Bachelor Spinoff Ben and Lauren Scores Series Order at Freeform

Freeform is making a big commitment to The Bachelor franchise.

ABC’s sister cable net on Wednesday announced that it has ordered a spinoff of the dating juggernaut focused on former Bachelor Ben Higgins and fiancée Lauren Bushnell.

Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After will follow the newly engaged couple as they prepare to walk down the aisle and begin their new life together. The docu-series will also focus on Higgins’ involvement in politics and Bushnell’s attempts to establish her identity post-Bachelor. Along the way, she’ll receive a little help from fellow Bachelor and Bachelorette alumni, who will pop in from time to time to share advice about life after the ABC reality show.

“Ben and Lauren are the biggest Bachelor couple of the last 10 years,” Karey Burke, Executive Vice President of Programming at Freeform, said in a statement. “Their romance captured everyone’s attention, and we are delighted to continue their story.”

Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After is scheduled to debut in October. Will you be tuning in?
