ABC announced today that Bachelor in Paradise has been renewed for a ninth season. Traditionally a summer series, the show moved to the fall last year for the first time, and it looks like it will again be a fall entry for the 2023-2024 season.

The spin-off series, which features contestants from previous seasons of 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' searching for love in a tropical resort, remains a solid performer for the network. The continued success of the 'Bachelor' franchise, which began 20 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. Season 9 should see the show surpass the 100-episode mark.
