Big Brother 2017 Spoilers: When Does Big Brother 19 Premiere?

Big Brother 19 fans: get ready to tell your loved ones that you cannot engage in social activity until late September/early October. The chilly weather may make it seem like summer is far away, but it’s not. Every Big Brother fan knows that summer means one important thing: the premiere of Big Brother 2017.

Big Brother 19 is one of the summer’s most highly anticipated premieres. Yesterday, CBS published the official press release for its major summer programming.

It revealed that Big Brother 19 premieres on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 at 8/7c. The 2-hour premiere will be followed by an hour episode on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at 9/8c, and then a Sunday episode on July 2, 2017 at 8/7c.

Big Brother 19 starts its regular three-night, hourly episodes on July 5, 2017.
This season Big Brother continues its regular routine of 8/7c Wednesday and Sunday episodes, and a Thursday, probably live eviction episode, at 9/8c.

Big Brother 2017 premieres a week later than Big Brother 18. This could mean that Big Brother will air a few episodes less than last year, which likely means less houseguests or more double evictions. We’d prefer the latter. It could also just mean that CBS plans to end even later than last year, which could take the series into October 2017.

Big Brother 18 started with a two-night premiere, so changing it to one night seems to lean more towards the possibility of less houseguests.

Per usual, Big Brother fans can access live feeds through CBS All-Access. This costs about $6 a month for commercial filled programming, and almost $10 a month for commercial-free programming. For those new to Big Brother, CBS All-Access grants you access to all 18 prior seasons, and the infamous Big Brother Over the Top.

Big Brother fans can rejoice in knowing that Julie Chen will continue her hosting duties during Big Brother 2017.

Currently, CBS is auditioning future contestants, so rumors about twists and returnees shouldn’t start until closer to May or June.
