As the current TV season comes to a close over the next couple months, that doesn’t mean we won’t have anything to watch during the summer hiatus. ABC has announced premiere dates for their summer lineup, including The Bachelorette, Wipeout and Rookie Blue.

Bachelor Pad won’t be on the air this year, but instead the network is offering three new shows. Motive is a crime drama that changes up the typical format by revealing the killer and victim at the start of each episode. Mistresses, based on a UK series, follows a group of four women on a path of self-discovery. (I wonder if it’s a dramatized version of Sex and the City.) And Whodunnit?, created by CSI‘s Anthony Zuiker, pits contestants against each other as they solve crimes (fake ones, of course) and determine who the killer is.
