Is The Bachelorette on tonight, Tuesday, October 12?

Who’s ready for a new season of The Bachelorette?!

Michelle Young, who became a fan-favorite on Matt James‘ season of The Bachelor, is about to take the stage as the franchise’s next lead. The 28-year-old teacher from Minnesota stole America’s hearts earlier this year and although she did not walk away with Matt’s final rose, she did score a ton of points with fans and it was a no-brainer she’d become the Bachelorette.

Unlike any year before, fans are blessed in 2021 with not only one full season of The Bachelorette but two! Katie Thurston from Matt James’ season had her turn in the spring and got engaged to Blake Moynes. Now, we’re all excited to see how Michelle’s journey to finding true love turns out.

And what makes this season even more exciting is that former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will be back to host again! We couldn’t pick a better duo for the job.

So now that Bachelor in Paradise season 7 officially ended last week, is The Bachelorette season 18 starting up this week? Is the premiere tonight, Tuesday, Oct. 12?

The Bachelorette season 18 premiere date

Sorry, Bachelor Nation! Although Michelle’s season is up next, we do have a week break between Bachelor in Paradise and The Bachelorette.

The premiere of The Bachelorette season 18 will air in one week from now on Tuesday, Oct. 19. As always, you can tune in at 8:00 p.m. EST that night to ABC or with FuboTV, which is currently offering a free trial. You can also sign up for Hulu to watch the episodes the next day.

Check out a preview for Michelle’s season below and get excited for what’s to come!
