ABC has announced its 2017-2018 schedule, revealing the timeslots for fall, and announcing new specials, including one involving "The Little Mermaid."

ABC announced a new "Bachelor" spin-off is on the way – "The Bachelor Winter Games" -- taking alums from previous "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" seasons.

Also announced was a new "Dancing with the Stars" spin-off – "Dancing with the Stars Junior." The series will pair celeb kids and children of celebrities with pro junior ballroom dancers. It will debut in Spring 2018, ABC announced.
