Alas, Bachelor Nation, Season 19 of The Bachelorette reached its inevitable end in early September. On the bright side, Bachelor in Paradise is well underway!

Bachelorette cast member Michael Allio is on his way to finding love in Season 8, and he’s joined by a long list of fan favorites.

Along with many ladies from Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor, guys from Katie Thurston and Michelle Young’s seasons of the Bachelorette, as well as men from Gabby and Rachel's season, are in Mexico looking for romance. The drama has been exciting so far, and we can definitely expect more. (Dare we say, it might just be the most dramatic season of Bachelor in Paradise yet?)

But what is Season 8's release schedule and when is the finale?

What's the release schedule for Season 8 of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’?

Showrunners are switching things up in Season 8 of BiP. While the series previously kicked off in August, this season of BiP came out a month later due to the delayed start of Gabby and Rachel's season of The Bachelorette.

But wait, there's more! While long-time Bachelor fans know Monday to be our favorite night of the week, the TV schedule also changed, and for the better. Following the premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 27, the ABC series aired not once but twice a week.

Yes, you read that right! Starting on Monday, Oct. 3, new episodes of BiP released every Monday and Tuesday up until the final weeks. That means twice the eliminations and double the drama. Then new episodes will air Monday, Nov. 7, but not Tuesday, Nov. 8. The following week, new episodes will air Nov. 14 and 15, and then the next week is the finale!

Jesse Palmer took up the mantle of host in Season 8, while Wells Adams returned as the resident BiP bartender. In an interview with PEOPLE, Wells described the new season as “very sexy,” adding that “this season was different than years past."

He explained, "When it comes to Paradise, I think it's the best show that we make. It's fun and it's funny, and it's very successful. The mission statement is for people to get engaged and have long-lasting, meaningful relationships. That show kills."

But how can you watch live? Read on to find out more!

When is the 2022 finale of 'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 8?

The finale of Bachelor in Paradise 2022 is set to air on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 21 and 22 on ABC at 8 p.m. We fully expect at least one engagement, but we really have no idea what's going to happen, especially because it seems like new people are still coming onto the beach!

Between Logan's rocky relationship with Kate, and Victoria's newly invigorated relationship with Johnny (although Alex is still there watching every move), it's clear that this finale is going to be a doozy.
