Will "#Bachelor in Paradise" make a comeback? Host #Chris Harrison didn't address the situation initially, but finally broke his silence on Tuesday. Now that the cast members are back home and Warner Bros. has started an investigation into the alleged misconduct in Mexico, Chris is trying to squelch the rumors.

On Tuesday, People magazine published Harrison's official statement, one that points to some serious misinformation about what happened in Paradise. Although there have been multiple reports that contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios were involved in sexual misconduct, Chris did not name names in his statement.

Problems in 'Paradise'

Here's what Chris had to say about the situation, including some rather vague information as to whether or not the show will air in August.

He starts by stating that he knows we've all heard about what happened during filming. Chris goes on to say that he can officially confirm that production has indeed been halted. However, he notes that "out of respect to all involved" he can't say much about what transpired in Mexico last week.

Although he would have preferred to stay quiet about the situation, he notes that "with all the s being put out there" he needed to clear the air.

Cast safety prompted decision to suspend filming

“Let me start by saying the safety and care of the cast and crew of our show is of the utmost importance to us," Chris says in his statement issued to the media.

He goes on to say that the investigation that is being handled by Warner Bros. is moving quickly. When all the information is gathered, they will have a decision about the future of the show.

Harrison stressed in his statement that there is "a lot of misinformation out there," noting that various accounts in the media may not be accurate."

What's next?

So now, fan will have to wait and see if the cast will be called back to Mexico to resume filming. According to Reality Steve, the season has been canceled. And that makes sense considering they flew everyone home and many contestants are tweeting "RIP Paradise."

Whether the show will return next season is still unknown. For now, fans have the weekly "The Bachelorette" episodes to look forward to. Then, without "Paradise," there will be a gap in programming until December when "#The Bachelor: Winter Games" premieres. And of course, 2018 will kick off with a brand-new season of "The Bachelor," so at least there is some programming for Bachelor Nation to look forward to.
