‘The Bachelorette’ Will Finally Resume Filming This Summer

Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette is back on after a three-month long delay, Variety confirms. The show is set to begin production in July after ABC announced on March 13 that the show’s sixteenth season was shut down due to coronavirus concerns. Fans even started wondering if Clare’s season would be canceled entirely (rumors that host Chris Harrison quickly denied).

Now, Bachelor Nation fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the incredibly hot contestants (seriously, props to ABC) will grace our TV screens this summer. But there is a small catch. Don’t expect to watch couples swim with sharks in Thailand or ride in hot air balloons in Italy. This season, instead of jetting across the world, contestants will film in an isolated location. This could mean they’ll choose the sandy shores of Mexico...or they might just stay in the mansion. Either way, Clare will get her chance to find love and we’ll get our chance to gossip our way through every episode.

When the show starts filming, it’s going to take extensive precautions in order to prevent the chance of spreading the virus. The cast and crew will be tested before they enter the quarantined location, plus they’ll undergo regular temperature checks. “There is always robust care for our team, and that will be the case as they isolate and shoot the show,” an insider tells Variety. “Production is going above and beyond the recommendations.”

Although the studio didn’t release the exact start date, it did reveal that episodes will air on Tuesdays instead of Mondays. So, how will Bachelorette fans deal with all these changes, you ask? By pouring a glass of wine, sitting back, and enjoying the show.
