When will Big Brother return?

CBS has not officially announced when Big Brother 22 will premiere. Season 22 was confirmed when the network announced its new year-round 2019-2020 primetime programming lineup back in May 2019.

Any announcement of a premiere has been further complicated by the various shutdowns in production due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Hollywood Reporter wrote in April that CBS may be without one of its summer stalwarts due to precautions from COVID-19. However, though casting calls have been cancelled for season 22, casting director Robyn Kass has been encouraging prospects to apply online.


There is a bit of evidence supporting Season 22 of Big Brother will still be happening in 2020. It comes from a recent tweet from the show's casting director, Robyn Kass, who was a bit frustrated with applicants sending in late submissions, and had to air out her thoughts on that on Twitter.

The #BB22 application has been open for 6 months, yet every year we get flooded w emails the day after the deadline from people pleading to still apply. Sorry, itís the same deadline for everyone applying on line. #SIXMONTHS #noregrets

181 people are talking about this.

So, while this tweet did come before the report that Big Brother won't have new episodes to start summer, one has to wonder why Robyn Kass would still be complaining about the deadline for Season 22 applicants. It would appear the show is still sifting through who will appear on the season, and if that wasn't the case, the deadline to apply might eventually be extended, if the show wasn't going to return until early 2021 or later. Otherwise, why would it matter if applications were a couple days late at this stage?
