The Bachelorette successfully just filmed, with an October 13 premiere date. The Bachelor is expected to air in January, like previous years, according to ABC, via Deadline.

Here’s what will change amid the pandemic: “While the show will run on a similar timeline to previous seasons – the last 12 seasons of the show began airing at the start of the new year, production will be in a pandemic-proof bubble, similar to The Bachelorette, to ensure that one of its biggest non-scripted series can get on the air,” the outlet reports.

“Right before we started, around July 4, as excited as everyone was to get it started, we’d heard about other productions that had had outbreaks even in a bubble and had to shut down. So, for us, starting was not the victory, it was the finish. The fact that it’s in the can and we have an entire season of The Bachelorette that will air is fantastic. It’s a big deal to have all of our signature shows on this fall,” ABC’s Rob Mills said.

One Bachelor star recently spoke out against producers and slammed them for their treatment of his ex.
