Uh.

After season four production for Bachelor in Paradise was halted (opens in new tab) earlier this summer, it was a real question if the show would continue on. The production's investigation into what happened between contestants Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson didn't find any wrongdoing (opens in new tab), a conclusion that was first contested and then seemingly accepted (opens in new tab) by Olympios' legal team. But the investigation did lead to changes regarding the show's hook-up policies (opens in new tab).

And now, the trailer for the actually happening season four is here. Its tagline: "The sun had almost set. Summer was almost ruined. Paradise was almost lost...Until it wasn't."

As first debuted (opens in new tab) on People, the overall tone is one of despair and then jubilance. Pulling mostly from, it seems, Twitter user feedback, the trailer starts off all darkness and shadows as fans despair of the show's brief suspension. But then everything's all well, as shots of the current season come in. Everything's all right!

It's an interesting direction for the show to take, as the announcer cheerily announces the new season's return August 14. But hey, people are clearly psyched for its return.
