Bachelor in Paradise renewed for 10th season, premiering in 2025

This is not the end of the road for Bachelor in Paradise.

The beach-set drama “The Bachelor” has been officially renewed for a 10th season by ABC, set to premiere in 2025. The network announced the news Wednesday during the Television Critics’ Association summer press tour.

The ninth season of “Bachelor in Paradise” premiered in September 2023 and featured contestants from Charity Lawson’s season of “The Bachelorette,” including Brayden Bowers, Aaron Bryant, and Aaron Schwartzman, as well as contestants from Zach Shallcross’s season of “The Bachelor,” including Greer Blitzer, Kat Izzo, Jess Girod, Brooklyn Willie, Kylee Russell, Cat Wong, Olivia Lewis, and Mercedes Northup.

Season 10 will likely feature beachgoers from both Joey Graziadei’s season of The Bachelor, which premiered in January 2024, and Jenn Tran’s season of The Bachelorette, which premiered recently on July 8.

With just one year passing between the debut of Season 8 in September 2022 and the premiere of Season 9 in September 2023, Bachelor in Paradise took a break this year as the series creators focused on debuting their “golden” installments that they have been working on for years.

The inaugural season of “The Golden Bachelor,” hosted by 71-year-old Gerry Turner, debuted alongside Season 9 of “Bachelor in Paradise” in September 2023 and immediately won the hearts of “Bachelor” fans and others. By February 2024, ABC officially greenlit “The Golden Bachelorette,” which would be hosted by “Golden Bachelor” alum Joan Vassos.

Vassos’ season of “The Golden Bachelorette” will debut on Wednesday, September 18 at 8:00 PM ET. Starting October 9, “The Golden Bachelorette” will air from 8:00 to 9:30 PM ET before new episodes of “Abbott Elementary” Season 4.

Bachelor in Paradise is produced by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon.
