CBS announced today that Celebrity Big Brother is being brought back for Season 2. The good news follows a successful debut outing of the reality spin-off, which premiered earlier this year for a two-and-a-half week run.

Airing in February during the Winter Olympics, the series fared well against the games with consistently solid ratings. While regular Big Brother typically airs during the summer months, it's likely that CBS will keep the celebrity edition as a mid-season option in 2018-2019.

In Celebrity Big Brother, famous actors, athletes, and entertainers are sequestered in the Big Brother house, where they play an abbreviated version of the well-known reality series. Isolated from the outside world and constantly under surveillance by a house full of cameras, the house guests must use their social, mental, and physical abilities as they compete for the chance to win it all.
