The Bachelor is trying to head back into production! The franchise is thinking of doing a quarantine themed spin-off. The series has a working title of Bachelor in Quarantine. It is in very early stages of consideration.
Rob Mills, the alternative boss at ABC said the following about the possible spin-off, per Deadline:
“The best thing about The Bachelor is its willingness to evolve as a format so if we need to shoot a cycle that reflects these times, that’s what we’re going to look at doing.”
Chris Harrison also talked about getting The Bachelor franchise back in production in a recent podcast. He said the following:
“Getting 20 cast members is one thing, getting 100 to 180 crew members and putting a director in a truck next to the producers, where you’ve got 30 people in a trailer next to each other is another thing. There’s a lot of logistics that go into it. We are on it, we’re chomping on the bit to produce content.”
As for The Bachelorette, Mills still plans a season for Clare Crawley. The season will happen once things can go back into production. He said:
“She’s always been resilient. We’re going to do her a season and it’s going to be fantastic. If she finds a person, then this all means it was all meant to be. We’ll be nimble.”
What do you think? Would you watch quarantine themed spin-off of The Bachelor?
No more low rent ‘lockdown’ shows.
As I have mentioned before, if I want to watch crying, whining high schoolers, blah blah blah.,,,I would watch, but these shows tend to show nothing but weak minded individuals, we are supposed to be strong, Especially now !!! I WONT watch . I would rather watch old movies, which were great !!!
No for anything related to these related to these shows. Can imagine what the scripted shows are going to do don’t want to see them doing the same thing but you know how they are, already can’t stand most of their one-sided ideology. I hope this and others that do this bomb.
There are rather too many shows trying to continue during the quarantine and they are all dreadful to watch. It’s embarrassing to see the likes of Colbert, Fallon, Conan etc doing these shows from ‘home’ and it all smacks of narcissistic behaviour as if they feel that they cannot be off screen. There are plenty of TV shows that people cannot have ever had the chance to watch before that can be binge watched and I would rather networks concentrated on giving entertainment to take the mind off things rather than continuously remind us, which we already get enough of… Read more »
I hope they both tank, along with all other shows of that genre. They’re all phony as a Ford Corvette. They ARE scripted whether they’ll admit it or not. No one “acts naturally” knowing they’re being recorded.
I think it’s a great idea. Anything Bachelorette is good with me. Programs will be getting scarcer as time goes on. So whatever can be done, you have my blessing.
