According to Entertainment Weekly, Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss is behind the new series, which will feature memorable alums from The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and the now-cancelled Bachelor Pad series. The contestants will be sent to live in a tropical resort together and, over the course of six episodes, attempt to find love once again.
“The romantic dating series will feature new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history, plus all the usual romance, drama and tears we’ve come to expect from the Bachelor franchise." ABC said in a statement. "No airdate has been set, but the next edition of The Bachelorette kicks off May 19. It all comes together in the romantic television event of the summer.”
Oh, and some extra good news for die-hard Bachelor fans: Chris Harrison, rose ceremonies and tears of humiliation will all most definitely feature on the new show.
