CBS Renews ‘Big Brother’ For Two More Seasons
CBS is keeping Big Brother around for the long haul: the summer reality series has just been renewed for two more seasons, which will be the 19th and 20th seasons, respectively.
The two new seasons are not to be confused with the upcoming digital series of Big Brother, which is due to air this fall exclusively on CBS All-Access (more on that below). These two new seasons will be part of the show’s primary run, airing in the summer of 2017 and summer 2018. Julie Chen will remain on-board as host.
Currently, the show airs on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8:00 PM, and Thursdays 9:00 PM, and it doesn’t appear as though the network plans on changing that schedule. That said, we could see small changes to the production itself. For instance, this season’s house is outfitted with 87 HD cameras, which is seven more than we had with Season 17. CBS could decide to add more cameras or they could scale it back somewhat, depending on the arrangement of the house. Then again, maybe nothing will change. Hell, it’s all just idle speculation at this point. What we do know is that Big Brother isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
