Clare Crawley could have been called in by now.
ABC named the 39-year-old hairdresser the 16th bachelorette in March. Less than a month later, the network was forced to postpone production due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“With the rapidly changing events associated with COVID-19, and an overabundance of caution, Warner Bros. Television Group is stopping production of some of our over 70 series and pilots that are currently filming or about to begin filming. Starting, “Warner Bros. Television Group told Us weekly in a statement on March 13. “There are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on all our productions, but the health and safety of our workers, casts and crews remains our top priority. During this time, we will continue to follow the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control, as well as local officials and health professionals in each city where our productions are located. ”
The news came just hours before cameras would start operating in the Los Angeles mansion.
Speaking of the most dramatic season ever! “Clare wrote via Instagram at the time.” In all seriousness, everyone’s health is the number one priority right now, and as you’ve no doubt heard, we are currently urging pause to to film The bachelorette. 🌹 We take it day to day and even hour to hour because it is so unpredictable. ”
She added, “All I know for sure is that my heart is so full of all the love and support so far, and I’m still so excited that my journey is starting! I’ve been waiting for these moments for 38 years, which is a bit longer, right! X❤️ xoxo. “
