Love Island Australia Season 4: Release Date, Cast And New Details

On October 11, the third season of "Love Island Australia" debuted on Australia's "Nine" and "9Now." The show is preceded by the original United Kingdom version, which contains just as many memorable characters and dramatic plotlines. For those who have yet to catch an episode of "Love Island," the show is similar to other reality dating television shows in that it involves a group of contestants hoping to find their one true love (or, well, maybe just a somewhat meaningful hookup). 

The Islanders, as they are known on the show, are all isolated in a villa where they are coupled up and must decide to remain together or swap their partner with other contestants. Those contestants who are left single at the end of each recoupling are eliminated. The public also has a say in who remains on the show and which contestants are their favorite, per Best in AU. The surviving couple earns $50,000 at the end of each season.

Ahead, we dive into what you should know about the fourth season of "Love Island Australia."

Love Island Australia doesn't have a Season 4 release date yet

Given the fact that the third season of "Love Island Australia" just started on October 11, news about a potential fourth season of the show has been confirmed just yet.

The filming of the third season of the show hit quite a few snags due to COVID-19, and the pandemic could cause issues for future seasons of the show. After a COVID-19 outbreak stopped the production in its tracks, the team behind "Love Island Australia" had to pivot. This involved moving the location of filming from Port Douglas to Federal, which is located in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia, per 9Now.

Grant Crapp and Tayla Damir won the first season of "Love Island," but they split just two weeks after the finale aired because Tayla learned that Grant had a secret girlfriend while on the show. Tayla seems to be better off without Grant, though, as she has since gotten engaged to AFL player Nathan Broad, according to 9Now. Anna McEvoy and Josh Packham won the second season of the show but announced their breakup roughly a year after the season finale aired.

The Season 4 cast could include host Sophie Monk again

"Love Island Australia" hasn't been renewed for a fourth season just yet. But it's safe to assume that Australian singer Sophie Monk will return as the show's host if it's renewed, considering she's hosted the first three seasons. "In these challenging and trying times, I take my hat off to all those people making the upcoming series of 'Love Island Australia' happen," Monk told 9Now. "I just can't wait to meet our new Islanders!" Irish comedian Stephan Mullan also joined the show as its narrator in Season 3, and it's possible he'll be back if the show is renewed for a Season 4, too.

During the Season 3 premiere, viewers were introduced to the new cast of characters who will stir up drama and lust-fueled encounters. According to Elle, the "Love Island Australia" Season 3 contestants include former Miss Universe Queensland Rachel Evren, rugby player Taku Chimwaza, party animal Jess Velkovski, carpenter Ryan Reid, PR guru Tina Provis, serial dater Ronni Krongold, government worker Ari Kumar, gym rat Chris Graudins, nurse-in-training Courtney Stubbs, "very single" Aaron Waters, and serious dater Jordan Tilli.

Season 3's contestants are in it to win it — but there's no doubt that the contestants in a potential Season 4 will be just as captivating.

One contestant's claim is causing a stir

Ryan Reid, a contestant on Season 3 of "Love Island Australia," made a claim that has raised quite a few eyebrows. The carpenter said that he had slept with an astonishing 500 women. Per the Daily Mail, Reid claims that he slept with that many women simply because he travels often. However, many fans took to Twitter to refute the probability of his claim.

"Ryan needs to show us the excel spreadsheet that keeps track of these 500 women. we need proof #LoveIslandAU," one viewer tweeted. Others were decidedly meaner with their comments. "I'm sorry but Ryan just got instantly ugly. 500 are you srs??? This guy should be on the terrorism watch list," another fan tweeted.

Fingers crossed that the contestants on a potential fourth season of the show are just as captivating as the Season 3 cast seems to be.
