‘Big Brother 22’: CBS Plans to Continue With BB22

Big Brother 22 has been the talk of the summer due to the COVID-19 crisis threatening to keep it from airing. Yet, we recently confirmed that despite the spike in California cases, BB22 is still in the works. It looks like the show will go on as the workers union is currently in talks about how to go about production safely. So, our source has given us a new deadline for a premiere date that CBS is hoping to make.

Big Brother 22: CBS Still Wants Summer BB22

According to our source close to CBS, the company is still planning on having Big Brother 22 air. It should happen sometime near the end of the summer. It’s been up in the air due to the corona virus outbreak where the house is located on a sound stage in a studio lot in California. The state’s been seeing an uptick in coronavirus cases and the governor is enforcing stricter restrictions as the cases increase.

Yet, CBS is still trying their hardest to make Big Brother happen. It’ll be a lot of different production-wise. This is because CBS claims the safety of the cast and crew is the number one priority. But they’re trying to make it work and have set a deadline for when they want it to premiere says our source. It seems that the company is looking to premiere Big Brother by the third Wednesday in August. If not, they’ll reassess the situation and postponement.

CBS BB Crew Will Be Sequestered

Not only will the cast be sequestered for at least two weeks but now so will the crew. It looks like they’ll be doing some kind of rotating schedule since the show airs for almost three months each season. So, that means they’ll likely be switching out every couple of weeks. One Big Brother fan flew a drone over the lot and caught pictures of the BB22 backyard in progress. It appears that the theme might be some kind of 60s or retro one.

Big Brother 22: All-Stars Will Return

Soap Dirt was one of the first to report that this summer would see the return of the All-Star twists. With names like Dan Gheesling and Janelle Pierzina making up just a fraction of the star-studded cast. Some other popular names such as Donny Thompson, Da’Vonne Rogers, and Josh Martinez. Nothing has been confirmed but we’ve been updating the casting leaks as we’ve been getting them.
