The Bachelor: When & Where Was Clayton Echard's Season Filmed?

As Bachelor Nation looks forward to watching Clayton Echard's season of The Bachelor, some fans are wondering when and where season 26 was filmed. Unfortunately, 2021 wasn't the best year for The Bachelor franchise despite the history-making casting of Matt James as the first-ever Black lead on the show. While Matt was a compelling lead for fans to follow along, his cast of women turned out to be pretty controversial, which left a sour taste in the viewers' mouths.

After Rachael Kirkconnell's racist photos leaked and she still went on to win the season, Bachelor Nation was disappointed by the overall outcome of Matt's journey on The Bachelor. Then, Katie Thurston's season of The Bachelorette premiered and was deemed one of the most boring seasons in the history of the series. The year ended with Michelle Young's season being surprisingly interesting and fun, but viewers were still confused by contestant Clayton Echard being cast as the next Bachelor.

Fans are now wanting to learn more about The Bachelor season 26, including where it was filmed. After several recent seasons taking place at different locations due to COVID-19 protocols, Clayton's season has officially been filmed at the traditional "Bachelor Mansion" in Agoura Hills, California. The mansion is formally called Villa de la Vina, but Bachelor viewers know it as the mansion where nearly all seasons of the show were filmed. This means that the backdrop of Clayton's season will feel much more familiar to Bachelor Nation than other recent seasons that were filmed elsewhere. According to different reports, the season also had international locations such as Iceland, Croatia, and Austria.

The filming schedule of The Bachelor season 26 has also been of interest to many viewers. Clayton's season started filming on September 29, 2021. For context, Michelle's season of The Bachelorette didn't start airing until October 19, so Clayton's season was already being produced before he even appeared on TV for the first time. Per different reports, Clayton and his cast of women were spotted filming The Bachelor in Texas in October 2021. They were then seen filming in Iceland in November 2021. Overall, it appears that Clayton's season was filmed for a total of two months. If things went well for Clayton on The Bachelor, he might already have spent the holidays with whoever he ends up with at the end of his season.

Last year, Matt James' season aired on TV between January 4 and March 15, 2021. If Clayton's season also has a total of 12 episodes, it will expected to air until March 2022. Bachelor Nation fans are now bracing themselves for two full months of love, drama, and heartbreak.
