Bachelor Pad” will not be back, but the former contestants appear to be trading the hot tub for paradise this summer.

According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” ABC has set plans for “Bachelor in Paradise,” a new spinoff of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” franchises set to debut this summer.

The castoffs from past seasons will once again search for love, this time in an undisclosed tropical location.

“THR” reports that the show will “feature new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in ‘Bachelor’ history, plus all the usual romance, drama and tears we’ve come to expect from the ‘Bachelor’ franchise.”

The news comes after the most recent season of “The Bachelor,” starring Juan Pablo Galavis, which was widely seen as a bust.

The new season of “The Bachelorette,” starring Andi Dorfman, will bow on Monday, May 19 at 9pm.
