"The Bachelor" star Nick Viall is returning to television. The former reality star, who has appeared on "The Bachelorette" twice, and went looking for love on "Bachelor in Paradise," did a stint as "The Bachelor," and later competed on "Dancing With The Stars," is returning to television after his recent split with fiance, Vanessa Grimaldi. According to reports, Nick will be returning to his network of choice, ABC, for a brand new role, and fans have never seen Viall on television like this before. It should be very interesting to see Nick in a new light.

Nick is returning to ABC

E! Online reports that Nick Viall won't be returning to reality TV this time around. In fact he has landed his very first scripted role. The former "Bachelor" star will be appearing on ABC family comedy series, "Speechless," which stars actress Minnie Driver. Nick can be seen in an upcoming episode in a guest starring role, but he won't be playing himself. Viall will reportedly being playing a character named Tyson, who is described as a very good looking B-movie actor, who is "a little too method." Tyson will befriend JJ on the set of one of his movies, and will later put on a very dramatic performance to help get JJ out of trouble with his parents, Maya (Minnie Driver) and Jimmy (John Ross Bowie).

Will Viall's new role leave fans 'speechless?'

Nick Viall's episode of "Speechless" is set to air sometime in November, and fans will get to see the former "Bachelor" on ABC one more time before he's dethroned by the upcoming "Bachelor," Arie Luyendyk Jr., whose season is set to premiere in January of 2018. That, along with the brand new series, "Bachelor Winter Games," which will feature fan favorite Peter Kraus, should have fans of the franchise fully satisfied for the upcoming months.

Nick and Vanessa's breakup leaves fans wondering if Viall will turn to reality TV to find love again

As many fans know, Nick and Vanessa's engagement didn't work out, and many fans wondered if Viall was finally done looking for love on reality TV. While it seems that Nick won't be back, he is one of the franchises most recognized faces, and anything can happen in the future.

Hopefully, the new "Bachelor," Arie Luyendyk Jr., will have better luck than the last two "Bachelor" stars before him. Currently, no major spoilers have been revealed about Arie's season, which has already started to film, with fans spotting Arie out on dates in places like Florida. They've even spotted ABC's new leading man kissing one of his contestants during a one on one date.
