“Yes, we are still in a quarantine pandemic bubble,” host Chris Harrison told. “I think the most important things we learned from last season — it worked, it was successful. We had no issues whatsoever, so if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.”
TV and movie productions now have guidelines they must follow due to the pandemic, and some have had to pause production as a result of a cast or crew member testing positive for coronavirus. Harrison even had to reportedly step aside with JoJo Fletcher filling in as host on The Bachelorette while he quarantined after traveling to take his son to college.
