The two-hour season kick-off of the dating competition will be followed by the series premiere of the Canadian medical drama, tentatively titled Saving Hope, at 10/9c. Love in the Wild, which debuted last summer with host Darren McMullen, puts contestants through rigorous tasks and challenges while trying to find love. Saving Hope stars Smallville alum Erica Durance, who plays surgeon whose personal and professional life is turned upside down when her fiancé Charlie — who is also the chief of surgery at her hospital — ends up in a coma. Vampire Diaries' Daniel Gillies also stars.
Love in the Wild will begin airing Thursdays at 9/8c beginning the following week, with Saving Hope staying put at 10/9c.
NBC will also air the fourth season of American Ninja Warrior beginning Monday, May 21 at 9/8c. American Ninja Warrior premieres the day before at 9/8c on G4.
