ABC Eyeing Summer 2021 Return For 'Bachelor In Paradise'

ABC Eyeing Summer 2021 Return For 'Bachelor In Paradise'

Bachelor in Paradise might actually be coming back in the summer.

Variety says that ABC executives are hopeful that the reality show, and spinoff from The Bachelor franchise, will start filming soon, despite rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in the country.

“We are hell-bent on figuring out how we make Paradise work,” Rob Mills, who is the senior vice president of alternative series, specials and late-night programming, shared with the site. “Unless something horrendous happens, I feel very confident that Paradise is coming back on this summer — how and where it’s going to be, it’s still to early to tell.”

Bachelor in Paradise was unable to film the seventh season in 2020 because of coronavirus restrictions.

While BiP is a top priority for ABC to get off the ground – even if it isn’t filming in Mexico – they’re also looking to launch the senior citizen version of The Bachelor, too.

“In addition to Paradise, the other thing we want to get serious about revisiting is the older Bachelor spinoff,” Rob adds. “We’re actively working on making it happen.”

Right now, Matt James‘ season of The Bachelor is airing and something shocking happened at the end of the recent episode.
