ABC announced today that Bachelor in Paradise has been renewed for a seventh season. The early pickup comes on the night of the reality show's Season 6 premiere, ensuring another run in the summer of 2020.

The spin-off series, which features contestants from previous seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette searching for love in a tropical resort, has remained a solid summer entry for the network. The continued success of the Bachelor franchise, which began 18 years ago, has resulted in a number of offshoots. 2010's Bachelor Pad was the first entry to air in the summer months, lasting three seasons before being replaced by Bachelor in Paradise in 2014.
