Viewers can now wait a bit longer to say their goodbyes to The Bachelor on Monday nights. The long-running ABC dating series is set to launch a postshow analysis series called Bachelor Live, the network announced on Friday, December 18.

Bachelor Live will be hosted by Bachelor stalwart Chris Harrison and premieres January 4, immediately following the flagship series' season 20 premiere, which stars Ben Higgins.

Harrison will dissect The Bachelor's most recent episodes, along with airing deleted scenes and outtakes and taking viewer questions. He will also be joined by the franchise's celebrity fans.

The new series follows in the footsteps of After Paradise, which aired over the summer following ABC's Bachelor in Paradise.

Bachelor Live premieres on ABC January 4 at 10:01 p.m. ET.
