Update: In June 2015, Caitlyn Jenner came out as a transgender woman. This content was written in April 2015 before Jenner publicly announced her full transition.

Bruce Jenner will finally have his say on TV.

On Monday, ABC announced that Diane Sawyer‘s much-anticipated Bruce Jenner – The Interview will air April 24 at 9 p.m. ET.

Sawyer interviewed the 65-year-old Olympian right around the time his decision to become a woman became public.

It was believed the interview with Sawyer would serve as a walk-up to Jenner’s docuseries about his transition that was expected to run on E! this year. However, production on the show has halted because Jenner isn’t certain the production company, Bunim/Murray, is the right fit.

“Bruce’s primary goal is to bring awareness to this issue in order to help others [in the transgender community],” a source told PEOPLE. “He is not sure that E! and a reality show is the best format to do that.”

Jenner “wants this to be taken seriously so that [his situation] can have the most positive impact on society’s perception of the transgender community,” said the source.
