Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will return as hosts on the next season of “The Bachelorette” starring Michelle Young.
The pair — who are currently hosting Season 17 of “The Bachelorette” with leading lady Katie Thurston — have both signed deals for the 18th edition of the ABC dating competition series, the network confirmed to Variety.
Adams, 30, and Bristowe, 35, were named as co-hosts of Thurston’s season after Chris Harrison stepped away from the franchise earlier this year.
Production recently started on Young’s season, and the co-hosts and other cast and crew have been quarantined at the filming site for about a week, sources told Variety. Like Thurston, Young — a 28-year-old teacher — was a fan favorite from the most recent season of “The Bachelor” with Matt James.
Harrison notoriously caught heat earlier this year for defending former “Bachelor” contestant Rachael Kirkconnell after she was slammed for attending an Antebellum-themed party in college and allegedly “liking” racially insensitive social media posts.
Since then, the longtime host has completely exited the “Bachelor” franchise, receiving a reported $9 million payout on his way out.
Page Six reported in June that series spinoff “Bachelor in Paradise” would include a revolving door of celebrity hosts throughout the season, including David Spade.
The franchise first announced in March that Adams and Bristowe would be taking over as co-hosts for “The Bachelorette.” Adams replaced Clare Crawley as the lead on Season 16 of “The Bachelorette,” while Bristowe starred on Season 11.
“It was nice for us to bring women empowerment to the show,” Bristowe told “ET” at the time. “… Just to be a part of the change that’s happening in the franchise and moving [it] in the right direction, I think we were both happy to step in and be a part of that.”
Adams said former “Bachelorettes” are the perfect people to provide support to a current star.
“I think that it’s so easy to get caught up in the drama of things, second guess yourself, and, for us, we were able to still hold her hand and get her through it,” she said ahead of Thurston’s season.
Young’s season “The Bachelorette” will premiere on Tuesday, Oct. 19 on ABC.
