“The Bachelor” 2016 Ben Higgins and fiancé Lauren Bushnell are back in reality TV— this time in a new reality show titled “Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After.”
The couple has signed up for their own reality series which will be on Freedom. According to People magazine, the new show will follow the life of Higgins and Bushnell as they prepare for their wedding and new life together. The show will also look into Ben Higgins’ plan to enter politics. It was earlier reported that the software sales rep is considering to run for a Republican seat in the Colorado House of Representatives in November.
“The new reality series will follow the happy couple as they prepare to walk down the aisle and begin their brand-new life together. … All the while, Ben will explore getting involved in the political realm and Lauren will try and establish her identity post-‘Bachelor,'” Freedom stated on its press release cited by E! News.
The 28-year-old software sales rep and 26-year-old flight attendant got engaged on the hit ABC show season finale in March. Shortly after, the two moved in together in Denver, Colorado.
The couple shared a video on Twitter announcing the news of their upcoming series. They said returning to reality TV won’t take much of adjustment given their already public lives.

“After you walk away from ‘The Bachelor,’ it’s not like your life becomes private. People still find out what you’re doing, so it’s not changing our life to be public,” Ben Higgins told Us Weekly.
“We’re already used to sharing our lives with everyone else, so we thought, Why not? It’s a fun way to share life after ‘The Bachelor,’” Bushnell added.
According to E! News, some of the fan-favorite contestants from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” will also be dropping by at the couple’s place to give them advice on life after the final rose ceremony.
Do you think “The Bachelorette” 2016 star JoJo Fletcher is going pay a visit to Ben and Lauren? Fans will need to stay tuned for more updates.
“Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After” will be executive produced by “The Bachelor” showrunners, including creator Mike Fleiss. The show is set to air on Freeform in October.
