After a year of unprecedented news, Bachelor Nation has been itching to see what the next seasons will hold.


The 17th season of The Bachelorette was announced on Wednesday from ABC as well as the 17th season of the Bachelor in Paradise. Katie Thurston, former Bachelor contestant, will begin her love journey on June 7 and the paradise season will begin Aug. 16.

After the Interesting season with Matt James, Thurston and Michelle Young were announced as the new Bachelorettes for the next seasons to come. Something that has, of course has "never been done in Bachelor history before."

Each girl will get their own season of love. Thurston's season will go first and Young's will follow after.

Thurston's journey started production back in March at a resort in New Mexico. Just like every other season, gueststars from previous seasons are expected to be on the show, but this time it is to host. Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe were asked to be the host of Thurston's season as Chris Harrison is not returning to The Bachelorettes next season.

Bachelor in Paradise will air their season in August after it was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It was initially supposed to air last summer 2020, but ABC exec Rob Mills said that they would push it to the following summer.

"We are hell-bent on figuring out how we make Paradise work," he toldVariety at the time. "Unless something horrendous happens, I feel very confident that 'Paradise' is coming back on this summer — how and where it's going to be, it's still too early to tell."

The Bachelorette will give its debut on Monday June 7 at 8 p.m. ET and Bachelor in Paradise will air their new season on Aug. 16!
