ABC reality boss Robert Mills is encouraged that The Bachelorette recently completed filming without any coronavirus-related incidents. The Bachelor will follow The Bachelorette in filming in a bubble. Mills adds that he expects The Bachelor to premiere in January, as it usually does. "Right before we started, around July 4, as excited as everyone was to get it started, we’d heard about other productions that had had outbreaks even in a bubble and had to shut down," Mills says of filming The Bachelorette. "So, for us, starting was not the victory, it was the finish. The fact that it’s in the can and we have an entire season of The Bachelorette that will air is fantastic. It’s a big deal to have all of our signature shows on this fall."
