One big franchise may not air this year after all.

Revamped dating series The Bachelors may be pushed to a 2023 start, despite being announced as a 2022 title.

While ratings survey concludes in late November, 10 has always teased a 50 week year slate, which takes it into mid-December.

The Bachelors filmed on the Gold Coast in recent months, overhauling the format with a world-first 3 leading men.

Both suitors and contestants will reportedly be able to access their social media accounts after they were taken offline ahead of the show going to air.

Leads Malucelli, McIntosh and Von Hofe have also been given permission to return to social media posting with new guidelines.

    1. That Extreme Wedding show on 7 at the moment is a couple of years old and I think at one point Amazing Race US filmed a few seasons pretty close together so it was a huge gap between filming and airing (feel bad for the contestants having to keep it a secret for so long). Could be a similar thing for show.

  1. This can only be a good thing less nonsense finding love. Why do it on TV, don’t people value their private love life now. Posting on socials is bad enough but for the world to see, really it’s kinda creepy.
