Clare Crawley‘s season of The Bachelorette is ready to start filming.

According to Variety, the hit reality series is said to begin shooting in just a few weeks, with significant safety precautions in place.

Warner Horizon Unscripted confirmed that the cast will “start travelling very soon because there has to be a quarantine period.”

As mentioned before by a Bachelor exec, there will be no traveling for the entire season and the season will be filmed in a quarantined location with all cast and crew members living on-site.

“Health and safety of our crew and cast is the number one concern,” an source shared. “There is always robust care for our team, and that will be the case as they isolate and shoot the show. Production is going above-and-beyond the recommendations.”

Clare Crawley's Upcoming 'Bachelorette' Season is Being Compared to 'Big Brother'

Clare Crawley is getting ready to film her upcoming season of The Bachelorette after production was stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Usually The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will film around the world with only the first few weeks taking place at the mansion in California.

Now, ABC is reportedly planning on staying in one location for the entire season due to the pandemic and some are comparing the upcoming season to Big Brother, which takes place in one house for the whole season.

The actual location where filming will happen has not yet been decided.

“The thinking right now is to quarantine the cast and crew in one specific location with no travel,” ABC president Karey Burke told THR. “And to use testing and some social distancing. They have a thoughtful plan they presented to the studio and the government that’s in the process of being vetted and approved. I’m hopeful, not certain — anyone who says they’re certain right now is not speaking the truth — barring a second spike or a second shutdown that we will be able to get these shows up and running.”

The producers of the show recently shared some insight into how they will film.

Rachel Lindsay Says There Was a Racist Contestant on Her 'Bachelorette' Season

Rachel Lindsay was The Bachelorette in 2017 and she revealed to Andy Cohen that she “did have a racist contestant on my season.”

During her Watch What Happens Live! appearance, Rachel also spoke about experiencing racism first hand during her time with Bachelor Nation.

“From the audience. I definitely experienced it,” she said. “More so when it came to picking the men, and then at the end, my husband is Colombian, so I got a lot of racism towards the fact that we were in an interracial relationship. Just a lot of nasty messages, trolling.”

As for the racist contestant, fans will remember that one man, Lee Garrett, was outed during her season for his tweets writing disparaging remarks about Black Lives Matter, feminism, the LBGTQ+ community and more.

Rachel also revealed three of her contestants she never wants to see again.

'The Bachelorette' Producers Reveal How Clare Crawley's Season Will Be Filming After Coronavirus

Producers have a plan about how things will be filmed for Clare Crawley‘s season of The Bachelorette.

Rob Mills, who oversees the Bachelor franchise, opened up in an interview with On Air With Ryan this week and revealed the plans that they’ve set in place to film amid a pandemic.

The first thing he explained was that everyone – contestant and crew – will be tested for coronavirus and then isolated before and during production.

The season is set to start shooting “in about a month,” he says, adding it will mostly be in one location.

“We’re going to be in one location and everyone will be tested the week before. Everyone who comes back negative, we shoot inside that bubble basically. Matt [James]‘s season, we’re hoping to start on time which would be the end of September and we’ll see where the world is,” Rob shared.

He went on, “Maybe there’s some travel, maybe it’s just domestic, maybe it’s by bus. We’ll see. If things aren’t that safe, we’ll shoot it the same way where everybody is safe, they’re tested, they’re quarantined and then you can having kissing and arguing and everything else.”

Rob also explained they previously had plans to go to Italy, however, everything will be taking place in Los Angeles for Clare.

“[Dates] won’t be at the Bachelor mansion. They’ll be at some sort of resort and we’ve scouted several of them,” he adds. “All of them have been scouted for good date locations and you know, it will not be as over the top as…we had incredible travel planned for Clare’s season, going to Italy, all these places that were going to be great. But they’ll be plenty of different date locations that will hopefully be as close to the Bachelorette as possible.”
