Bad news if you enjoyed Colton Underwood’s recent Netflix docuseries, Coming Out Colton: Don’t hold your breath for a second season. The former footballer and Bachelor star says there are no plans to make one, as yet, as he doesn’t think it would be “healthy” for his new relationship.
Underwood told US Weekly, “I don’t wanna speak in definitives, but I will say right now in the time of my life and in my relationship [with fiancé Jordan C. Brown], having a show revolve around that is not a healthy decision to make for either of us.
“So, right now there’s not a season 2. Right now, we’re not exploring that for our relationships or for my work ventures.”
Fans can instead catch Underwood on the new CBS reality competition, Beyond the Edge. The Survivor-type, jungle-set celebrity challenge show premiered yesterday.
Underwood, 30, came out in April 2021 via an interview on Good Morning America. His Netflix docuseries, which followed him coming out and exploring his sexuality, made its debut in December.
Underwood and Brown, 39, were first linked when paparazzi shots emerged of them kissing on a vacation to Hawaii last September. In December, Underwood confirmed the romance, and said they were “in love”.

Underwood explained to People at the time why he’d kept quiet about Brown while making and promoting his Netflix show.
“After The Bachelor, I learned the boundaries and healthiness of having a private relationship,” he said. “Everybody went through my breakup [with Cassie Randolph] and the ups and downs of my dating life. It’s nice for me to have something for myself.”
Underwood met Randolph on The Bachelor and they dated for over a year. They split in May 2020. That September, she filed a restraining order against him for allegations including stalking and harassment. The order was dropped two months later.
Underwood and Brown, a political strategist, bought a home together in Los Angeles in January and announced their engagement in February.

Earlier this month, Underwood chatted with Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live… about his relationship with Brown. He said they wanted a big wedding but were experiencing long waiting lists at venues following the pandemic.
Asked specifically by Cohen if he was taking steps to protect his assets before tying the knot, Underwood said, “No. We’ve already had this conversation. We’re in it for the long haul. I know you guys have opinions on prenups, but … we don’t want to put those vibes out there.”
Translaion: Netflix hasn’t asked.
“Asked specifically by Cohen if he was taking steps to protect his assets before tying the knot, Underwood said, “No. We’ve already had this conversation. We’re in it for the long haul. I know you guys have opinions on prenups, but … we don’t want to put those vibes out there.”
Actually, although Colton has had a few paydays, chances are that Brown is worth more than him, it’s weird that Cohen always seems to think the famous person is the wealthy one in the relationship.
I guess I am kinda perplexed as to why there is all of this hate for the guy. I get that his ex put a restraining order on him and he acted a fool, but she later dropped it and he has since seemed pretty contrite about the way he handled the break-up. I watched some of the Netflix show and he seems like an OK guy to me.
As for his fiance, I don’t know how much Underwood has but it seems that his fiance is a millionaire if the reports are accurate. He supposedly made $1.5 million last year, I don’t know how much he might have beyond that, but it seems he’s pretty well off if not extravagantly wealthy, provided he doesn’t go nuts with his money. I’m sure he’s the one with the bigger bank account.
It is perplexing. He does seem to bring out all the little bit+ches for an uber hate/bitch fest. Jealousy I suspect.
I didn’t think my post was “hateful”, I was pointing out that this guy has been all about the camera and attention from the beginning, and if he’s saying he isn’t sure he’ll do another show, to me, that is Hollywood speak for “Netflix hasn’t offered”.
As for why he annoys me, he made a huge public display of being straight, went on interviews, talked about how he was a virgin just looking for the right girl and anybody who suggested a good looking guy who was a virgin at his age and claimed he just didn’t have time to date was likely gay were attacked.
Then when he comes out, it is immediately monetized. It isn’t hate, it’s just more of an eye roll.
@Diplomat, yeah, you and all of your other screenames have been rabidly promoting this guy from the start.
Maybe because he knows he’s an offensive creep. Please #Coltongoaway
That hater-ade must be real good
Everyone please! All he wants is his privacy.
@SamB et al. Everyone, well most, posters on Queerty want you just to disappear.
Cam: What are you talking about? LOL LOL LOL
Does LOL LOL LOL represent the same thing as multiple laughing with tears emojis when you troll on Twitter?
He comes out, and the first person he dates, he buys a house with and is going to marry. Is he a lesbian?
I watched the Netflix show, it was alright. Honestly, I would think the reason he’s not making a second is what would there be to talk about? I hope him and his bf the best of luck in the future though. Even if I think coming out, making a show, getting super heavy into a relationship wicked fast, buying a house together, and now planning a wedding all in the span of 18 months is a mistake for a person at the young age of 30 to make. What can I say other than, I’m not his supervisor.
No one wanted the first season either, but that did not stop him.
Brown better be careful; Colton’s going to take his heart and his money. I haven’t yet had a chance to watch Colton’s Netflix show – not sure if/when I will get to it, so by all means he should take his time on a second season as far as I’m concerned.
Hahahaha, you mean Netflix has passed on a second season.
I love how all these closet cases come out and get married within a year- … well, in another year, he will be regretting that prenup decision.
or not- how much money does the pigeon- I mean fiancée, have?
Dude love yourself and others more, there’s no need to be a full on bitter, jealous puta… Seriously go get your own show and fall in love, clearly you are in need of it….
@dhmonarch89: I’ve noticed the same dynamic: when closet cases finally come out, they seem anxious to impose an idealized heterosexual marriage formula to their new, same-sex relationships. I’m not convinced it works, either.
When this dude does something AGAINST the community like closet cases Aaron Shlock or Lindsay Graham, or Hershel Walker’s dumbass son, y’all let me know. Otherwise, stop being little petty bitches. You’re little judgmental twats.
