Freeform has greenlit a "Bachelor" spinoff starring the ABC show's most-recent engaged couple, Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell.

"Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After" will follow the pair as they prepare for their wedding. All the while, Ben will explore getting involved in the political realm and Lauren will try and establish her identity post-"Bachelor," Freeform said. During the show some fan favorites from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" will stop by to visit and share their own advice on life after the show.

The series is scheduled to air in October.
