Summer may be on its way out, but things are just starting to get hot on CBS. 

Season two of Love Island premieres Monday, Aug. 24, and this time, the show is taking over Las Vegas—or at least one resort in Las Vegas thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. These sexy singles are taking quarantining to a whole 'nother level. 

E! News has your first look at the opening scene of the season, in which host Arielle Vandenberg discovers her trip to Vegas is not to headline her own show, but to host the pandemic version of Love Island. Meanwhile, all of the islanders ("Yes, we're still calling them that," the narrator says) are already in their swimsuits before they've even managed to hitch a ride. Let's all hope they've got a lot of sunscreen on—and that they keep reapplying every two hours. 

"They're leaving lockdown to lock down love," the narrator says. 

Meet the Cast of Love Island Season 2

This season of Love Island takes place a the Cromwell, a boutique hotel on the Vegas strip that has been transformed into a more traditional Love Island villa just for the show. There are bright colors, pink lighting, weird things to sit on, random words on walls, 27,000 feet of fairy lights and a "Tunnel of Love"—all the things you need to find a lasting partnership. There's also a secret jacuzzi! 

This season will also feature a second villa, the iconic Casa Amor, where even more Islanders are waiting to shake things up by breaking up a couple or two. 

Even in a pandemic, TV love finds a way, and we love to see it. 

Love Island premieres Aug. 24 with a two-hour episode at 8 p.m. and then airs every night on CBS at 9 p.m. On Saturday nights, you can watch Love Island: More To Love, featuring the most dramatic moments of the week, new interviews and unseen footage. 

If you want to be able to vote on the action, you can find the Love Island app in the app store or Google Play.
