When will Bachelor in Paradise return to filming?

With all the scandal and drama from Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ split season of The Bachelorette, fans can’t wait to see what Bachelor in Paradise has in store. The anticipation is at an all-time high, as Season 7 got delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Fans are curious to know who the cast is, as producers could select participants from Tayshia’s season, as well as Matt James’ upcoming season of The Bachelor.

“Obviously, we didn’t shoot last summer, so now we are going to have multiple seasons, it’s going to be a murderers’ row of choices of people,” Chris Harrison told Us Weekly on Nov. 24, 2020. “And I mean, I hate to say this, but there’s going to be people left on the bench that we love just because you can only have so many people on that beach.” 

Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic could pause filming once again. Scroll below for more details about when Bachelor in Paradise will return to filming.

Chris Harrison is hopeful about the future

A major storyline on the latest season of the Bachelorette has inevitably been the COVID-19 and its effect on the contestants and the show overall. According to Chris Harrison, the production team is rolling with the punches just like us. “Right now, the plan is we’re moving forward,” he told Us Weekly. “Clearly, we are like the rest of the world. This vaccine is on the horizon, there is hope on the horizon and where there’s hope, there’s roses and there’s The Bachelor. We’re always right there.”

Since the Bachelorette was delayed due to the pandemic, Bachelor in Paradise had to be skipped this cycle, but rest assured, the host said things will hopefully be back on track in due time. “In all seriousness, our dream scenario is Bachelorette is next. That’s our normal schedule. You know, we shot The Bachelor in the normal timeframe, we’re going to shoot Bachelorette in the normal timeframe — this winter/spring — and then that’ll lead us into hopefully the Bachelor in Paradise that we normally have in June,” he explained. “I’m not Anthony Fauci here, but my dream is that the vaccine is working by then and we’re right back to normal.”

Fingers crossed that Harrison’s ideal timeline works out in the end!
