Ben Higgins, the most recent star of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” and his fiancée from the show, Lauren Bushnell, will star in a spinoff series on sister network Freeform.
Freeform announced Wednesday that “Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After” will star the couple as they prepare for their wedding “while navigating the real world after the splendor of . . . exotic dates and fantasy suites has ended.” It will also feature Higgins exploring the possibility of becoming involved in politics and Bushnell trying to “establish her identity post-‘Bachelor.’ ” The series is scheduled to air in October.
Higgins proposed to flight attendant Bushnell on the Season 20 finale of ABC’s “The Bachelor” in March, with runner-up Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher going on to become the current star of “The Bachelorette.”
Oregon native Bushnell told People magazine at the time that she and Higgins would move to Denver, where he is a software salesman for Talisys, in suburban Golden, Colorado.
