What are the 3 New 2021 ABC Premieres About?

The Celebrity Dating Game

We all may remember The Dating Game from 1963-1975. ABC is reviving the popular dating game show by putting a modern twist on it to help a star-studded lineup of single celebrities find love, The Celebrity Dating Game. The premise of the show will very much mimic the original hosted by Jim Lange. Each episode will showcase two celebrities who must pick one suitor from a panel of three bachelors or bachelorettes based on how they like their answers to a group of questions. The bachelors/bachelorettes won’t know just which celebrity they are vying for as their identity remains a mystery. However, host, Michael Bolton will offer clues via hilarious performances.

The June 14, 2021 premiere will be hosted by Zooey Deschanel and Michael Bolton.


Ultimate Surfer

Get ready for this new challenge show – just in time for summer! Ultimate Surfer will follow men and women as they compete in individual and team challenges. Every week contestants will be eliminated until it leaves two men and two women as finalists vying for the champion titles of Ultimate Surfer and to get a chance to complete on the WSL World Tour.

Ultimate Surfer will premiere on August 16, 2021 on ABC.


When Nature Calls

When Nature Calls is one of ABC’s 3 new series for their 2021 summer lineup. It’s a one-hour unscripted comedy. Hailing from a BBC Studios format, this show will give viewers a look at what comes out of the mouths of teeny-tiny frogs, beatboxing badgers, and more in beautiful footage from all across the world.

When Nature Calls will premiere on ABC June 17, 2021.
