'Bachelor' Ben Higgins Is Engaged

Freeform has greenlit a "Bachelor" spinoff starring the ABC show's most-recent engaged couple, Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell.

"Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After" will follow the pair as they prepare for their wedding. All the while, Ben will explore getting involved in the political realm and Lauren will try and establish her identity post-"Bachelor," Freeform said. During the show some fan favorites from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" will stop by to visit and share their own advice on life after the show.

The series is scheduled to air in October.

"Ben and Lauren are the biggest 'Bachelor' couple of the last 10 years," said Karey Burke, executive vice president, Programming and Development, Freeform. "Their romance captured everyone's attention, and we are delighted to continue their story on Freeform."
