Rachel Lindsay didn't find love with "#The Bachelor" star Nick Viall but she's hoping to find Mr. Right when she starts filming the upcoming season of "The Bachelorette." When does Rachel meet the 25 guys who will try to win her heart and when does the Season 13 premiere air on ABC?

Here are the latest details about the upcoming season including Nick's reaction to the announcement that the beautiful Texas lawyer will be handing out roses this spring.

Fans were surprised that ABC revealed the identity of the next "Bachelorette" star a month before "The Bachelor" season finale, especially because Rachel Lindsay is one of Nick's frontrunners.

Spoilers indicate that Rachel will make it past the hometown dates and won't be eliminated until after she spends the night with Nick in the Fantasy Suite. And before she starts taping her season, she will come face-to-face with Nick on the "Women Tell All' — but don't expect their reunion to be awkward

Nick is happy Rachel got the gig

One day after Jimmy Kimmel introduced Rachel as the next "Bachelorette" star, Nick Viall took to Twitter to offer his support to the 31-year-old Texas lawyer who made history as the "Bachelor" franchise's first black lead.

"My heart is full of joy for you Rachel," Nick tweeted. "Congrats!! You will be one hell of a Bachelorette!! Beauty & class.. you have it all!!" Nick went on to say, "No one better to show Bachelor Nation, & the world, the beauty of embracing diversity! So excited for you Rachel!"

ABC sets premiere date for Rachel's season

According to WetPaint, Rachel will start taping during the third week of March, right after "The Bachelor" finale airs on ABC.

Most of the men have already been cast for the show and they will be on their way to the Bachelor mansion in L.A. shortly before filming gets underway.

Blogger Reality Steve hasn't revealed who Rachel's guys are just yet but it won't be long before he starts releasing information about the men who will try to win her heart — or, at the very least, secure themselves a spot on the summer spinoff, "Bachelor in Paradise."

"The Bachelorette" Season 13 starring Rachel Lindsay will premiere at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, May 22, 2017.
