Big Brother 25 Starting Later than Expected with August 2nd Premiere Date!

We will have to wait a bit longer for the 25th season of Big Brother US to start. Unfortunately due to the ongoing writers strike, CBS announced that Big Brother 25 will not premiere until Wednesday August 2, 2023. This will push the finale to the end of October or the first week in November depending on how long the season is this year. Last season was only 81 days, which was considerably shorter than the average. This season will be any where from 81 days to 99 days depending on how it fits into the fall scheduling (it will more likely be shorter than longer). From the sounds of it CBS is attempting to cover the fall scheduling gaps by pushing Big Brother late into the fall. If the late start sounds familiar, it’s because in 2020, season 22 premiered on August 5 due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. The last writers strike was in 2008 when CBS slapped together a spring edition of Big Brother in an attempt to fill their regular scripted programming gaps.

“In a special 90-minute episode, Big Brother premieres its milestone 25th season as a group of all-new Houseguests moves into the Big Brother House. Expect the unexpected this summer with a season full of twists and turns and throwbacks to the last 24 seasons.”

Fun Statistic Facts about last season:

“Last summer, viewers watched over 12.3 billion minutes of BIG BROTHER on the Network, Paramount+ and CBS app. The summer reality staple was also up +17% in streaming viewership in 2022 from 2021.”

Get ready for an all new batch of newbies that will enter the house in an attempt to lock in their tiktok fame and increase their social media followers as they battle it out for the title as the winner of the quarter century season. The grand prize amount hasn’t officially been announced, however it will likely be $750,000 which was increased from $500,000 starting in season 23. The all new cast will likely be released a couple weeks prior to the premiere date. We would hope to be posting the cast (photos/bios/videos) / newly redesigned house photos & tour videos / twists / etc. some time between July 19th and August 1st.

Big Brother 25 weekly episode schedule:

  • Sundays (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT)
  • Wednesdays (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT)
  • Thursdays (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT)
