Late last year, there was a rumor floating around out there that Freeform would be giving the latest “Bachelor” spin-off to Emily and Haley Ferguson, the famed twins (pictured above with Lauren Bushnell) who appeared on both Ben Higgins’ season and on “Bachelor in Paradise” this past summer. They appeared briefly on “Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?” when that show first aired on the network, and now it’s been officially confirmed that their own show is in fact happening.
The title for the series is “The Twins: Happily Ever After?” — which has to suggest to people out there that the network is going for some sort of theme here. Premiering on March 20, this series will chronicle the two women trying to get out on their own and start new lives for themselves after spending much of their adulthood so far living with their mother.
If you think back all the way to Higgins’ season, we saw a little bit more of Haley and Emily’s world than we’re accustomed to on most other “Bachelor” seasons, given that Ben personally paid a visit to their home when they were in the sisters’ hometown of Las Vegas. Through their appearances on the various shows, we do feel like we’ve gotten to know them fairly well. They have a good sense of humor and can make fun of themselves, which is pretty essential for a show like this.
What we wonder now moving forward is what Freeform is planning with this “Happily Ever After?” franchise long-term. Could we see spin-offs about various couples or contestants for many years to come? We do think that it’s possible, based on ratings and also interest. The “Bachelor” franchise is one of the most passionate out there, and if these show to not saturate the brand with too much content, there is little reason to do anything other than keep them going.
