CBS is considering ordering a Season 4 of Celebrity Big Brother amid the ongoing writers strike, according to Deadline.

In an article outlining the effects the 2023 writers strike could have on the unscripted community, the industry outlet revealed that CBS was potentially looking to Big Brother as a solution.

“We hear that CBS is also considering adding another Big Brother to its schedule,” reports Deadline. “There’s talk of another celebrity all-stars version of the long-running reality series being considered on top of season 25, which is set to air this summer.”

CBS has aired three seasons of Celebrity Big Brother in recent years: actress Marissa Jaret Winokur won Season 1 back in 2018, singer and reality icon Tamar Braxton took Season 2 in 2019, and professional mixed martial artist Miesha Tate earned the crown during Season 3 which wrapped back in February 2022. The spinoff is hosted by Julie Chen Moonves, the same host as the original U.S. version.

According to the report, CBS has also ordered additional episodes from shows like Secret Celebrity Renovation but it’s really Celebrity Big Brother that die-hard reality fans care about.

The writers strike is a result of an ongoing labour dispute between the Writers Guild of America labour union and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers and began on May 2. It is having an effect on the TV industry at large, with the MTV Movie & TV Awards cancelling their live broadcast as just one example. Additionally, many scripted shows have shut down production meaning TV fans are in for a slowdown at least during the rest of 2023 and possibly into the coming year.
