To no surprise, CBS will be inviting a whole new group of Houseguests over for the summer of 2021. The network has officially renewed the Big Brother TV series for a 23rd season with Julie Chen Moonves returning as host. Season 22 wraps tonight.
A competitive reality TV series, Big Brother typically airs three nights a week — Wednesdays (veto), Thursdays (eviction), and Sundays. The 22nd season is the second all-star season in the show’s 20-year history. The returning players are Christmas Abbott, David Alexander, Nicole Anthony, Dani Briones, Cody Calafiore, Kevin “KC” Campbell, Tyler Crispen, Bayleigh Dayton, Nicole Franzel, Memphis Garrett, Enzo Palumbo, Janelle Pierzina, Kaysar Ridha, Da’Vonne Rogers, Keesha Smith, and Ian Terry. Big Brother follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 94 HD cameras and 113 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week someone is voted out of the house. The last remaining Houseguest wins the grand prize of $500,000.
Here’s the renewal announcement from CBS:
