ABC Launching 'Bachelor' Spin-off For Seniors


Will you accept this rose from a silver fox?

ABC is expanding its "Bachelor" empire by launching a new version of the long-running series that will be aimed at older singles looking for love during their golden years.

While “The Bachelor” typically casts people in their twenties and thirties, this new iteration is for people 65 years and older.

Robert Mills, the network’s head of alternative programming, shared news of the upcoming series in a tweet.

“#Bachelornation give us your Grumpiest Old Men, give us your Goldenest Girls. #TheBachelor,” he wrote, before clarifying, “To be clear, this is 65+.”

A casting site for the untitled Bachelor senior dating show gave a little more information.

“Now casting Seniors Looking for Love!,” the notice states.  “Are you entering your golden years and looking for romance? The Producers of ‘The Bachelor’ are looking for active and outgoing single men and women IN THEIR GOLDEN YEARS for a new exciting dating show!”

To be considered, all applicants must be single, a resident of the United States and cannot be an elected political official or a candidate for office.

ABC has not announced when the series will air.

The news of the older skewing series comes as another spin-off is set to debut on April 13th.

“The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart” will follow 20 singles as they try to find love through music.

Part of the show’s drama will ensue as contestants will be forced to perform musical challenges in order to “test the harmony” of their budding relationship.

No doubt the puns will be endless as the wannabe lovers try to make beautiful music together.

“The Bachelor” is currently in its 24th season and airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.
