- Filming for Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette has been delayed over coronavirus concerns.
- Chris Harrison made a statement about it, saying “hopefully” he’ll still have the chance to help Clare find love.
Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor just wrapped up this week, which means that The Bachelorette is right around the corner—except maybe not, because a spokesperson for Warner Bros recently announced that they’re halting production on Clare Crawley’s season due to health concerns. They said:
With the rapidly changing events related to COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, Warner Bros. Television Group is halting production on some of our 70+ series and pilots currently filming or about to begin. There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on any of our productions, but the health and safety of our employees, casts and crews remains our top priority.
Chris Harrison also confirmed the news, saying they’re going to reassess after two weeks to figure out if they can move forward with filming. But Chris also implied that there’s a chance Clare’s season might not happen at all, adding, “To my friend Clare, you’re still my Bachelorette, and hopefully, we’re still going to have the opportunity to help you find love and make this work.”
Clare seems to be taking it all in stride and shared a response to the situation, writing:
Well, hello! Talk about most dramatic season ever! In all seriousness, everyone’s health is the most important priority at this time, and as I’m sure you’ve heard, we are pressing pause for now on filming The Bachelorette. 🌹 We are taking it day by day and even hour by hour as this is so unpredictable. All I know for sure is that my heart is so full from all the love and support this far, and am still so excited for my journey to begin! I’ve waited 38 years for these moments, what’s a little bit longer, right! 😉❤️xoxo
And wow, this statement just makes me love her even more—let’s hope that Clare still gets her season!
