Three months after the announcement of the arrival of Love island on the Quebec airwaves, Québécor has decided to postpone filming. This, initially expected in the spring, will take place this fall.
This is a decision made due to the context of COVID-19. “Even if all the sanitary measures were going to be respected according to the standards in place at the time of filming, we consider it more responsible to postpone the production. […]“, We can indeed read in a press release from the group.
This cult dating reality show in the UK has already been adapted in nearly 20 countries.
Singles, a heavenly villa and a jackpot to win, this is the magic recipe of the genre. But Love island stands out from its competitors because the public has a real role to play.
The show is in fact shot in “almost real” time, which allows viewers to modify the plots. Thanks to an app, they are connected to the candidates and can decide on their activities and eliminations, for example.
After choosing a partner, the participants thus have the task of becoming the most popular couple. The public is watching them very closely. And it is he who will have the last word.
The Love island Quebec version should be shot on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria.
