Celebrity Big Brother is coming back to CBS for a second season. After the Big Brother 20 cast garnered plenty of attention for the show last summer, the network hopes the celebrity version will be as popular this time around.

While the cast for Celebrity Big Brother has not yet been announced, there are plenty of names being tossed around social media. Right now, there isn’t much known about the second season of the show except the schedule and the basics.

The premiere of Celebrity Big Brother Season 2

It was announced a while back that January 21, 2019, would be the season premiere of Celebrity Big Brother. The will last for three weeks, airing several nights a week for the duration of the competition.

Anticipation is high for the premiere of Celebrity Big Brother, especially if the cast lines up to be as spectacular as it is rumored to be. With the premiere being on a Monday, it will rival several already established reality television programs.

The Celebrity Big Brother cast

At this point, the Celebrity Big Brother cast has not been announced. It will likely be coming up soon, with announcements usually happening a week or so before the houseguests enter the house for the first time.

Last year, Omarosa Manigault and Brandi Glanville joined the inaugural season of Celebrity Big Brother. It was a memorable season of drama, chaos and plenty of competition.

Who can you expect to see this time around? Well, if the hints dropped by REALvega4sure on Twitter are any indication, it looks like some familiar faces will be entering the Big Brother house in 2019.

One of the hints looks like it may be Caitlyn Jenner joining the cast this time around. She is no stranger to reality television and with her own show not being renewed, this is another way for her to soak up the spotlight.

Another clue dropped seems to point to RuPaul, though that wouldn’t make a lot of sense. Perhaps it is a famed drag queen from one of the seasons? Anything is possible, especially with open-ended clues given.

Finally, it looks like another political person will be on the show. Above we mentioned Omarosa was on Season 1 of Celebrity Big Brother, so who could it be this time around? Some sleuths seem to suggest that it may be Anthony Scaramucci. This could be interesting and being that he has admitted to being a Big Brother fan, it seems a likely bet.

Celebrity Big Brother premieres Monday, January 21, 2019, at 8/7c on CBS.
