The reality show will return for the 2016-2017 season.
March 3, 2016
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.

Nevertheless, Bachelor fans are HUGE in number and yes, some of my best friends, also a pretty good number, have had fun watching this show for many, many seasons. We are not ashamed. But,,,,I hope the network hears this - we are boycotting the show, and have a pretty strong notion that, like some of you, that the show has run its course and should be off the air. Ahh but WHY are we boycotting the show? Probably no one here gives a hoot why but I am going to say it anyway. ABC left Luke, a totally GQ guy, decorated vet, practically on the tarmac, bags packed, ready to be the next Bachelor,when he was told that this sappy, man-boy, Nick, had pre-empted Luke to become the next Bachelor. Nick is NOWHERE NEAR the man that Luke is, and was definitely the choice of all the fans I know. So 1) Luke was ousted, and 2) Nick is a ne'er do well replacement, and 3) ABC is wayyyyy off base - because I am betting there are a whole lot more fans that are highly agitated at the network for their idiotic blunder. No more Bachelor-Bachelorette for us. We are DONE! (and yes, I know this posted elsewhere but apparently there were more places to post my comment than I knew about....so thanks if you saw fit to put it here as well.)
