Chris Harrison isn’t returning to Bachelor Nation anytime soon.

Warner Horizon and ABC Entertainment told Page Six in a statement on Friday that Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams will co-host the next season of “The Bachelorette.”

“Chris Harrison will not be hosting the next season of The Bachelorette,” the statement read. “We support Chris in the work that he is committed to doing. In his absence, former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will support the new Bachelorette through next season.”

The statement continued, “As we continue the dialogue around achieving greater equity and inclusion within The Bachelor franchise, we are dedicated to improving the BIPOC representation of our crew, including among the executive producer ranks. These are important steps in effecting fundamental change so that our franchise is a celebration of love that is reflective of our world.”

Harrison was initially replaced as host of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” after he defended in an interview with Rachel Lindsay — the first black Bachelorette — Rachael Kirkconnell’s alleged racist actions. 

Emmanuel Acho was announced as the replacement for Harrison as host of “The Bachelor: After the Final Rose” special, which is set to air on Monday, March 15.
