Update 3/31/2020

ABC will not be moving forward with Olympics-themed spinoff “Summer Games,” Variety reported.

The competition was set to parallel the Summer Olympics in Tokyo this July, which was also canceled as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. The sporting event was moved to next year, though, it’s unclear if the Bachelor franchise will air the series next year.

 

2/19/2020: The Bachelor is headed to the Olympics… well, their version of it anyway.

There doesn’t seem to be a cap on Bachelor franchise spinoffs because why would there be? We’re going to watch all of them anyway!

Just yesterday, the promo for The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart, a musical spinoff, dropped its first promo, but here we are today talking about an Olympics-themed spinoff.

Following the success of The Bachelor Winter Games, ABC is bringing you the Summer Olympics, a summer version of the athletic spinoff playing off of the fact that the Olympics are happening this July in Tokyo.

The show will essentially feature contestants competing in Olympic-styled sports events, which will just be pure joy, and likely getting involved in drama and hooking up on the side.

“[Summer Games] will be its own thing and it’ll run — it’ll be Bachelorette Summer Games,” ABC’s Senior Vice President of Alternative Programming Rob Mills said on The Ringer’s Bachelor Party podcast on Tuesday.

“What’s nice about Summer Games, is when we did Winter Games, Bachelor was still airing, so it was a lot . . . This is Summer Games, and then Paradise will start . . . There is going to be both,” he explained.

“I think it’s going to be really fun,” he added. “We found a really great place to hold it. I mean, it’s going to be so fun seeing these people in these great, you know, track and field, and swimming. This is a real Olympics. To me, this is the real Olympics.”

Though summer is just a few months away, Mills isn’t sure who is going to be in it.

“I still think we need to look at the creative, and it’s like, do you — if somebody is with somebody or not, can they be in it?” he said. “‘Cause there’s certain people that you’d love to see — I mean, I’d love to see Jordan [Rodgers] or Colton [Underwood].”

All of this basically translates to us living, breathing, and sleeping Bachelor content!

No premiere date has been set for Summer Games yet, but Listen to Your Heart arrives in April!

Netflix Renews Spanish Drama 'Elite' for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members

We’ve got some elite news!

Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!

The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals. 

Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes. 

The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.

It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021. 

The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up. 

Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.

‘Younger’ Moving to Paramount+ for Seventh and Final Season – Watch the Emotional Sneak Peek

"Younger" The Unusual Suspect Review

Younger has a new home.

After six seasons at TV Land, the hit TV show about Liza Miller, a middle-aged, divorced mom who lies about being twenty-something to restart her career in publishing, is moving to Paramount+. 

ViacomCBS made the announcement during the streaming presentation on Wednesday. 

Paramount+ is a new streaming service that will replace CBS All Access. on March 4.

The base tier will cost $5 and include ads. For ad-free streaming, the monthly price will set you back $10.

Now, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you’re an avid TV watcher, adding yet another streaming service to your monthly bundle might not be totally feasible. 

Is ‘Younger’ Ending with Season 7? Hilary Duff Gives the Scoop

The good news is that the 12-episode final season will also air on TV Land. The catch? It will run delayed likely after the series wraps, which means you might not avoid spoilers.

Pick your battles, I guess. 

The move, while annoying for some, isn’t completely out of the blue. The series was supposed to the Paramount Network for its sixth season but ultimately stayed at TV Land. 

With such a dedicated fan-base and so much potential, it doesn’t seem like 12 20-minute episodes are going to provide a satisfactory conclusion. And I don’t think I’m ready for Liza to finally choose between #TeamJosh and #TeamCharles permanently.

The seventh season was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the cast has been busy filming in New York as of late. 

And that’s why fans were able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming season:

As Liza says, “embrace the past, accept the present, and keep moving forward.”

While it sure does seem like Liza picks Charles in the end, Sutton Foster promises that the final season will bring “all the emotional, all the laughs, and all the drama defined Younger and have made it the success it is.”

The series stars Foster, Hilary Duff, Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Molly Bernard, Charles Michael Davis and Peter Hermann.

Back in March, it was announced that Duff would be getting a spinoff based on her character Kelsey Peters
