Until this abrupt halt, the fourth season of the popular ABC reality dating series was in full production mode and was scheduled to premiere on Aug. 8. It's unclear how this development will impact the premiere date.

The cast of the new season of Bachelor in Paradise features 16 past Bachelor and Bachelorette suitors. Eight women from the most recent season of The Bachelor who had been vying for Nick Viall's heart -- including Corinne Olympios -- were among the female contestants.
