Corinne and DeMario will both join upcoming 'Bachelor in Paradise' reunion special

The drama is either over -- or just beginning.

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson are officially both slated to participate in the upcoming "Bachelor in Paradise" reunion special, more than a month after a sexual encounter between them led to a total production shutdown.

Olympios announced her involvement days after Jackson made the same decision himself: "I am very happy to be appearing on the 'Bachelor in Paradise' special," Olympios said in a statement obtained by People.

Jackson, for his part, is not only joining the "Paradise" reunion; he'll also participate in the "Bachelorette: Men Tell All" special. "I owe it to my cast mates," Jackson told TMZ. "They've been very supportive of me throughout this whole entire thing and I want to thank them all personally, face to face -- give them all hugs and bro out or sis out, or whatever. They've been so helpful."

The story behind "Bachelor in Paradise"'s temporary season 4 shutdown unfolded in early June. It's still unclear what exactly transpired as multiple convoluted accounts contradicted each other. What is known for sure is that Jackson and Olympios engaged in a sexual encounter as the cameras rolled -- and hours later, all hell broke loose.

A show producer, known to be close friends with Olympios, reportedly accused Jackson of taking advantage of a drunken Olympios. However, that narrative was quickly disputed as cast and crew members described a very different chain of events. An official investigation eventually concluded that no wrongdoing took place -- but the damage was done.

"It was stressful — for me, mostly for my mother," Jackson said in a subsequent interview with E! News. "My dad, he kept me extremely strong and kept me grounded and humble. But having your mom cry every day for something that you know you didn't do..."
