American Idol, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Shark Tank will officially all be back on ABC next season.

ABC has formally announced American Idol, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Shark Tank will all return with brand-new editions for ABC's 2019-2020 primetime season.

Shark Tank will air on Sunday nights at 9PM ET/PT this fall, but exact premiere dates for ABC's fall schedule won't be announced until later this summer.

American Idol will return with Season 18, which marks the third season that will air on ABC since the reality singing competition -- which initially aired on Fox for 15 seasons from 2002 to 2016 -- was revived.

American Idol is currently airing its seventeenth season and has narrowed down its contestants to the Final 3, who will perform live in next week's finale to hopefully be crowned the winner.

The three talented finalists are mysterious musician Alejandro Aranda, powerhouse vocalist Madison Vandenburg, and heart-throb Laine Hardy.

Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan serve as judges of American Idol and are expected to return next season, although such news has yet to be confirmed.

The Bachelor will be debuting its 24th season, presumably in early January 2020.

The Bachelor just wrapped its 23rd season on ABC starring Colton Underwood in March 2019. He is currently still dating his winner, Cassie Randolph, although the pair never got engaged.

As for The Bachelorette, the show has been renewed for a sixteenth edition.

Season 15 of The Bachelorette just premiered on Monday night and viewers were reacquainted with Hannah Brown, a quirky and unpolished Alabama native who failed to win Colton's heart on The Bachelor.

Hannah began her journey to find love with 30 bachelors in the running, but she eliminated a whopping eight suitors on Night 1 at the mansion in Los Angeles, CA.

Shark Tank will be returning with its eleventh season this fall. The show's tenth season premiered in October 2018.
