‘The Bachelorette’ move to Tuesday nights was only temporary

As all The Bachelor and The Bachelorette fans know, Monday night is reserved for roses and champagne. So, when ABC announced in June 2020 that the show would move to Tuesday, fans were shocked. However, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic shut down production for Clare Crawley’s season in March, so many fans were happy to hear the show was coming back at all.

The fall lineup for ABC includes Dancing With the Stars on Monday at 8 p.m. EST time slot, so The Bachelorette had to move to Tuesday. However, the finale for the long-running dance competition was on Nov. 23, so there’s hope for rose fans everywhere.

According to Reality Steve, fans will also get a double dose of The Bachelorette the following week with a Monday, Dec. 21 finale. Then on Tuesday, Dec. 22, fans will watch the “After the Rose Ceremony” episode where the lead returns and gives an update on her relationship with her final rose choice.

Since Clare Crawley was also part of season 16, she will likely return for the “After the Rose Ceremony” episode. The first lead chose contestant Dale Moss while only filming the show for about two weeks. The couple shares photos and videos frequently on their social media accounts that make it apparent they are still happy together.

The new promos show James getting steamy in a hot tub with one contestant, and several clips making out with others. He and his eligible ladies go four-wheeling and zip-lining through the mountains of rural Pennsylvania. Although the production still can’t travel internationally due to COVID-19, it looks like they have come up with some unique dates for James’ season.
