The Big Brother 26 cast will be a group of all-new players.

The production team has revealed that an “all-new group of houseguests” is moving into the Big Brother house this summer.

Fans pleading for no returners will get their wish, and some new faces will be introduced soon.

It’s been a while since the producers used returning players, with the Big Brother 22 season being the last time.

For the BB22 cast, producers invited popular players from over the years, and they called it Big Brother: All-Stars 2. Cody Calafiore was declared the winner that season.

The Big Brother 26 start date has also been revealed, giving fans a two-day season premiere that should be packed with excitement.

An all-new cast for Big Brother 22 – But possible twists?

Even though this is a group of all-new players for Summer 2024, the producers could still introduce a twist or two.

Survivor legend Cirie Fields was invited to be on the BB25 cast last summer. It allowed Cirie to play with her son, Jared Fields.

The twist was met with mixed reactions from fans, with many people disappointed that it gave the duo an advantage. But Cirie did provide some great moments during episodes and on the Big Brother live feeds.

Many other twist ideas are possible, including some used in the past. But maybe the producers have something new planned. Some Big Brother fans have asked for a season of duos.

BB26 cast members are playing for a $750,000 cash prize — raised from the $500,000 prize in place for the first 22 seasons.
