While I’m sad I can’t return, I hope to see lots of love this summer on Peacock this upcoming season!”

Hyland’s Previous Roles

The “Modern Family” alum first appeared as host of “Love Island USA” during its fourth season in 2022 when the show moved from CBS to Peacock. Before her, Arielle Vandenberg hosted the dating reality show for three seasons since its US premiere in 2019.

Praise for Hyland

Last year, the show’s executive producer Simon Thomas said it was “fantastic” having Hyland as the host. In his own words, he expressed, “She’s just such a natural and so likable and, you know, I think the Islanders all look up to her as well. So she’s been, she’s just a joy.”

Future Plans of the Show

In November, Peacock announced the renewal of “Love Island USA”. The streaming platform referred to it as its No. 1 original reality series and greenlit it for two additional seasons. Who’ll be replacing Hyland as the host remains unconfirmed.
