ABC has announced it has ordered two new spinoffs that will air as part the network upcoming 2017-2018 season programming: The Bachelor Winter Games and Dancing with the Stars Junior.

The Bachelor Winter Games will feature "America's favorite" The Bachelor and The Bachelorette participants from seasons past competing in winter-themed athletic challenges all the while looking for love at a luxurious winter resort.

The Bachelor Winter Games is slated to debut in February 2018 and serve as counter-programming to NBC's television coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

ABC revealed during a Tuesday conference call with reporters that the former reality dating show contestants appearing on the new spinoff will include "arch rivals" and "villains," according to Entertainment Weekly.

The Winter Games spinoff is being produced by The Bachelor's Next Entertainment production company in association with Warner Horizon Unscripted Television. The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton are serving as executive producers.

And Dancing with the Stars will be apparently be following in the footsteps of shows such as MasterChef Junior and So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation by adding an edition starring children.

Dancing with the Stars Junior will pair celebrity kids with professional junior ballroom dancers to perform choreographed routines in front of a judging panel of renowned ballroom experts, which will be announced at a later date.

The new Dancing spinoff, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, will premiere in Spring 2018.

ABC has called Dancing with the Stars Junior "a fresh take on an established favorite" reality dancing competition.

The Bachelor's 21st season wrapped in March with Nick Viall proposing to his now-fiancee Vanessa Grimaldi.

The Bachelorette's thirteenth season starring Rachel Lindsay, who had dated Viall on his season, is set to premiere on Monday, May 22.
