ABC Moving Forward with the Next Bachelorette Season Despite Controversy! Rachel Lindsay has confirmed that production has begun on the next season of The Bachelorette, despite the ongoing racism controversy surrounding the ABC franchise.
During the latest episode of the Bachelor Party podcast, Lindsay, 35, expressed her disappointment that the show won’t be taking a break between Matt James‘ season of The Bachelor and the next iteration of The Bachelorette. A source also confirmed the news to PEOPLE, saying the Bachelorette crew arrived on set in New Mexico last week.
“They’re already there!” Lindsay said. “Or at least they’re quarantining for it. There’s no pause on it.”
Lindsay, who became the franchise’s first Black lead on The Bachelorette in 2017, stressed that she will not be appearing in any way on the upcoming season.
“I just don’t think that things have been fixed in the right way,” she said. “Anybody that’s standing up for change, I don’t understand how you could be a part of this current season, because as we have seen in this current episode, there is still so much work to be done.”
