The Bachelorette season 17 premiere debuts Monday, June 7 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. 

Everything's coming up roses and it's time to watch The Bachelorette season 17 online, even without cable, to see Katie Thurston's journey to find love. The Bachelorette 2021 summer edition kicks off with the premiere episode, which will see Katie meet her cast of 29 men — plus, maybe one more if the spoilers are correct. Oh, and speaking of The Bachelorette spoilers, a lot of fans think Katie spoiled her own season via an Instagram post.

This is just the first of two Bachelorette seasons this year, since Katie will be followed by Michelle Young in the fall. Both vied for roses from Matt James in The Bachelor, with Michelle finishing as the runner-up and Katie exiting in 11th place. But Katie endeared herself to Bachelor Nation for her forthright sex-positive attitude (she carried a vibrator during her arrival) and standing up to bullying within the house.

The Bachelorette season 17 won't have host Chris Harrison, who stepped aside during the racial controversy that rocked the franchise. Instead, he's replaced by former Bachelorette leads Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe. 

Here is everything to know about how to watch The Bachelorette season 17 online, plus watch a promo below:
