As Bachelor Nation fans patiently wait for Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette to start filming, ABC is gearing up to air three-hour-long “best-of” episodes beginning in early June. The new series — called The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! — will highlight epic seasons from the franchise’s history. Of course, many fans are excited to jump right into the drama. But will cable-cutting fans get to watch The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever! on Hulu after new episodes air on ABC? Here’s what we know.
‘The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever!’ air date and time on ABC
According to ABC’s schedule, Bachelor Nation fans can tune into The Greatest Seasons — Ever! premiere on Monday, June 8, 2020. The first of 10 episodes will be released at 8 p.m. ET. And as mentioned, each installment will be three-hours-long. This means the June 8 episode will end at 11 p.m. ET.
The series premiere of The Greatest Seasons — Ever! will feature Sean Lowe’s season of The Bachelor, which originally aired in 2013. The June 15 episode will include Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Bachelorette journey. Then Ben Higgins will get the spotlight on June 22.
Will ‘The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever!’ be on Hulu?
It’s highly likely The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! will be released on Hulu. When the streaming platform announced its new additions for June 2020, an ABC title called The Best of The Bachelor: Series Premiere is set to come out on Tuesday, June 9.
Clearly, the titles don’t match. However, we know the network already changed the name one time in the past. The series was The Bachelor: The Most Unforgettable—Ever! when it was first teased before altering it to the current title.
Even so, Hulu adds shows from ABC the day after they air live on the network. New episodes typically drop by 9 a.m. ET at the latest. So fans will be able to see what Bachelor-related content the streaming service will unveil by that time.
What to expect from ‘The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever!’
As you may know, Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette was supposed to start on Monday, May 18. However, production was shut down indefinitely because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. So ABC announced The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! to fill in the gap.
“We really wanted to give Bachelor Nation something to watch, and immediately, there was this clamoring and desire from our fans to watch old seasons,” host Chris Harrison told Variety in April 2020.
Then according to a press release courtesy of ABC, fans can expect The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever! to take fans down memory lane alongside Harrison. The host will recap entire seasons within the span of three hours. He will also video chat with returning bachelors and bachelorettes to catch up on their lives now. And as previously mentioned, each week will highlight a different lead.
For now, we know Lowe, Bristowe, and Higgins will cover the first three weeks. But the network has yet to announce the leads of the remaining seven episodes. That said, the recent promo trailer teased a few dramatic moments from people like Nick Viall, JoJo Fletcher, and Jason Mesnick. And of course, we’re bound to explore Crawley’s journey on Juan Pablo Galavis’ season of The Bachelor. So stay tuned.
