Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell have went through a lot of things this season of Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After. 

They’ve literally been arguing every other week about the slightest things and it kind of makes us wonder about the longevity of any potential union between them. 

After calling off the wedding a few weeks back, it seemed like the couple were poised for a breakup, but maybe some things happen for a reason.

As we discussed in our recap of the finale, the couple decided that their wedding was back on, but they just weren’t going to be rushing into it. 

The pair caught up with E! to discuss what’s next for them and weighed in on whether the Freeform reality series would be renewed for a second season. 

When quizzed about what was going on with the wedding planning, Ben had an interesting response. 

"She still brings up the cake and the dress and the food sometimes, so no, not completely to a halt," Higgins says.

"I’d say it just doesn’t have the immediacy as it did before."

They were also asked about whether their wedding would air on TV and they were both pretty uncertain about what the future held for them. 

"I have no idea. A lot of that isn’t fully up to us," Bushnell explains.

"So we’re trying not to really think about like, is it going to be on TV, or where are we going to live in 10 years. There are so many unanswered questions and so many things that aren’t necessarily in our control, so we’re just trying to enjoy the time now."

It seemed that the couple would only know if their wedding was being televised if their show got a second season. 

It’s almost like they’re in limbo. I mean, it was only a few weeks ago that Chris Harrison was offering to foot the bill and have it televised. 

The thing that will likely come in the way of a renewal is the ratings. Most episodes have been under 300,000 viewers, but it could still be renewed depending on how much it costs to produce.

We’ll probably get more clarity on the matter in the coming weeks about the fate of the series.
