Seniors will get a shot at love on ABC’s upcoming The Golden Bachelor.
The Bachelor spinoff will air on Monday nights this fall, ABC said Tuesday in a press release announcing its new primetime schedule.
The network didn’t give a specific age range for eligible singles on The Golden Bachelor, but said the series will feature a new kind of love story “for the golden years.”
According to the official description, “One hopeless romantic is given a second chance at love in the search for a partner with whom to share the sunset years of life. The women arriving at the mansion have a lifetime of experience, living through love, loss and laughter, hoping for a spark that ignites a future full of endless possibilities.”

The long-awaited reality dating spinoff is produced by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon.
It’s the latest addition to The Bachelor juggernaut, which also includes The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise.
ABC is stacking its fall schedule with unscripted and reality shows as the Hollywood writers strike continues.
Returning series include Judge Steve Harvey, Shark Tank, and game shows The $100,000 Pyramid, Celebrity Jeopardy!, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, and Press Your Luck.
“We are proud to be home to beloved series and meaningful narratives that audiences continue to embrace, and we’re fortunate that our solid, stable roster continues to leverage the enormous success of our established hits, with originals airing every night of the week,” Craig Erwich, president of Disney Television Group, said in a statement.
As previously reported, ABC is bringing Dancing With the Stars back to network TV after one season on Disney+.
