ABC has announced a new premiere date for Bachelor in Paradise season four after temporarily shutting down production due to allegations of misconduct. The network also released the cast list for the upcoming season which notably includes the two cast members that were at the center of the scandal.
Season four will kick off with a two-night premiere on Monday, August 14 at 8/7c and will continue on Tuesday, August 15 at 8/7c. The new season will run over the course of six weeks and will include the highly anticipated wedding of season three couple Carly Waddell and Evan Bass.
"I am very happy to be appearing on the Bachelor in Paradise special," Olympios said in a statement.
Prior to Olympios' announcement, Jackson already confirmed his return, saying he's looking forward to make amends and thank those who stuck by him amid his recent scandal.
"They've been very supportive of me throughout this whole entire thing and I want to all thank them, face to face, give them all hugs, bro-out, sis-out or whatever," Jackson told TMZ
. "They've been so helpful. I mean, I don't think you guys understand the support that I've had from castmates and producers. I want to just give them all a big ol' hug and tell them how much I love them."
Fans can expect additional bachelors and bachelorettes to be announced at a later date.
