The hit reality series will be back next summer.
September 26, 2018
At the end of tonight's Big Brother finale, host Julie Chen announced that the reality show will be returning next summer for its 21st season. She also confirmed that the already-renewed Celebrity Big Brother is set to air its second season this winter.
The good news follows another successful run for the hit series, which year after year ranks as one of the summer's top rated shows. Airing three nights a week, each of its episodes consistently rank in the top 5 programs among adults 18-34. This current season in particular was also lauded by many fans as being one of its strongest outings in some time.
There have been questions recently about Chen's future with the Big Brother franchise. She abruptly left her other gig at CBS as co-host of The Talk earlier this month after her husband, Les Moonves, was ousted from his role as CEO and chairman of the network. While it is uncertain at this time as to whether Chen will stay on as the host of Big Brother, in making tonight's announcement she did say, "We will also see you again next summer."

How is this show still on. It’s an embarrassment.

I'm not surprised it got renewed. This show is really going down the toilet fast though. This season more than any other had some really obvious "script" moments that make me think this show in it's entirety is scripted. 3 "showmances" this year with one of the getting engaged in the finale, Very unlikable people on the show (other than Kayce), and they let a creepy sexual predator and overall gross little foul mouthed racist creep named JC to stay on after cameras show him rubbing on and kissing a guy who was asleep. Overall disgusting and pathetic.

the ratings were down from previous season. this show is a time filler during the summer when shows are on hiatus. that's why it was renewed.

How is this show still on the air? Just make it a Twitch stream already - no one in the age demo can possibly be watching it now!

@Michael - Big Brother Aires for 1 year in the Netherlands before it was on both the UK and the US in the summer of 2000, where it has run continuously.

@Dan - This will be the 2nd season of celebrity big brother... BBUK has been running for years and many of the American celebs have been going and playing the UK edition. Quite to the contrary of what you’re saying, the celeb edition was added last year to air opposite the Olympics and was a pretty good hit so they’re repeating it.

If recent events are any indication, the debut of the celebrity edition of "Big Brother" means the end is coming soon. We don't know when, but it will. When a game or reality show starts casting celebrities as contestants, it's a sign that said show's ratings are starting to slip because TV producers know that famous people draw in viewers.

I always looked forward to watching Big Brother, but this season was disappointing. The people were boring, and it was rigged more than any previous season I've watched. I stopped watching halfway through this season, due to it being rigged and CBS allowing a sexual predator (JC) continue being on the show. I don't know CBS promotes human garbage.
