Summer doesn’t officially begin until Big Brother begins – looks like reality TV fans will finally get their summer wish as CBS and Global have announced that Big Brother will return for its 22nd season beginning Wednesday, August 5.
2020 marks the U.S. version of the hit international franchise’s 20th anniversary. This year’s All-Star edition will open with a 2-hour “move in” special that will see returning houseguests get a chance to re-enter the Big Brother house live ET on Wednesday, August 5 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. This year will mark the second edition of the “All-Star” season, the first edition took place in 2006.
Following its premiere, Big Brother will air Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. and will be hosted by Julie Chen Moonves. The roster of All-Stars will be announced closer to the premiere date and will feature previous winners, finalists, legends, memorable personalities and some of the best to never win the game.

Production of Big Brother will follow specific health and safety protocols for COVID-19 with the welfare of everyone involved as the highest priority. “Houseguests will undergo a quarantine period prior to production and will be tested several times prior to entering the House. Once inside, they will be tested weekly during the season and have no contact with any crew members, and all supplies delivered will be disinfected. In addition, the live show will not have a studio audience.”
