The Bachelor of Judges Roy Bean (Josh Groban) has already begun the process of leaving the show, which is reportedly set to premiere in 2019.
While the details have yet to be made public, he is reportedly being kept under wraps to avoid spoilers, which would be detrimental to the show’s upcoming seventh season.
The show is already in its seventh season, which premieres on ABC on January 6.
Bean is reportedly on his way out due to the amount of money he’s made during his time on the show.
However, if there is a downside to the move, it would be that he would have to leave behind a major character who was arguably the show in the early part of the showrunner’s tenure.
