ABC has greenlit a music-centric spinoff of “The Bachelor” called “Listen to Your Heart,” network chief Karey Burke announced Wednesday at the Television Critics’ Association Winter Press Tour.
The show will feature 20 single men and women searching for love through music. They will sing covers of songs individually and as couples, and will explore relationships while living together and going on “Bachelor” style dates with a musical flair.
Burke confirmed that in addition to new faces, we may see familiar faces from seasons past. She also hinted as to whether one of those familiar faces might be “I’ll Be Your Mr. Right” singer Jed Wyatt from Hannah Brown’s season of “The Bachelorette.”
The series, which joins “The Bachelor,” “The Bachelorette,” and “The Bachelor in Paradise” in the franchise, will serve as the bridge between “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.”
Here is the official description from ABC:
“The eligible bachelors and bachelorettes will meet and explore their relationships while living
together and going on Bachelor-style dates that focus on music. Once the couples commit to each
other, it will be time to take their relationship to the next level. The harmony of the couples will be
tested through musical challenges, including live performances judged by some of the biggest
names in the music business. Ultimately, the couples whose performances reveal their love and
devotion to one another will continue to be given a chance to further their relationships until only one
couple is left standing.”
“Listen to Your Heart” premieres April 13 on ABC at 8 p.m.
