The Cabins 2022 start date as ITV2 series returns with a new twist

The Cabins will be back on ITV2 in 2022 with a new twist – here’s all you need to know.

The dating show will return for a second series after its first series launch earlier this year became the ITV Hub’s most popular entertainment show.

Series 2 of The Cabins will begin on Monday, 3 January at 9PM on ITV2 and ITV Hub.

The show sees a cast of singletons ditching the dating rule book and deleting their dating apps in an attempt to find true love.

Moving into the intimate surroundings of The Cabins, the singletons then have 24 hours to decide whether they would like to spend more time together – or call it a day and walk away.

Packed with first ever dates, awkward silences, cooking disasters, karaoke and heartfelt confessions, the first series saw love blossom between Charlotte and Sarah, the first couple to stay for four days and leave as an official ‘Cabins couple’.

Series two will see three brand spanking new Cabins in Wales for the lovelorn pairings to check into.

And in a new twist, the three Cabins – Otter’s Pocket, Stag’s Mount and Beaver’s Burrow – are nestled closely together, so the couples will also get a chance to gossip and debrief with their neighbours next door.

Plus, with brand new private areas for dates, there’s plenty for the couples to explore together.

Series two also sees an additional surprise for those checking into the Cabins – as a friend or loved one could possibly drop by to see how the date is going. With an outside opinion added into the mix, will the couples thrive or nosedive?

Meanwhile the mains series will be accompanied by a reunion spin-off hosted by Yasmin Evans and David Potts who will check in with those who’ve checked out. Has love blossomed beyond the cosy Cabin confines, or fizzled out faster than the Cabins’ fire pits?

Paul Mortimer, ITV Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, said today: “The Cabins proved to be a great success amongst our target young audience, and we’re hoping cupid’s arrow can find its way back to the lodge when we debut our second series on ITV2 and ITV Hub in 2022.”

Michael Mannes, Managing Director at programme makers 12 Yard added: “We were delighted that The Cabins launched so well on ITV2 and The ITV Hub and are very much looking forward to producing an even more exciting, ambitious and love struck second series.”

The first series of The Cabins was the most watched amongst the 16-34 demographic across digital channels and became the ITV Hub’s most popular entertainment show, generating 400,000 streams and more than 800,000 consumption hours.
