“Known for its high production quality, dramatic storytelling, and fairy-tale ending, The Bachelor Canada proved to be an incredible success for City in its inaugural season,” said Nataline Rodrigues, director of original programming, Rogers Media. “With their proven experience at the helm of this hit series, partnering with the creative minds at Good Human Productions was a natural fit to continue the momentum for the upcoming season.”
“Good Human’s goal is to create and deliver consistent hits for broadcasters across North America and around the globe,” said Freeland, partner and executive producer. “We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about starting this journey with the second season of The Bachelor Canada, a series both Sean and I are incredibly passionate about."
“After working together as broadcaster and producer to bring the first season of The Bachelor Canada to audiences across the country, it's very exciting to be joining forces as the executive producers of Season 2," said De Vries, partner and executive producer. "I look forward to this, and an exciting future for our company as we generate innovative and compelling content for our production partners."
