From a media release:
Following the hugely successful inaugural season of The Bachelorette Canada, W Network is bringing The Bachelor Canada to fans of the franchise.
Casting for the fan-favourite series opens Thursday, December 1 with details available at wnetwork.com. The Bachelor Canada is looking for Canadian bachelors and bachelorettes interested in putting it all on the line for love. Additional casting calls across Canada will be announced at a later date.
In the Canadian version of this smash-hit reality series, Canada’s most eligible bachelor is in search of the woman of his dreams – and hopefully his bride-to-be. The Canadian Bachelor will search for love as 20 women do whatever it takes to win his heart. The women compete for the Bachelor’s affection via individual and group dates involving local and far-flung romantic encounters and adventures. As the Bachelor narrows the field and the number of women dwindles, romance and tensions will rise. Ultimately, he will choose the one woman with whom he wants to spend the rest of his life.
Production on The Bachelor Canada will begin in Spring 2017, with the series currently set to air in Fall 2017.
The Bachelor Canada is produced by Good Human Productions Inc. The series is based on the U.S. format created by Mike Fleiss and produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Sales of the format are handled by Warner Bros. International Television Production.
