'Bachelor in Paradise' adds live after-show for season 2
The Bachelor franchise is expanding once again.
ABC is adding a live, weekly after-show to air immediately following the new season of Bachelor in Paradise, the network announced Friday.
Premiering on Aug. 3, Chris Harrison will host After Paradise alongside series enthusiast Jenny Mollen.
The hour-long show hails from Embassy Row (Watch What Happens Live, Talking Dead), and much like the latter, will dive into the most recent episodes of the reality show alongside cast members and celebrity fans. Harrison and Mollen will also take questions and comments from viewers, as well as debut deleted scenes and outtakes.
Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss will exec produce with Embassy Row's Michael Davies, Jen Patton and Elan Gale.
Bachelor in Paradise, which debuted in 2014, sees stars from past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette return to compete for love or risk being eliminated from the beautiful setting.
The second season of Bachelor in Paradise kicks off with a two-night premiere on Sunday, Aug. 2 and Monday, Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. on ABC. After Paradise will air Mondays at 9 p.m.More on The Hollywood Reporter:
