off on ITV2 this summer, meaning we've not got long to wait now—but when will it end?

While we're still waiting for this year's Love Island lineup to be revealed, we're already certain that it will be full of all the drama we've been yearning for since the previous season wrapped at the end of summer 2021. 

We can expect everything from new arrivals shaking things up, couples developing actual romantic feelings and Casa Amor week ready to stir the pot, not to mention Love Island season 8's big changes, there's plenty to look forward to when the show's back. And if you've asked yourself, where is Love Island filmed? Then there's a different answer to that too as it's out with the old and in with the new as ITV has confirmed the show will be moving to a new villa. But fear not, it's still in Mallorca! 

From classic Love Island sayings, hilarious mugging offs, the heart-melting love stories (whether they last or not) and of course, all the iconic TV moments that will no doubt live on in pop culture through the art of memes - we're already bracing ourselves for this season's Love Island memes (opens in new tab).  Entertainment is what we crave and the Islanders always provide it. So, how long can we expect to have them around this summer?

How long is Love Island on for 2022?

The date for the Love Island final has yet to be confirmed. However, if previous years are anything to go by we can expect the show to run for at least six to eight weeks. Hurrah! 

In the meantime, we're looking forward to meeting the new islanders very soon!
