'The Bachelor,' 'Dancing with the Stars,' 'The Bachelorette' and 'Shark Tank' renewals formally announced by ABC

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 05/16/2017 

The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelorette and Shark Tank will officially be back on ABC.

ABC has formally announced The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelorette and Shark Tank will all return with brand news seasons for ABC's 2017-2018 season.

The Bachelor will return with Season 22 after last season's star, Nick Viall, found love with Vanessa Grimaldi and proposed marriage.

The next Bachelor will have 30 lucky women to choose from, and ABC promises the journey will continue to offer "unpredictable, sexy, emotional, over-the-top fun" as well as "jaw-dropping moments."

The Bachelor, hosted by Chris Harrison, is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Unscripted Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton, Elan Gale, Bennett Graebner and Nicole Woods serve as executive producers.

Dancing with the Stars has also been renewed for a 25th installment, which ABC calls its "landmark" season this fall. It has yet to be confirmed whether Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli will reprise their positions on the judging panel.

The reality dancing competition's 24th season will conclude with a two-night event beginning May 22. NFL free agent Rashad Jennings, Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei, and two-time World Series champion David Ross will all compete for the mirrorball trophy.

Dancing with the Stars is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions and executive produced by Ashley Edens-Shaffer and Joe Sungkur.

The Bachelorette -- which premieres Season 13 starring Rachel Lindsay on May 22 from 9-11PM ET/PT -- has already been picked up for a fourteenth edition.

The show, also hosted by Harrison, typically airs on Monday nights in the late spring and summer from 8-10PM ET/PT. The same production company and executive producers behind The Bachelor also work on The Bachelorette.

In addition, ABC has also ordered a ninth season of Shark Tank starring billionaire Mark Cuban, "Queen of QVC" Lori Greiner, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion and branding expert Daymond John, and venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary as the "Sharks."

The show in which entrepreneurs attempt to convince one or more Sharks to financially invest in their business ideas or companies will feature the following guest judges next season: Reality TV star and Skinnygirl founder Bethenny Frankel, investor Richard Branson, Spanx founder Sara Blakely, Smartwater and Vitaminwater brand-builder Rohan Oza, and iconic baseball player and businessman Alex Rodriguez.

Shark Tank is executive produced by Burnett, Clay Newbill, Yun Lingner and Phil Gurin. The series is produced by MGM Television in association with Sony Pictures Television.
