Bachelorette Mondays are the best day of the week. And there’s some good news — your entire summer will be filled with dates, rose ceremonies, and drama. Rachel Lindsay’s season will air on Monday night’s ’til the first week of August. Then we’ll finish off our summer with the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise. Life is good.

Whether you host weekly viewing parties or just enjoy watching The Bachelorette with your dog (cat?), here’s the scoop on the weekly air dates for each episode so you can block off that time in your calendar as “do not disturb.” In addition to the episode dates, we’ve included some info on where Rachel and her guys travel this season.

And yes, it’s all spoiler-free. However, if you can’t wait to find out who Rachel picked, here’s the low-down about the lucky guy.

The Bachelorette start time and viewing options

Last week’s Bachelorette season premiere started at 9 p.m. ET. The remaining episodes will start at 8 p.m. ET on your local ABC channel unless the network makes changes.

If you miss an episode of the Bachelorette, you can watch it on ABC’s online site approximately 24-hours after the show airs on TV. Hulu subscribers can also watch recent episodes on the streaming service. New episodes are added to the lineup approximately one day after they air. Of note — Hulu does not keep the episodes on for long, so watch them ASAP.

Weekly episode air dates

Here are the air dates for the upcoming episodes of The Bachelorette Season 13, including the Women Tell All and the After the Final Rose live special on ABC.

Episode 1 (May 22): The Bachelorette season premiere was a wild one — well, mostly annoying because of Whaboom. All 31 guys greeted Rachel at the Bachelor mansion. Eight guys went home during the first rose ceremony. Oh, and Bryan got the first impression rose after completely sucking Rachel’s face off. Uncomfortable kissing at its best.

The Bachelorette Episode 2 (May 29): The first round of dates will begin on the second episode of the season. According to ABC, there will be two group dates (one ends in some serious drama) and Rachel’s first one-on-one date with a seemingly normal guy and a special guest — Rachel’s dog.

Episode 3 (June 5) will also be filmed in California and it will be the remaining guys’ last week in the Bachelor mansion. Except for the guy who will eventually become the Bachelor.

NOTE: The Bachelorette is not on May 12 due to the NBA Playoffs.

Episode 4 (June 19) was filmed in South Carolina. After more dates, drama, and eliminations, the remaining guys will travel overseas.

Overseas dates

According to Reality Steve, one of the first overseas stops is Norway (Episode 5, June 26). The cast and crew will then travel to Denmark (Episode 6, July 3) and Switzerland (Episode 7, July 10).

Episode 8 (July 17) will feature the hometown dates of Rachel’s final four guys (spoiler in link). After Rachel eliminates one guy after hometowns, she will introduce the final three guys to her family in Dallas, Texas.

That’s a bit of a change from previous seasons. Apparently Rachel’s sister was pregnant at the time so the family decided not to travel overseas for the final episodes.

Episode 9 (July 24) The overnight dates were reportedly filmed in Madrid, Spain. Hmm…did Rachel spend alone time with all three guys in the Fantasy Suite? We’re not sure she’s going to kiss and tell.

Episode 10 (July 31) The Bachelorette: Men Tell All special. Expect lots of “Whabooming” with a side of drama.

The Bachelorette final rose ceremony air date

Filming for Rachel’s season wrapped up on May 11.  The Dallas attorney told E! Online that she is engaged, but, of course, she didn’t reveal who she picked. But we know and you can, too if you read this.

Season Finale (August 7) The final rose ceremony is scheduled to air on ABC at 8 p.m. ET, followed by the live After the Final Rose special.
