Work on a new season of Big Brother has already begun.
And now there are rumors about the season arriving during the upcoming winter months.
Big Brother 25 ends in November, with the latest season lasting 100 days for the houseguests.
The season was extended to provide CBS with content during the ongoing Hollywood strikes.
Recent news on the status of the strikes is not good, suggesting they could drag on for a while.
Without regular content, CBS will look for more reality and game shows to air in winter and spring.
Addressing rumors of a new Big Brother season
As previously reported by Monsters and Critics, production has begun on Big Brother 26.
Details about when that season will air have not been revealed, but it is very early for the process to begin.
Meanwhile, some new rumors about a possible winter season of Big Brother have surfaced.
Twitter user Spoiler Girl now states that she is confident a new season will arrive before Summer 2024.
“I have some news. Get ready for a Winter Season, I’m hearing that it’s about a 90 % chance that you’re getting a second season before the Summer,” reads the tweet.
So Spoiler Girl isn’t even claiming that it is a rumor, she is telling Big Brother fans to be ready for a bonus season.
“I really hope they bring back returning players but the theme I’ve heard is Legends/Celebrities. #BB25,” she added to the end of the tweet.
Legends could refer to former winners, while celebrities could mean people outside Big Brother could enter the house for a shortened season.
We have to take the rumors from Spoiler Girl with a grain of salt, but it is exciting to think about bonus seasons of Big Brother.
