RadioTimes.com claims the 2018 run will last for a whopping eight weeks, which is seven whole days longer than last years outing.
An eight-week season – hosted once again by Caroline Flack – would also make it a fortnight longer than the 2015 and 2016 series.
The outlet also claims the new batch of Islanders will return to the same location and villa as last year.
The news comes days after it was claimed the new contestants will have to abide by new, strict rules.
According to The Mirror, the policies will include a ban on drunken sex, masturbation and even nudity.
While bed hopping after a couple of glasses of wine has been the norm in previous series, it's claimed contestants will now have to sober up before any romping.
And even if a frisky moment does arise, it's said the residents will not be allowed to be completely naked in front of their co-stars – ever.
In fact, even when washing in the shower contestants must ensure they are not totally starkers.
The decision is supposedly because everywhere in the villa is considered a public space and most will be well aware that stripping off in public isn't OK.
It's claimed solo sex acts have also been banned on the premises, so if the contestants are hoping to get raunchy, they must be with a partner.
While tears post-love making haven't been uncommon in the villa, Islanders who have intercourse will now have to visit a counsellor.
The therapist will give them advice on a range of sex-related issues and will also be able to provide an emergency contraceptive pill if needed.
And to make sure contestants don't forget the laws that have been laid down, they will all be given a handbook upon entering the villa detailing the new rules and regulations.
Love Island has never been short of steamy action, with contestants including Kem Cetinay, Amber Davies, Montana Brown and Alex Beattie among those getting frisky between the sheets last year.
