More details about the Celebrity Big Brother 2022 season

There are 15 episodes of the show this season, all taking place in the month of February. The season itself is going to be much shorter than a summer installment, primarily because it is difficult to get celebrities to commit even this long.

The Big Brother live feeds are also back, with subscribers able to tune in and see what the celebrities are up to outside of the weekly episodes. CBS is advertising that the feeds will be turned on after the season premiere on Wednesday, February 2.

Here is a breakdown of the first week of episodes, with quite a few hours already built into the primetime schedule at CBS. Julie is already hinting that there are some big moments ahead and that they will lead to a lot of headlines.

According to Julie, the Celebrity Big Brother evictions will take place on Fridays and Mondays, meaning more than one person is going to get evicted during each calendar week. The sped-up process for the celebrities should lead to a lot of drama and excitement for Big Brother fans.

This season is expected to be followed very closely by Big Brother alums, meaning social media will be buzzing with thoughts, comments, predictions, and critiques from people who have played the game before. That should only add to the enjoyment that Big Brother fans are able to get from this brand new BB Celeb season.

Celebrity Big Brother 3 airs on CBS during February 2022.
