‘The Bachelorette’ spoilers find that the stink hasn’t worn off from the last season of The Bachelor yet, however Katie Thurston’s season 17 of The Bachelorette has already been given a premier date.
Filming has only just begun after the cast and crew have quarantined at Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, just outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Initially the plan was to film in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada, however, plans had to change as Canada’s lockdowns varied too often to really be able to shoot.
It looks like Katie is in for some summer loving, at least from viewers perspective as season 17 is scheduled to premiere on June 1.
‘The Bachelorette’ Spoilers: Get Ready For Some Summer Loving…We Have a Premier Date!
June 1 is a Tuesday, so ABC could be bucking the Monday night tradition for this season, or, more than likely, it will return to Mondays for the remainder of the season and the Tuesday premier is solely due to Monday, May 31 being Memorial Day.
So why the tight turn around? After all, June 1 is a mere 8 weeks away. If any problems crop up during filming, its very possible the season will still be shooting as the first episodes air, making editing far more difficult. Are ABC trying to divert attention as quickly as possible from the disaster that was season 25 of The Bachelor?
Some skeptics say that season 17 will be mere filler as production figures out what to do with ‘stepped aside’ host Chris Harrison.
Other say Katie Thurston is only an interim Bachelorette as they await Michelle Young’s season that will ‘warrant’ all the bells and whistles. I for one think Katie (and Michelle) are very deserving of the lead role and will rock both their seasons.
It’s likely ABC is rushing the production/airing of season 17 so they can also fit in the promised Bachelor-In-Paradise, back after a pandemic hiatus last season, this summer. Michelle’s season will then air in the fall.
Phew, that’s a whole lot of Bachelor! Will you be watching them all? Which season are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments below and look out for promos for Katie’s season which should be appearing soon!
