ABC announced today that The Bachelor has been renewed for a 27th season. The news comes two months after the the long-running reality series wrapped another solid outing, where it ranked #1 in its timeslot in the adults 18-49 demographic. The most recent season saw former 'Bachelor' Jesse Palmer take over hosting duties from Chris Harrison, who left the show in 2021.

The 'Bachelor' franchise as a whole has continued to performer solidly for the network after more than a decade on TV, drawing consistent ratings year after year. Current spin-offs 'The Bachelorette' and 'Bachelor in Paradise' are showing no signs of slowing down either.
