With summer fast approaching the half million dollar question on everyone’s mind or at least on every super fan’s mind is, will Big Brother 22 premiere this summer? The current Covid-19 pandemic has certainly put the world on hold as we struggle to get this virus under control. As a result CBS has been reluctant to release the premiere date until the current social distancing restrictions have been lifted. We recently saw how as things got worse, Big Brother Canada was forced to cancel season 8 only a few weeks in. As for Big Brother 22, casting calls were also cancelled across the country. Online submissions have remained open for hopefuls to get creative with their applications.
WILL BIG BROTHER 22 STILL PREMIERE THIS SUMMER?
CBS states that even during the Covid pandemic they’re “optimistic” about the show airing this summer.
CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl told the The Hollywood Reporter the status of this season of Big Brother and Love Island?
“We are hoping to get into production for both of those shows this summer. The key difference on those shows is the turnaround time is quick. Big Brother airs live shows every week. Love Island is essentially a one-day turnaround. If we can get into production and we certainly anticipate that, we anticipate having those shows on this summer.”
When asked if production should be able to resume, Kahl says the network will take all precautions to protect the casts and crew. Everyone’s health and safety is going to be taken into consideration.
“We still hope to have [Big Brother] on the air this summer, it could be a little later than usual but we’re still optimistic about getting those on.

On May 22, Robyn Kass, the casting director for Big Brother tweeted the following tweet where she stated that the BB22 applications are closed and that all the semi finalists have been contacted. This is fantastic news as it shows that not everything has been put on hold and that they’re optimistic about still having the season. What will likely happen is the season will have a later premiere date than normal, which will likely push the season finale later into the fall. CBS will likely be looking to fill more of its fall tv time slots as the production of all other shows have ground to a halt.

WHO WILL BE IN THE CAST OF BIG BROTHER 22?
Your guess is as good as mine. The specific casting information is never released this early. However given the last All-Stars season was BB7 in 2006, we’re definitely overdue for one, casting has been severely restricted, BB Alum have an excuse to self-isolate, and Survivor was an All-Winners season… I think it just might be an All-Stars season. And the biggest reason I think its going to be anb All-Stars season is because I’ve been saying its going to be an All-Stars for the last 4 years and I’ve lost far to many Kraken bets with Simon.
WHO WILL HOST BIG BROTHER 22?
Julie Chen of course!
