The first season finale of Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell’s Freeform series just aired, which means we’re now wondering if there’s a season two in store for the couple, who recently halted the plans for their wedding.
Before the finale, Higgins and Bushnell sat down with E! news’ Erin Lim to give us an update, but so far, there isn’t one.
“We really don’t know,” Bushnell says of a potential season two. “We’re trying not to think too far. Until that’s something that’s actually presented to us, we haven’t really even thought about it.”
Ben and Lauren’s wedding is also TBD ever since Ben decided to call it off in a recent episode, but that doesn’t mean that plans have come completely to a halt.
“She still brings up the cake and the dress and the food sometimes, so no, not completely to a halt,” Higgins says. “I’d say it just doesn’t have the immediacy as it did before.”
As for whether that eventual wedding will air on TV, that’s also up in the air.
“I have no idea. A lot of that isn’t fully up to us,” Bushnell explains. “So we’re trying not to really think about like, is it going to be on TV, or where are we going to live in 10 years. There are so many unanswered questions and so many things that aren’t necessarily in our control, so we’re just trying to enjoy the time now.”
One thing that is not up in the air is the next Bachelor!
The new season premieres in just a few weeks (January 2, to be exact), with Nick Viall taking Ben’s place as the star, and while they have spoken since filming wrapped, Higgins would rather watch than be spoiled.
“I know how it is to be in that situation, so I don’t want to pressure him to ‘hey what happened, give me the answers, tell me every detail,'” he explains. “I’m gonna watch it, and I’m going to respect him with that, because I know that he’s gone through this and he’s put his relationship in front of people, and I want to just be a fan now. But I think what I do want to do is be there for Nick to let him know he’s not alone.”
