ABC has renewed The Bachelor for a 21st season. The reality dating series has continued to be a dominant performer for the network after for over a decade on the air, drawing consistently strong ratings year after year.
With no signs of slowing down, The Bachelor will looks to be a part of ABC's prime time lineup for the foreseeable future. Multiple spinoffs have resulted as well, including The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and the previously-cancelled Bachelor Pad.
