After a long hiatus, one of our favorite reality TV shows is back. We'll tell you how to watch Love Island Australia 2021 no matter your location so that you don't miss a moment of Aussie goodness. Even if you're not Down Under, you'll feel inclined to keep up with the romantic fiascos—trust us!

Following COVID guidelines, a group of singles has made their way to a luxurious, beachy New South Wales villa in an attempt to find love. As usual, Sophie Monk is doing the hosting honors and will inform Islanders whether or not they have been dumped. Irish comedian Stephen Mullan is graciously offering commentary, so we hope for the contestants' sake, they watch their behavior. (They won't.) 

The third season has officially kicked off as of October 11, 2021, and it's safe to say a bit of messiness is brewing in the name of true love. Perhaps the most memorable Love Island moments are still ahead? Let's get you all caught up on Straya's buzziest series.

Where to watch 'Love Island Australia' 2021 if you're in the UK, US and Canada (or anywhere else)

Want to access the drama, even from the other side of the world? Try a VPN (opens in new tab). VPNs allow you to change your IP address so, no matter where you are, you can access the same streaming services that you've already paid for and watch your favorite TV. Our pick for top VPN is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).

Love Island Australia seasons 1 and 2 are available for streaming in the US via Hulu, and it's likely that the current season will follow suit, though there has yet to be a confirmation. Stay tuned for more details!

How does 'Love Island Australia' work?

Upon arrival at the villa, contestants are immediately asked to couple up and participate in challenges. From there, they'll take on whatever the show asks of them. But everyone has to be on their toes, as new contestants join each week and uncoupling takes place. No one wants to be sent home, of course, as a $50,000 AUD cash prize is on the line!
