It's hard to believe how quickly this summer has been flying by, but here we are. The Bachelorette is about to celebrate its final rose ceremony, and in less than two weeks, Bachelor in Paradise will premiere. And now, we have the first official cast photo from BIP

As everyone in the world who doesn't live under a rock already knows, this season has already drummed up a fair amount of controversy ... enough to almost cancel the season altogether. But it's definitely happening, and this photo shows off all the familiar faces we can expect to see on the premiere ... Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson included. 

Here's the pic:

We see so many of our faves in this pic, including some of the guys from Rachel's season. Dean is there (swoon!), as are Diggy and Matt. And the women are looking pretty good, too. Raven, Alexis, and Kristina (from Nick Viall's season) are all there, and Amanda Stanton (from Ben Higgins's season) is back for another round as well. 

News about BIP has definitely been a bit of a roller coaster lately, but we're so glad it's happening, and this group photo is only getting us more psyched for the season ahead. We're only a little disappointed Alexis isn't posing in her shark/dolphin costume. Okay, maybe more than a little. 

See ya soon, Paradise!
