Get ready Bachelor Nation because the season premiere of Bachelor in Paradise season 9 is finally here! We can’t wait to delve into the mess and drama right with you, but before you tune in to the highly anticipated season, allow us to fill you in on what you can expect in this episode. Specifically, how long this episode will be and when you can expect the next episode to be!
Are you ready for these singles to find love and potentially lose it while surrounded by beautiful views and gorgeous people? Here’s all the answers to your burning ‘how to watch’ questions for Bachelor in Paradise season 9!
How long is Bachelor in Paradise tonight?
Make sure you get your popcorn ready because Bachelor in Paradise will be approximately two hours long on Thursday, Sept. 28. The new episode will begin at 9:00 p.m. ET and will end at 11:00 p.m. ET on ABC with limited commercial breaks. Because of The Golden Bachelor, this premiere is a tad later than we are used to since the newest installment in the Bachelor franchise took over Bachelor in Paradise‘s typical 8:00 p.m. ET time slot.
If you aren’t able to stay up for the entirety of the premiere or if you prefer to watch at a later time, then you may be better off catching new episodes the next day on Hulu at 5:01 a.m. ET. Or, if you don’t have a Hulu subscription, check out your cable’s On-Demand lineup, as this series may be available to you, too.
When’s the next episode of Bachelor in Paradise?
Bachelor in Paradise season 9 will release new episodes every Thursday night at 9:00 p.m. ET unless scheduled otherwise.
Bachelor Nation fans who are night owls will have drama-filled Thursday nights for the rest of season 9, while those who prefer to go to bed early may just have to set the DVR or wait to stream new episode the next day on Hulu. However, if you are more concerned about the day than the time, we, sadly, think season 9 will continue to air on Thursdays instead of the Mondays you’re used to.
Monday nights on ABC have been overtaken by the NFL for the time being, so don’t expect Bachelor Mondays any time soon. Hopefully, this will change but, for now, Thursday nights is our new favorite day for the week. (There’s nothing wrong with a little change!)
Now that you know all about how long tonight’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise is, be sure to head over to ABC tonight, Sept. 28, at 9:00 p.m. ET to catch every second of the premiere. See you there!
