Big Brother 22 production has hit a bit of a snag with the COVID-19 pandemic once again. It’s going to delay the premiere of BB22 by at least a couple of weeks according to our sources close to CBS. Yet, it’s still going to be an All-Star season filled with returning faces. Plus, promotional footage should be coming sometime this week. So, when should you expect to sit down for the premiere of BB22?
Big Brother 22: COVID-19 Spikes in California – BB22 Delayed?
It’s unfortunate news for Big Brother fans patiently waiting for the 22nd season of the CBS summer reality hit series. COVID-19 cases have spiked in California. That’s going to affect the schedule of BB22.
So, we’re going to have to wait a little longer for the All-Star cast we’ve been waiting years for. Yet, don’t get too upset because our sources say that Big Brother 22 isn’t canceled, it’s just delayed. That’s right, CBS plans to roll out the show – although not at it’s typical beginning of summer schedule – despite the ongoing coronavirus concerns.
Sequester to Start Later in July
Originally, the group of All-Star players for Big Brother 22 was supposed to be in sequester already. Then, they would remain in isolation for at least two weeks. That’s in order to make sure they didn’t have the virus. After that, they’d enter the house and the show would premiere a couple of days later in mid-to-late July.
It looks like CBS had planned on flying them out at the beginning of the month. But COVID-19 has changed those plans. Now our source is telling us that they hope to have the cast in sequester by the end of the month. If things go according to plan, then Big Brother should return on August 5 at the earliest.

Big Brother 22: Promos Coming Soon
We’ve been waiting with bated breath for the first glimpse of anything BB22 related from CBS. Yet, the company has kept rather quiet about the topic and it looks like we’ll have to wait a little bit longer. According to our source, CBS will be releasing some promotional content in the next week or so. Hopefully, it’ll be sooner rather than later in order to keep hope within the fandom alive.
