The Bachelorette 2015 premiere is just weeks away, and fans are anxious to see if Kaitlyn Bristowe gets engaged at the final rose ceremony. When is the season premiere, when does the season end, and does she travel around the world to find love, or stay in the U.S. like her ex-reality show boyfriend, Chris Soules?
Set your DVR now so you don't miss a minute of the Bachelorette Season 11, and all the drama that the show is known for. Find the weekly episode schedule below, as well as a few spoilers for the upcoming season.
Kaitlyn's season will be different than the 10 previous seasons of ABC's popular reality show, with both Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson sharing the spotlight as dual Bachelorettes on the first part of a two-night premiere that airs on May 18.
According to WetPaint, 25 guys were cast to choose one Bachelorette on night one, and they ultimately picked Kaitlyn. However, it appears that Britt will still have a role on the show, with rumors that she will appear on Bachelor in Paradise Season 2 this August.
Reality Steve reports that Kaitlyn's dates will start out in Los Angeles, but there will be two or three episodes that take place in international locations. Steve recently revealed the dates that the episodes will air, and the locations that have been filmed so far.
The Bachelorette Season 11 begins with a two hour premiere on Monday, May 18, followed by a one-hour episode on Tuesday, May 19. The cast and crew will remain in Los Angeles for Episodes 2 (May 25) and 3 (June 1). Kaitlyn will then travel on to New York City with her remaining guys for Episode 4 (June 8).

After the rose ceremony in New York City, the group will travel to San Antonio for Episode 5 (June 15), before they make their first international stop in Dublin, Ireland, for Episode 6 (June 22).

Episode 7 will air June 29 (location TBA), and the hometown dates episode is scheduled to air on July 6. At least one guy is said to be in the running for hometowns, so keep an eye out for Shawn Booth — he's rumored to be one of Kaitlyn's top picks, but is he there for the right reasons? There's a possibility that he's hoping to get picked as the next Bachelor if things don't work out for him on the Bachelorette.

Will Kaitlyn Bristowe find love among 25 guys during the upcoming season of the Bachelorette? Time, and a few spoilers, will tell all. However, there is one thing that is certain — expect to see at least one of Kaitlyn's rejected guys mingling with some other Bachelor and Bachelorette alum on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise that will premiere on August 2.
