The dust surrounding the "Bachelor in Paradise" fiasco is now clearing. Following the abrupt suspension of the reality TV show's production last June 11, ABC has announced that they are pushing through with the fourth season soon. Variety broke the news, reporting that production will carry on with a target air date of late summer.

As ABC released a statement about the developments in the investigation, cast member Corrine Olympios, whose name has been linked to a scandal with co-cast member DeMario Jackson, is also launching her own investigation with the help of her lawyers.

Corrine Olympios' camp continues investigation

As per the producers of "Bachelor in Paradise," there was no "sexual misconduct" found during their investigation. Cast member Corinne Olympios, who soon after the event claimed she was a "victim," hired a lawyer, Martin Singer, who also had a few things to say about the investigation.

As per Variety, he said in a statement that it was the complaints from the producers that made "Bachelor in Paradise" shut down production, and not his client's complaints "against anyone." In addition, Singer commented that it's also unsurprising that ABC claims there was no "wrongdoing" found in their investigation and that he's determined to pursue their own investigation with Olympios.

ABC refuses to release tapes of Corrine Olympios during the night in question

ABC remains adamant in protecting the identities of those involved in the investigation, despite the public already knows it was about Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson. According to E! News, ABC's statement read, "Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident."

The network claimed that the tapes did not show that "the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy." According to the statement, the investigation was conducted with the aid of a third party law firm and that there was no "wrongdoing" that occurred that night.

'BIP' to target new season late summer

With the current developments of "Bachelor in Paradise," production is seeing a later premiere date for the upcoming fourth season. Sources close to the production told Variety that they are looking to bring back the fourth season cast members to shoot the upcoming season, which is set to be released later this month. For now, ABC has not confirmed or denied such statements.
