Just months after viewers watched Ben Higgins propose to Lauren Bushnell on The Bachelor, the two are planning their return to TV.

ABC -- the network behind The Bachelor and The Bachelorette -- confirmed on Wednesday that the newly engaged couple will be starring in their own reality show, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, that will air on the network's sister channel, Freeform TV. The series will "follow the happy couple as they prepare to walk down the aisle and begin their brand-new life together while navigating the real world after the splendor of The Bachelor's exotic dates and fantasy suites has ended."

"We’re so excited for everyone to see our new series #BenandLauren: Happily Ever After (@BenandLaurenTV) on @FreeformTV this October!" Higgins tweeted.

When ET caught up with the couple in March, they seemed ready to start their life together, and may have hinted that they would be doing so in front of cameras. "[Lauren]'s a beautiful person who I can't wait to share my life with and show people that I'm sharing my life with her," the 28-year-old software salesman said. "I think that's the part that I am most excited for."

"[To] do whatever it takes to keep that commitment going forever [and] that's why I think it'll work. That's why I have no doubt that it will work."
