ABC will air a live one-hour weekly after-show for its second season of “Bachelor in Paradise,” which bows later this summer.

Embassy Row, whose credits include AMC’s “Talking Dead” and Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” is behind “After Paradise,” which has its premiere at 9 p.m. Aug. 3 following the second night of “Bachelor in Paradise’s” two-night season launch. “Bachelor in Paradise” will air from 8 to 10 p.m. on Sundays and from 8 to 9 p.m. on Mondays during its run.

“After Paradise” will be hosted by Chris Harrison, the longtime face of the “Bachelor” franchise for ABC, and co-host Jenny Mollen. They will discuss and dissect the most recent episodes of “Bachelor in Paradise,” alongside cast members and celebrity fans. Mollen may be familiar to “Bachelor” fans from her prolific live tweeting during past seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.”

AMC has fared very well with its “Talking Dead” series, which airs after megahit “The Walking Dead.” It’s unclear if ABC may be considering a post-show discussion program for any of its serialized dramas.

“After Paradise” is executive produced by Mike Fleiss for Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television and Michael Davies, Jen Patton and Elan Gale for Embassy Row.

    Why havent Joe and Sam been kicked off show as they had communicated prior to show?
    I also think Sam runs the show for what happened and yes Joe is an cruel self centered person.
