There are some changes happening at ABC. The network previously said that Bachelor In Paradise would premiere on July 29, just as Hannah B’s season was wrapping up. However, the network appears to have moved the premiere by a whole week.
Reality Steve, a blogger who often shares spoilers for The Bachelor and Bachelorette, shared the change on Twitter. It’s possible that the NBA game last week and the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards, which airs tonight, could have something to do with the changes in programming.
Back in April, originally ABC posted that BIP started on July 29th. Now they’re saying it starts a week later on August 5th. I guess this means that Hannah’s finale will be July 29th and not the 22nd https://t.co/GUjTJmhaRZ

Late last week, Chris Harrison confirmed that the date was changed, sharing a photo on Twitter that Bachelor In Paradise will be premiering on August 5. Bachelor In Paradise usually runs every Monday and Tuesday for two hours both days for about 4 to 6 weeks over the summer.

While ABC hasn’t announced the cast for the upcoming season, Reality Steve did share the cast on Twitter. If you don’t want to know the cast in advance, now would be a good time to stop reading.
