With the second season of Too Hot To Handle around the corner, it’s no wonder that fans are wondering where and when it was filmed.

Think Love Island, but without the freedom to follow your desires. There’s one less thing on your mind: having to worry about a $100,000 prize pot.

The Netflix series tests ten participants, who are told they sacrifice money from the prize pot if they kiss, take part in any heavy petting, or have any self-gratification on any level.

Season two may look similar, but it’s a completely different location to where the first season was filmed. Queue the lush sunset backdrops…

Where and when was Season 2 filmed?

  • Season 2 was filmed in a villa in Turks and Caicos

The second season of Too Hot to Handle was secretly filmed overseas, before the announcement of the two-season renewal in January.

Under COVID-19 production safety protocols, the next two seasons of the show are being shot in Turks and Caicos, roughly midway between the Bahamas and the island of Hispaniola.

The villa has reportedly seen a few famous names inside, including P Diddy and Rihanna. Plus, Selling Sunset‘s Christine Quinn got to see a sneak peek.

How did the production team cast Season 2?

Unsurprisingly, with the show’s success since the release last year, the team had to cast under a fake name.

Co-creator Louise Peet briefly revealed in an interview about the casting process for the show. Obviously, the team takes a considerable amount of time to find individuals for the show, but favourable qualities include A) being hot, obviously, B) young, and C) a commitment-phobe.

Also, if you haven’t already, make sure you watch the trailer because this season is looking better than ever!

Where was Season 1 filmed?

  • Too Hot to Handle season one took place in a private estate located in Punta Mita, Mexico

Those taking part spent four weeks at a secluded haven called Casa Tau.

Though the location looked absolutely beautiful last year, especially the sunsets, the outbreak of Covid-19 meant the production team had to change locations for Season 2.
