The Bachelorette's Season 15 two-night finale event has formally been announced by ABC, which has also clarified the finale will begin with three bachelors still in the running to receive Hannah Brown's final rose and be picked as her winner.
The network has announced The Bachelorette's fifteenth-season finale will air over the course of two nights on Monday, July 29 and Tuesday, July 30, with both broadcasts airing from 8-10PM ET/PT.
ABC says Hannah's journey to find love will reach "a stunning" and "history-making" conclusion, putting all rumors to rest.
Although the preview that aired following Monday night's The Bachelorette broadcast suggested next week's July 22 episode will feature Luke Parker's unexpected return and a Rose Ceremony elimination, a network press release released Tuesday has clarified Tyler, Jed and Peter will all still be around when the two-night finale kicks off.
"For the first time in Bachelorette history, three men will move on to the finale," ABC teased in a press release announcing the finale event.
"Rumors [are] abound, but all of Bachelor Nation's questions will finally be answered."

However, it will be proceeded by footage showing Luke unsuccessfully attempting to return to fight for Hannah's heart after getting eliminated in Crete, Greece.
Part 1 of the finale event on July 29 is expected to begin with Tyler, Peter and Jed waiting to receive roses at the Rose Ceremony that wrapped up Hannah's overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
"Torn between her heart and her head. Her search to find a lifetime of happiness and her soul mate comes to a close with the astonishing live, two-night finale event," ABC announced in the press release.
Hannah will join The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison and a studio audience on both nights of the finale as home viewers watch the "gut-wrenching" and "unpredictable" ending of Hannah's time on the show.
