We've got a text! The British reality show "Love Island" on ITV2 may be returning, and it appears that we might be heading to Mallorca this time!

These rumors follow the suspension of filming on the ever-popular show last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The series is presumed to be shot at a luxurious villa on the outskirts of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, a municipality in Mallorca, Spain, where a dozen single men and women will live in isolation from the rest of the world, but under the scrutiny of about 80 cameras, for two months in the hope of finding love.

The show's producers reportedly considered several new locations for this year's series of "Love Island," but ultimately chose to return to Mallorca.

Nothing is set in stone, but "all the necessary Covid protocols have been put in place for contestants and crew," reports The Sun newspaper. 

Though we're still waiting on official confirmation, the seventh season of Love Island is expected to start in late June and run through July and August. The crew is expected to arrive in Mallorca on June 20th, with filming to begin a week later.

And, if this isn't a hint regarding the show's imminent return, people can still sign up if they're ready for a summer of love and believe they have what it takes to be a true Islander. As noted on the proposed application form: “ITV2 is looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the sun, in search of a summer of love. The chosen cast will spend time in a luxury villa, getting to know one another, but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public and their fellow Islanders who ultimately decide their fate on Love Island.”
