ABC has decided that “The Bachelorette” will be returning to production for its sixteenth season with hard-set precautions for safety amid coronavirus concerns.

At the onset of the global health crisis with the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the entertainment industry ground to a halt along with several other sectors to flatten the curve and slow down the spread of the disease.

Now, months later, ABC seems ready to take that leap of faith to bring their viewers something to look forward to while staying safe.

Warner Horizon Unscripted has revealed that the reality series production would begin in earnest and everyone involved in the production process will live on-site.

The program management also shared that the cast and crew members would be isolated for fourteen days, the standard isolation period to make sure no one has caught the disease already. An insider in the production process exclusively told Variety:

“We obviously can’t shoot a dating show with people in close quarters where people aren’t cleared, and we know everything is safe.”

The insider also added that the production site would be an extremely safe and healthy haven for all the people working round the clock to shoot the show.

If the show successfully returns to screens as planned, “The Bachelorette” would become the first significant reality show in the country to return to full physical production.

Some people seem to see some inevitable loopholes while “The Bachelorette” producers are sure about their plans.

The widely anticipated 16th season of “The Bachelorette” will have Clare Crawley as its woman of the season along with the contestants vying for her attention and, ultimately, her heart.

While the producers of the show are pretty confident about the plans they have set in place for how controlled the location would be, some people seem to see some inevitable loopholes. A former director and co-executive producer of the show, Jason Carbone, said:

“They are doing their [expletive] to ensure a healthy environment by keeping staff and crew on that location, but the reality is they can’t control the people who work at that location.”

Carbone emphasized his point by theorizing that if they intended to work at some supposedly remote resort, the people who worked there would have to go and come, including workers in the kitchen and the maid service.

The former producer also said that the lockdown and far-away isolation of the show would help the contestants focus on love, rather than the side attractions and free travel that could easily be an ulterior motive.

While ABC and Warner Horizon Unscripted work tirelessly to see that the quarantine dream comes to pass, many people have begun to notice a lack of black leads on the show, throwing criticism at the show’s producers and demanding a change.

ABC released its fall lineup on June 18. ABC seems eager to get back on track as long as they can ensure workers’ safety. Neither location nor dates have been confirmed, but the news sure is enough to make fans giddy.
