This is the most dramatic season of The Bachelorette, and it hasn’t even started yet!
In addition to production delays brought upon by the coronavirus pandemic, sources say that Clare Crawley is stepping down as the upcoming Bachelorette.
According to E! News, Bachelor in Paradise alum Tayshia Adams will step into the light as the upcoming Bachelorette.
“The producers have told her that the season will still lead with Clare and her short-lived journey, and will show Clare falling in love with one of her suitors,” sources said. “Clare will then conclude her journey and announce that Tayshia is the lead.”
Deadline reports Clare fell in love with Dale Moss early on and left the show, but the producers have decided to allow her to journey to pan out before handing over the reigns to Adams.
Season 18 began production in early August, a few months delayed because of the pandemic. Safety measures have been put in place to keep the crew and cast safe.
With many travel restrictions still in place, the upcoming season will move away from the Bachelor mansion. Instead, it’ll be shot at a resort in Palm Springs, California, where the cast and crew will be staying for the whole season run, per ET.
Rumors began swirling earlier this week after Clare, the oldest Bachelorette in history at 39, reportedly liked and unliked a tweet about Tayshia taking her spot.
During production of the series, none of the contestants are allowed to have access to their phones, which led Bachelor Nation to believe that Crawley was no longer part of the series.
E! notes that ABC declined to comment.
Deadline also reports that since this is such a new predicament, the suitors that Clare eliminated will be allowed to return for a shot at love with Adams.
In total, there are 42 willing and available suitors looking for a chance at true love; 25 of them are new, 17 carried over from the first round prior to COVID delays.
If the reports are true, Adams will become the second-ever Black lead on the franchise next to season 13’s Rachel Lindsay. The Bachelor, which was previously criticized for its lack of diversity, is also introducing the first ever Black Bachelor lead with Matt James.
Adams first appeared in the franchise on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor.
What do you think about two Bachelorette’s? It’s a first in the franchise’s long-history, but then again, 2020 is an unconventional year!

Luke Mitchell Joins ‘Chicago Med’ for Season 9
Let’s all give a warm welcome to a new doctor coming to Gaffney!
Chicago Med is adding Luke Mitchell to the cast, according to Deadline.
The Originals and Blindspot actor will reportedly appear as a character named Dr. Mitch Ripley, described as an “early thirtysomething male Emergency Department doctor” with a past connection to Dr. Charles, played by Oliver Platt.
Word on the street is Ripley has a “troubled background,” which is why he crossed paths with Charles back in the day… and it seems like it might lead to some friction for the two.
He will recur on the medical drama with the potential of being upgraded to a series-regular come season 10, likely pending the reaction from fans.
The former Big Sky star is set to make his debut in the premiere episode of season 9 airing on January 17.
Of course, his addition is necessary as Chicago Med said goodbye to a handful of major cast members over the course of the previous seasons, including Brain Tee who played Ethan Choi, Nick Gehlfuss who starred as Will Halstead, Guy Lockard as Dr. Dylan Scott and Asjha Cooper in the role of Vanessa Taylor.
As of now, the returning cast includes S. Epatha Merkerson (hospital head Sharon Goodwin), Marlyne Barrett (charge nurse Maggie Lockwood), Dominic Rains (Dr. Crockett Marcel), Steven Weber (Dr. Dean Archer) and Jessy Schram (Dr. Hannah Asher).
Season 9 will consist of a 13-episode season, shortened due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
‘La Brea’ Canceled at NBC—Here’s What It Means for Season 3
La Brea has officially been canceled by NBC.
The series is gearing up for a third and final season, which will also see fewer episodes.
The news was announced on November 20, and while it’s not what fans wanted to hear, NBC is at least giving fans closure.
The final six episodes will premiere on January 9, 2024. It will be a lead-in to the season’s final two episodes of the hit fall drama Found.
The first and second seasons consisted of 10 and 14 episodes, respectively. The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes then forced NBC to release the actors from their contracts.
With six episodes to tie up loose ends, let’s hope that the storyline will be wrapped up in a sufficient way that answers any and all questions and leaves fans feeling satisfied.
Zyra Gorecki, who plays Izzy, shared the news on her Instagram, writing, “I’m truly so proud of the work everyone put into #LaBrea Season 3. It was an absolute joy to be a part of. Thank you guys for all of your support these past three years.”

The cast also includes Natalie Zea, Eoin Macken, Jon Seda, Nicholas Gonzalez, Chiké Okonkwo, Jack Martin, Veronica St. Clair, Rohan Mirchandaney, Lily Santiago, Josh McKenzie, Tonantzin Carmelo and Michelle Vergara Moore.
La Brea was NBC’s latest sci-fi series that transported audiences and some Los Angeles residents to 10K B.C. via a mysterious sinkhole. At the center of it is the Harris family, who are eventually reunited when it’s revealed that the patriarch Gavin (Macken) has deep connections to the prehistoric timeline.
As you await the third season, here’s a little season 2 finale refresher!
Is There Going to be a Season 2 of ‘Goosebumps’?
As Goosebumps wrapped up its first season on Disney+ on Nov. 17, things ended on quite a shocking cliffhanger, leading fans to question if a second season was in the works.
And it seems like season 1 is just the start as there are definitely plans to continue on with the series featuring the same cast, which includes Isa Briones, Ana Yi Puig, Zack Morris, Will Price, and Miles McKenna.
With the first chapter closed, a second chapter will explore the aftermath of Briones’ massive decision (you can read our review right here), but first, Disney+ needs to renew the season officially.
As of writing, Goosebumps has not been renewed for season 2, however, everything was created with the intention of there being additional episodes.
And naturally, since the series takes inspiration from the popular R.L. Stine novels, there’s the question of which books will be adapted next to explore the aftermath of Kanduu’s devious plan.
Disney released the first season ahead of Halloween, dropping the first five episodes all at once on October 13 before adopting a weekly release format, which kept up the intrigue.
Through the course of 10 episodes, fans created a special bond with the give teens trying to save their town of Port Lawrence from a tragedy that connected to their parent’s past and included their new high school teacher, Mr. Nathan Bratt played by Justin Long.
Once Disney renews the series and announces a premiere date (which can happen as the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes are over), we’ll update this post accordingly!
