ABC announced on Monday that The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise have both been renewed for another season. Season 16 of The Bachelorette and Season 17 of Bachelor in Paradise will both air in 2020.
The Bachelorette season 15’s two-night finale featuring lead Hannah Brown aired last week with a surprise breakup and potentially rekindled romance. The season finale telecast grew year over year by 17% among Adults 18-49 to post the show’s highest-rated telecast in two years and delivered a season-high 2.2 million total social interactions.
Although Bachelor in Paradise’s sixth season just premiered last night, the spin-off led its Monday night time period last summer and stood as the night’s No. 1 series across all key Adult demos (A18-34/A18-49/A25-54).
ABC had already announced that The Bachelor had already been picked up for season 24, which will also air in 2020.

Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.
