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.
