Less than six months have passed since Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell‘s love story unfolded on The Bachelor, and now they’re back on TV to share the next chapter.

The two are gearing up for their upcoming reality show, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, coming to Freeform in October – and now you can finally check out the first sneak peek.

The clip starts by flashing back to when the couple first met on night one of The Bachelor before promising to bring fans “the ultimate one-on-one.”

“We survived The Bachelor,” Higgins, 28, says as footage of their romantic proposal plays.

“Now it’s time for real life!” adds Bushnell, 26.

The clip also features a clip of the happy couple hanging out at a family barbecue before sneaking in a quick smooch.

The new unscripted series – which will be executive produced by seasoned Bachelor show runners, including creator Mike Fleiss – will follow the duo as they prepare to tie the knot while navigating their new life together.

“For Lauren and I, we realized really quickly that our life was not going to be as private as we may have dreamed it would be, post-Bachelor,” Higgins told PEOPLE in June of their decision to sign up for another reality show. “So with that we thought, ‘If everybody else cares so much about our life, why would we not allow people to come into our life via cameras again?’ ”

“We have a lot to share right now, our life is pretty exciting. It moves quickly. We have a lot going on,” he added.

And despite the “reality show curse” that befalls many couples, the two have vowed not to let it happen to them.

“I think the reality show curse is nothing more than just there being so many distractions and then the relationship isn’t a priority,” said Bushnell. “I think that for us, we really promised each other that that’s not going to be the case and we’re always going to put each other first.”

Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After is set to premiere Tuesday, Oct. 11 (8 p.m. EST) on Freeform.
