June 20 (UPI) — Bachelor in Paradise will premiere its fifth season in August.

The ABC reality competition will return to television with a two-hour episode Aug. 7, the network announced in a press release Wednesday.

Bachelor in Paradise features former contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Jade Roper, Tanner Tolbert, Carly Waddell and Evan Bass are among the fan favorites who have appeared on the show.

Production on Season 4 was suspended in 2017 following concerns about an encounter between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios. The season premiered in August after ABC ultimately found no evidence of sexual misconduct.

Bachelor in Paradise alums Ashely Iaconetti and Jared Haibon got engaged this week. The couple first met during Bachelor in Paradise Season 2, and reconnected after their respective appearances on Bachelor Winter Games and Bachelor in Paradise Australia.
