Big Brother‘s brand of unrelenting reality will be around for at least two more seasons, CBS announced Wednesday.
The houseguest-vs.-houseguest competition has been renewed for a 17th and 18th season, to air on the Eye Network in the summer of 2015 and 2016, respectively.
Julie Chen will return as host.
The companion series Big Brother After Dark also has been renewed for next summer; it will air on POP (now called TVGN), which will launch in 2015.
The current season’s 90-minute finale — in which remaining houseguests Derrick, Cody and Victoria vie for a $500,000 prize — will air tonight at 9:30/8:30c on CBS.
