Even though The Bachelorette experienced coronavirus-related production delays, the upcoming 25th season of The Bachelor will start right on schedule. ABC announced today that Matt James, the first Black star of The Bachelor, will begin his "journey" to find "love" on Monday, Jan. 4 at 8 p.m.

The network also set premiere dates for five other unscripted series, including American Idol, which will begin its fourth ABC season on Sunday, Feb. 14 at 8 p.m. (Just in time for your Valentine's Day date night!)

Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, hosted by Pat Sajak and Vanna White, makes its series debut on Thursday, Jan. 7 at 8 p.m., while Anthony Anderson's To Tell the Truth returns for season 6 on Tuesday, Jan. 26 at 8 p.m.

ABC has two new game shows coming in January: The Chase, in which contestants face off against a "ruthless quiz genius" called The Chaser (Thursday, Jan. 7 at 9 p.m.); and a quiz show called The Hustler (Jan. 7 at 10 p.m.), in which five contestants compete for a cash prize — though one of them, "The Hustler," already knows the answers. The Hustler is hosted by Craig Ferguson.
