If you love The Bachelor, the franchise is continuing to expand! It's been announced The Bachelor: Summer Games will be airing later this summer. This show already takes up so much of my time! Gah! So now, The Bachelor will be airing three shows this summer:
Rob Mills, ABC's Senior Vice President of Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming, confirmed during an appearance on Monday's Bachelor Party podcast that The Bachelor: Summer Games was a go, following up Winter Games, which aired in 2018. ET has reached out to ABC for comment.
A nod to the Olympics,Winter Games aired four episodes over two weeks in February 2018, while Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s Bachelor season was still airing. The show featured a cast of Bachelor Nation favorites from around the world, competing in various winter sports challenges and trying to find love along the way.
Summer Games will overlap with the upcoming season of The Bachelorette, Mills said, noting that it won't replace Bachelor in Paradise, which usually films in June, and airs in August, after The Bachelorette's season finale.
