Love Island Australia is being axed after this season
And just like that, my day is ruined
In what must be the worst news of the day, Love Island Australia is being cancelled after this season.
Who.com is reporting that after poor ratings the show is set to be axed.
Season two of Love Island Aus concluded this week. The show only managed to achieve a pretty average rating of 494,000 viewers during its premiere on October 7th. Viewers had dropped to 240,000 by the fourth episode.
Love Island Australia’s direct rival, The Bachelorette, managed to pull in 716,000 viewers for its season premiere.
The show is broadcast on Channel Nine in Australia. A network spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: “We will make an announcement about the next season of Love Island when we make a final decision.”
*SPOILERS FOR LOVE ISLAND AUSTRALIA SEASON TWO AHEAD*
Love Island Australia’s finale was on Thursday and saw Josh Packham and Anna McEvoy crowned winners. They beat Cartier Surjan and Matthew Zukowski, as well as Cynthia Taylu and Aaron Shaw in a public vote. The couple, who were the most longstanding left in the villa, took home the $50,000 cash prize.
But it looks like Love Island Australia season three won’t be a thing after the show performed so disappointingly with its ratings. The future of the show is said to be “up in the air”. The show is yet to release a statement or comment.
So that’s it, my year has potentially been ruined.
Episodes of Love Island Australia’s second season are still available to watch on ITVHub. They are also aired on ITVBe at 10pm.
