CBS has picked up Big Brother for a 24th season. The good news was announced by host Julie Chen Moonves following Wednesday's season finale, which crowned the reality show's first ever African American winner.

On the air for over two decades, the veteran series continues to be one of TV's top-rated reality shows. Airing three nights a week, its episodes consistently draw solid viewership against its prime time competition.

In each season of Big Brother, a group of people move into a house together under the watchful eye of dozens of cameras that record their every move 24 hours a day. Each week one houseguest is voted out of the house until just one remains, receiving a $500,000 grand prize.

Look for Season 24 of Big Brother in the summer of 2022, with Julie Chen Moonves once again returning as host.
