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!

WATCH: The New ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Is Dark AF

WATCH: The New 'Pretty Little Liars' Is Dark AF

‘A’ is not messing around in the Pretty Little Liars spinoff Original Sin.

If you thought we’d seen the last of ‘A’… think again. The masked stalker is back to torment a new group of little liars on the HBO Max series. 

The ten-episode season will debut Thursday, July 28 with three episodes. Two new episodes will follow on August 4 and 11, with the final three episodes debuting on August 18.

A new teaser for the series reveals the tone is going to be much darker than the original ever was, and that’s likely thanks to Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) who serves as writer and co-executive producer. 

Check out the teaser — complete with a new version of the intro song “Secret.”

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin synopsis: Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in present day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago…as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: ORIGINAL SIN, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.

WATCH: ‘Boo Bitch’ Trailer Starring Lana Condor & Zoe Colletti is Hauntingly Hilarious

WATCH: 'Boo Bitch' Trailer Starring Lana Condor & Zoe Colletti is Hauntingly Hilarious

If we were to give you only one reason why Boo Bitch needs to be on your radar this TV season, it would be the title alone. Name a better show title… I’ll wait. 

A close second? To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Lana Condor takes the lead as a ghost… sort of. 

But despite the name, the series is anything but scary. The eight-episode live-action YA limited series is actually a haunting comedy that follows Condor’s Eric Vu, a play-it-safe high school senior who decides the change things up the same night she gets hit by a truck and winds up, well, dead. 

Erika wakes up and finds herself standing over her own body, she realizes she’s now part of the undead. From nerd to ghost, it’s quite the transition, I might add. 

But she’s not a ghost in the typical fashion. For starters, she can’t walk through doors, everyone can see her, and she can touch people, though, she’s not entirely sure if you can get pregnant while being a ghost, which is a fair question when you’re in high school and crushing! Are ghost babies a thing? Again, valid question, and good on her for being responsible when the possibilities are endless when you’re neither living nor dead. 

She realizes she’s landed upon a “loophole,” ie. “I can stick around if I’m more famous in death than in life.”

Can Erika find a way to make something of her second chance and convince the universe that she deserves to be alive?

The series also stars Zoe Margaret Colletti as Erika’s best friend Gia, who gives new meaning to the word “ride or die.”

Condor defintiely dominates the spotlight as Erika, and the role allows her to show off a more comedic side to her acting, but Colletti, who is newer to the screen, presents as a promising sidekick. Colletti’s credits include Annie, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, City on a Hill, and Fear the Walking Dead

Boo, Bitch will be available on Netflix starting July 8.
