As previously determined, The Bachelor is set to debut on Monday, January 6, 2020 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
"Peter's search for his soul mate takes off to new heights on premiere day when a few women earn their wings on a daring group date plus other romantic dates -- a first ever on a Bachelor premiere," the network teased in a press release announcing the three-hour event.
ABC also revealed the premiere broadcast will feature "a special surprise visitor who has everyone talking!"
Peter was officially announced as The Bachelor's next star on the reunion for Bachelor in Paradise's sixth season days before filming began, however ABC actually released the names and photos of the season's bachelorettes before Peter was formally announced.
"I feel so grateful right now just to have this opportunity in front of me. I feel emotional right now, man. This is crazy; this is life changing!" Peter told The Bachelor host Chris Harrison in front of a screaming audience at the time.
"I have truly, my entire life, looked forward to finding my girl and that person I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with."
He later added, "I have all the faith in the world this can work for me, and I know it's going to."

Peter finished Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette in third place earlier this year. Peter fell in love with Hannah and was blindsided by his rejection.
The pair, however, were able to enjoy a good laugh once the season ended because Hannah revealed she had slept with Peter four times in a windmill during their overnight Fantasy Suite date.
Peter apparently had no hard feelings toward Hannah.
Hannah accepting a marriage proposal from aspiring country singer Jed Wyatt during The Bachelorette's Season 15 finale, but she broke off their engagement five weeks later because she caught Jed lying about what his relationship status had been prior to his appearance on the show.
Hannah is now competing on Season 28 of Dancing with the Stars with her professional partner Alan Bersten.
