The Bachelor in Paradise: Spinoff Coming This Summer to ABC!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Bachelor is introducing a new spinoff this summer, entitled Bachelor in Paradise ... seriously. ABC will air a six-episode season after The Bachelorette finale.

The show will be similar in format to ABC's Bachelor Pad, which was canceled last year, only Bachelor in Paradise will be filmed in a tropical destination.

The network confirmed the spinoff to EW in a statement:

"The romantic dating series will feature new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history."

"Plus the usual romance, drama and tears we've come to expect from The Bachelor franchise. It all comes together in the romantic TV event of the summer."

Bachelor in Paradise stars will be based in a remote "romantic paradise," where they will compete to find their true loves, or at least a hot hookup.

Naturally, ABC is expected to bring back villains and fan favorites from prior seasons to compete against and possibly find significant others.

No, Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell won't be on it ... we don't think.

As on The Bachelor, the spinoff will include a rose ceremony, although the format may be slightly different from the weekly sending home of a star.

Details are scarce, but we'll find them out soon enough.

After Andi Dorfman is done with her emotional and romantic "journey" this summer, we'll head to Paradise for even more Bachelor shenanigans.

Who would you like to see on the franchise's spinoff?
