Get Ready: Full Production On ‘Big Brother’ Set To Resume This August — Report

Big Brother All Stars is coming.

TMZ reports that a new season of the CBS reality hit is still in the works despite suffering some setbacks due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the gossip outlet, CBS executives were actually planning on a regular season of the show and had been casting as such as recently as May 2020. However, when the coronavirus pandemic continued to show no signs of slowing, production shifted towards an All Stars cast, which would be easier to put together due to the past contestants’ familiarity with the show.

The cast is apparently set and they were supposed to be flown to Los Angeles at the beginning of July to begin testing and quarantine (Big Brother houseguests are quarantined in a hotel prior to the start of every season) but that timetable has now been pushed to the end of the month, meaning it looks like full production will resume in August.

This is a developing story. More to come…
