The cast and crew for the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise are back in Sayulita, Mexico and filming has resumed. Although there were numerous reports that production would begin again this weekend, host Chris Harrison made it official with an Instagram photo.
Harrison, 45, didn’t reveal which cast members have already arrived in Mexico. Instead, he shared a photo of the Paradise production crew setting up their cameras and gear at the Playa Escondida beachfront resort.
“Almost Paradise,” Chris captioned the Instagram pic, perhaps signaling that the drama fans love to watch is about to get started — again. (Note: Chris has since taken the photo down, but replaced it with a photo below that shows him with a member of the production crew.)
Of course, one can only hope production doesn’t have to stop again like it did when Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson’s on-camera hookup led to a sexual misconduct investigation and brief hiatus for the cast and crew.
Filming for the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise will be extended through July 5, one week later than previously scheduled.
Almost everyone from the original cast is either back in Mexico or will be arriving soon. However, E Online reports that Corinne Olympios was not asked to return to the show. There are multiple reports that state that DeMario Jackson has turned down ABC’s offer to come back for another shot at finding love.
According to a previous report by the Inquisitr, Amanda Stanton has confirmed that she headed back to Paradise on Wednesday, June 21. here are unconfirmed rumors that she’s hoping to reconnect with Wells Adams who has replaced Jorge the Bartender this season.
In addition to Amanda, the rest of the original cast is rumored to be back in Paradise, including Robby Hayes, Raven Gates, Alexis Waters, Alex Woytkiw, Derek Peth, twins Haley and Emily Ferguson, Lacey Mark, Kristina Schulman, Nick Bevenutti, Diane Maltby, Taylor Nolan, Ben Zorn, Jasmine Goode, Vinny Ventiera.
Who else is in Paradise — or heading there soon? The list is long — guys and girls from previous seasons of the Bachelor and Bachelorette will be arriving over the next week to appear on various episodes.
And that includes at least seven guys from Rachel’s season of the Bachelorette. ABC has not released their names because their eliminations have yet to air.

Dean Unglert, who makes it to the final four on Rachel’s season and, according to a previous report by the Inquisitr, Dean found a love interest during the first few days of filming.
