The fall TV landscape is shaping up nicely.

On Thursday, ABC announced its slate of premiere dates for the 2021-2022 season, which includes the return of fan-favorite series Grey's Anatomy, The Bachelorette and Dancing with the Stars.

Grey's Anatomy will premiere its 18th season on Sep. 30. Season 17 of the Ellen Pompeo-led medical drama saw the returns of former stars Patrick Dempsey, Chyler Leigh and Eric Dane during Meredith's beach dream sequences, as well as Jesse Williams' farewell after 12 seasons.

The Bachelorette's 18th season, premiering Oct. 19, will feature Matt James' former Bachelor contender Michelle Young in the lead role. Young, 28, was announced in March as the next Bachelorette alongside Katie Thurston, whose season is currently airing.

Following the double-season news, Young voiced her desire to see more diversity within The Bachelor franchise."They know that I'm going to push forward to make an impact in a positive way," she said on Good Morning America. "And I think they're kind of jumping on my train to do that with me."

And last but not least, ABC announced Dancing with the Stars' renewal for season 30 in March. Now, fans can look forward to the hit show's return on Sep. 20.

Last season, former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and pro Artem Chigvintsev were declared the winners. Catfish host Nev Schulman and his partner, Jenna Johnson, came in second.
