Big Brother Fall Season on CBS All Access Only

The Big Brother Fall season on  CBS All Access rumors have finally been confirmed. The network has officially announced the next season of the show will premiere this fall, and will only be available to watch with a subscription to their streaming service.

BIG BROTHER host Julie Chen. BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 87 HD cameras -- seven more than last year -- and more than 100 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000. BIG BROTHER's three-hour premiere event spans two nights, with two-hours on Wednesday, June 22 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) and one-hour on Thursday, June 23 (9:00 -- 10:00 PM ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

For diehard fans, this is sure to come as somewhat of a mixed blessing. While having Big Brother Over the Top (not Big Brother 19 – that will be next summer) coming up right on the heels of the current season is pretty awesome, not being able to watch episodes on regular television is certainly a letdown. On the other hand, for those who regularly subscribe to the Big Brother Live Feeds every season, there won’t be any additional cost involved — since the CBS All Access Pass will grant access to both the Live Feeds and the new season’s episodes as well.

There have been rumors floating around about a Big Brother fall season and possibly being available only through the CBS streaming service, like the new Star Trek: Discovery series. The network finally confirmed those rumors with an announcement to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to THR, the new season will only run for ten weeks, compared to the 12 or 13 weeks we’re used to with the normal show. A theme for the show has not yet been announced, but casting is most likely well underway or already finished, since the Big Brother Over the Top premiere is slated to happen just a week after the Big Brother 18 finale.

We can’t help but think the CBS All Access series is likely to be a full newbie cast. Especially after we had veterans again on Big Brother 18. Although it wasn’t part of the official announcement, rumor has it that longtime casting director Robyn Kass is not overseeing the Big Brother 19 cast. Instead, the cast was reportedly chosen by the same folks who do Survivor. Interesting…

We will, of course, be adding the fall season to our coverage here at Big Brother Access. Although having more of the show to dive into so soon is rather exciting on our end, we can’t help but wonder if back to back seasons might not be a bit too much for viewers, who may choose to skip BBOTT entirely and just wait for BB19 next year. What do you think? Will you be watching?
