It's Official: New Big Brother Season to Air This Fall on CBS All Access

Big Brother CBS All Access

The Star Trek: Discovery crew and Diane Lockhart now have a cool house to hang out at over on CBS All Access.

UPDATE: CBS is now officially confirming that summertime staple Big Brother will return with Season 19 this fall, and on the CBS All Access subscription streaming service that to date has claimed Bryan Fuller’s new Star Trek series and a Good Wife spinoff as tenants.

CBS’ regular summer editions of Big Brother will remain in tact, the network confirms. Also, Julie Chen will be involved in the digital edition in some capacity, but not necessarily as host.

As previously reported by Deadline (in the wake of a report by the Reality Blurred website), the CBS All Access edition of Big Brother will run shorter (for about 10 weeks), premiere within days of the Season 18 finale (which airs Sept. 21) and feature a new cast of houseguests.

The launch of CBS All Access’ original fare, which was to commence in January with Star Trek: Discovery, will thus be accelerated, with the plan being to premiere a new series every three to four months
