Bachelor in Paradise returns for an eighth season.

In a post shared with the official Instagram page of Bachelor in Paradisea teaser video of a beach was captioned: “It’s the announcement you’ve been waiting for… #BachelorinParadise returns to the beach for another season!”

The confirmation is big news for fans who feared the long-running summer spinoff was dead in the water. In October 2021, spoiler bloggers Reality Steve predicted that “Bachelor in Paradise” would not return, citing low ratings and an “old and tired” format.

In March 2022, showrunner Mike Fleiss further confused fans when he tweeted and then deleted a comment about the show’s cancellation.

While the renewal is now confirmed, no cast information or premiere dates have been released. The ABC dating spinoff is usually shot in Mexico in early summer and will start airing in August. According to TV Insider.


Bachelor Nation stars reacted to the news

In response to the renewal news, several Bachelor Nation stars have posted comments on social media.

Wells Adams, who served as bartender and rotating host on Bachelor in Paradise, sent a sunglasses smiley face emoji. Fans responded to Adams’ emoji to ask him to return as the host of Bachelor in Paradise, nearly a year after longtime host Chris Harrison left the franchise for good. In 2021, Adams shared hosting duties with “Paradise” superfans David Spade, Lil’ Jon, Lance Bass and Titus Burgess for the past season.

Speaking of last season, one of the hit couples from last summer’s show might want to go back to where it all began. After ABC’s renewal post, Noah Erb suggested he return to paradise with his Bachelor Nation sweetheart Abigail Heringer.

“[Abigail Heringer] Do you want to trace it back? I miss the shrimp”, Erb wrote.

And Bachelor in Paradise grad Clay Harbor made his own request to one of Katie Thurston’s Bachelorette rejections.

“[Andrew Spencer] Get ready sir,” Harbor tweeted.


Several recent Bachelor Nation “winners” could be returning for “Paradise.”

There’s a wide range of candidates to fill the “Paradise” cast, and at least two of the show’s recent “winners” are single again.

In an interview with Bachelor NationMaurissa Gunn, who was briefly engaged to her “Paradise” partner Riley Christian until confirming their split earlier this year, revealed she’s still searching for her soulmate.

“I want Bachelor Nation to know that I’m still looking for love. Love is the most important thing to me. I want a husband,” Gunn said. “It really sucks to come out of an experience where you think everyone is looking for it. Especially when you think you’ve found it, like a ring on your finger and stuff.”

In further hinting that she might want to return to “paradise,” Gunn added, “I know this experience can work, but it takes two to make it work.”

Also, Blake Moynes was recently asked if he would consider looking for love on Bachelor in Paradise. Moynes appeared in Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ dual season ‘Bachelorette’ in 2020 before getting engaged to Katie Thurston last year. The two ended their engagement three months later.

According to Us Weekly, in an Instagram Story Q&A on March 29, Moynes responded to a fan asking if he was going back to reality TV, and he responded with, “Duh, Paradise! Count it down! Can’t wait to get to this beach, go back in.”

The 31-year-old Canadian wildlife manager then added that he was joking but noted he wouldn’t completely rule out a return.

“Probably not,” he said when he signed on to Bachelor in Paradise. “Never say never, but don’t, unless it was a great opportunity for something, but I don’t want it.”
