Will we get to see more of this reality game show as a part of the wider Big Brother franchise? Continue reading to learn more about Big Brother Canada Season 12.
Is Big Brother Canada coming back for another season? As we know, after being on air for so many seasons and different versions around the world, Big Brother has become one of the most popular and talked-about reality shows of all time!
The show has grown in popularity, and since its debut, and has consistently gathered amazing viewership and ratings, which is encouraging for the network to renew the show for an additional season. As the demand doesn’t seem to stop anytime soon. Moreover, the Canadian version of this reality series juggernaut has recently concluded its 11th season.
This has led to much speculation among viewers about whether the show will get an early renewal for a 12th season or not. So, if you’re wondering the same thing, then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything we know about the current status of Big Brother Canada Season 12.
Is Big Brother Canada renewed for Season 12?
As of writing this, we can confirm to the readers that the network has yet to formally announce the 12th season of Big Brother Canada. The winner of the 11th season, Terrell “Ty” McDonald, was announced a few hours ago, with runner-up Claudia Campbell, which makes it impossible for the network to announce another season without relishing in the success and evaluating the viewership of the last one. We understand your anticipation of knowing what’s next in this popular show.
But for now, you should know that the network may assess its performance and reception before renewing the series for future seasons, and it takes some time. Moreover, there is a slight chance that the 11th season might end up being the final one, as without the feeds, the show lost more than half the viewers, which isn’t great considering the network also wants to maintain the same ratings, which does put the future of this franchise at stake.
We’ll just have to see if the network agrees with the fans to bring them back. So, interest and demand for the show can be reignited to bring the hype back as the previous season did! So, for the time being, any confirmation about a potential 12th-season renewal seems far too soon. In the meantime, fans should wait for the network to acknowledge the future plans for this Big Brother adaptation in order to compete and instill their position as one of the top-tier reality television shows.

Big Brother Canada Season 12 Expected Release Date and Time Slot
The prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, and the status is neither here nor there. But if the show is renewed in a couple of weeks, just like the prior seasons, then we can predict that the potential release date for Big Brother Canada Season 12 might happen sometime around early 2024, as the prior seasons also had a similar one-year gap in order to get the cast approved, set designs confirmed with a theme, and the cash prize!
On the other hand, the episodes are expected to premiere on the same schedule, which is every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on Global TV. In order to receive updates on when Big Brother Canada Season 12 is renewed and scheduled to premiere on the network, interested viewers can enable notifications to get updates. Until then, fans should keep a close eye on the social media handles of the show to learn about any new updates.
Furthermore, the confirmed contestants for the upcoming season have not yet been released. But we are certain that they will be announced as soon as the renewal is granted and feature a diverse cast of houseguests who will bring their unique personalities and backgrounds to the game. From the lovable underdog to the conniving mastermind, each player will fight tooth and nail to stay in the competition and win the grand prize as a part of the show’s legacy and be titled as the winner!
Big Brother Canada Season 12: What is the show about?
If renewed, the new season will follow the same basic concept which was first introduced by the American version of the program, in which a group of contestants—known as “HouseGuests”—share a specially built home that is cut off from the outside world while they compete for a $100,000 cash prize and other prizes provided by the program’s sponsors. Live television cameras and individual audio microphones are constantly watching the guests while they are staying there.
The show’s website offers free access to a live feed into the house for viewers. Big Brother Canada is the first iteration of the series to employ the American format, which is very different from earlier versions. Through the addition of “twists” to the game, the rules of the series have also changed over the course of each season. To get more updates about the show, readers can also check out the official website of Big Brother Canada, which gives all the new updates in one place.
Big Brother Canada Season 12 Episodes and Streaming Options

We would like to highlight that the number of episodes may vary depending on the theme and demand of the viewers, whether they want a supersized season or not.
Until then, we request the viewers to be patient and stream the prior seasons to understand the concept if they haven’t already.
