I hate to be the one to break it to you, but it looks like we could be waiting a little longer to get our Bachelor fix.
Network 10 and Warner Bros. have decided to suspend production of the new season of The Bachelor Australia, featuring Survivor star Locklan ‘Locky’ Gilbert, due to the escalating coronavirus crisis.
In a statement, the network said “Although we have been employing extra precautions on set for some time, it is no longer practical to continue with production.”

“The health and safety of our participants and crew members is our number one priority.
“These are extremely difficult times for all Australians and for our industry, and the full extent of those difficulties will not be known for some time to come.”
The Network said the decision to halt production was made after considering all available options.
“We will resume production when it is safe to do so,” Network 10 said.
“While this decision is disappointing, we remain committed to keeping our audiences entertained and connected in these challenging times.
“We are also committed to ensuring the television industry remains in as strong a shape as possible so we can continue to bring Australian viewers local content.”
