‘Bachelor in Paradise’ and Other TV Shows That Halted Production

In case you haven’t heard the news, the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise is currently filming. Or at least it is again, after production finally resumed following a sexual assault scandal. But the Bachelor spinoff is just one of many TV shows to abruptly halt production.

Whether the cause is bad behavior, technical difficulties, or even death, productions stop for many reasons. Here are 10 TV shows that stopped filming unexpectedly.

1. Bachelor in Paradise

This spinoff of The Bachelor takes contestants from various seasons of the hit show, as well as The Bachelorette, and sends them to a beautiful city in Mexico to compete for love. But with the most recent season, which only recently began production, things are off to a rocky start.

News broke on Monday, June 11, 2017, that filming had ceased, at least for the time being. The reason? Contestants Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson were seen engaging in sexual activity, and a producer complained. There were also reports that one or both of the pair involved were heavily intoxicated. Though an investigation was conducted (including an examination of relevant footage), Warner Bros. eventually determined that no wrongdoing had taken place and confirmed that production will soon resume.
