The Golden Bachelor is nearing the end of its first season on ABC, and it is possible viewers will see a spin-off, The Golden Bachelorette. The Golden Bachelor is following widower and grandfather Gerry Turner on his quest for a second great love of his life.
Co-showrunners Bennett Graebner, Jason Ehrlich, and Claire Freeland discussed the possibility of another new series coming to ABC. Ehrlich said the following, per The Wrap:
“We know that if we do [Golden Bachelorette], it will be very different. We’re really interested to see how that will play out, but hope that we do get the opportunity and that we get the same genuine feeling of reasonable people who are looking for love.”
Freeland also said that “[With] the success of Golden Bachelor and the fact that it’s resonating so much with people, hopefully, there’s another iteration of that that happens, but we’ll wait and see.”
“I love the idea of a Golden [Bachelor in] Paradise,” co-showrunner Bennett Graebner joked, referencing Bachelor franchise spin-off Bachelor in Paradise. “60- [and] 70-year-olds hitting the beach — sign us up — sounds fun!”
What do you think? Do you want to see another Bachelor spin-off on ABC? Would you watch The Golden Bachelorette?
