We weren’t surprised to learn that The Bachelorette has been delayed due to coronavirus. But according to Reality Steve, the new season could still premiere as early as September.

The famed TV blogger discussed Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette during a recent episode of his podcast. Reality Steve confirmed that producers are planning a very optimistic production schedule that will waste as little time as possible.

The goal is to resume production by late July/early August, with the hope of premiering the first episode in September. In an attempt to follow social distancing guidelines, the show will be filmed at an exclusive resort, and contestants won’t be allowed to leave unless they’re sent home.

This means there will be no adventurous excursions, no international trips and no hometown dates. Instead, Crawley and the contestants will be confined to the resort, so bring on the explosive arguments.

“I have learned that The Bachelorette is looking to film the entire [season] in one location,” Reality Steve explained. “That means all the dates, and the cocktail parties, and rose ceremonies, and the cast would all live in one resort for the whole time of filming. Zero travel. And I’m talking about—that certainly seems to me, from what I was told—they’re never leaving wherever they’re going.”

Sounds like a reimagined version of Bachelor in Paradise.
