Don’t unscrew the cork on that bottle of wine just yet, Bachelorette fans. New episodes of the ABC reality series generally air on Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern, however, the dating show is taking a short break.

Due to a combination of back-to-back episodes the previous week and the Fourth of July holiday on Tuesday, episode seven of The Bachelorette will not air July 3. Instead, viewers who missed episode six on Tuesday can watch the rerun during the usual airtime.

The hiatus comes after star Rachel Lindsay sent a whopping nine men home in back-to-back episodes. That leaves just six bachelors left in the running for her heart — Alex, Peter, Matt, Bryan, Eric and Dean.

The Bachelorette will resume Monday, July 10. According to a TV Guide synopsis, Rachel will take the remaining contestants to Geneva. Three lucky men will get a one-on-one date with Rachel, while the rest will have to endure a group date involving a boat ride and castle. The pressure will be on, as only four men will move onto the hometown dates.

Who will be sent home? And who will have their relationship with Rachel progress? Watch a sneak peek of the upcoming episodes here.
