Ever since Big Brother premiered in 2000, it has never failed to surprise its viewers. Its latest season, Big Brother Season 24, premiered in July 2022 and aired its finale on September 25th, 2022. With the 24th season already rooted in the past, we are looking forward to landmark season 25 of the CBS television reality series.
This means bringing another cohort of houseguests, hailing from radically different cultural and professional backgrounds, who would be left with no choice but to face the extreme challenges within close quarters. Consequently, their existence would be reduced to a Darwinian mode of survival, planning and plotting against each other to win the title. It’s the game of yeet or be yeeted!
Produced by Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment in association with Endemol Shine North America, Big Brother “follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 94 HD cameras and 113 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $750,000.” (via CBS)
With that said, here’s everything you need to know about Big Brother season 25.
When was Big Brother officially renewed for season 25?
Just after the finale episode of BB 24 was aired, CBS officially renewed the addictive series for a 25th season. The announcement immediately followed the conclusion of season 24.
The series host, Julie Chen-Moonves posted a message on Twitter, saying, “A big thank you to all our house guests for an absolutely incredible summer.” She added, “I know. I’m going to miss watching the show too, but I’ve got a great plan. This fall, spend some time watching other CBS competition shows. We’ve got ‘Survivor,’ we’ve got ‘The Amazing Race,’ and now we’ve got ‘The Real Love Boat.’ That’ll get you prepped for next summer. That’s right! We are coming back for our 25th season of the show.”

The 24th season concluded with the three remaining house guests, including Taylor Hate, Monte Taylor, and Matthew Turner, participating in their last Head of Household competitions to make the win. CBS contends that Big Brother season 24 has amassed over 11.5 billion minutes across its platform, Paramount +, and the CBS app. Not only that but according to Variety, “Big Brother’s” three weekly broadcasts over the summer were among the top 10 programs of the season in both total viewers and in the adults 25-54 demographic.”
That being said, we express no wonder why the series was renewed for a 25th season!
What is the release date of Big Brother Season 25?
At the time of writing this article, the official social media handles of the series and the network have not revealed the release date of BB 25 which has resulted in much speculation and debates regarding the same, including its production and post-production processes. However, we do ascertain that Big Brother 25’s premiere date will be announced in 2023, as mentioned by the series host, Julie Chen on Twitter.
Considering the schedule that the series has maintained for nearly all of its season, we expect season 25 to kickstart in late June/early July 2023. Be that as it may, since the official announcement has not been made, you can take this information with a pinch of salt. We also advise the fans to be more patient and wait for the official news release as we might be nearing it soon.

Taylor Hate was the winner of BB 24 and has “one of the best comeback stories in the history of the show” (via ScreenRant), Taylor recently shared her best advice for people interested in applying for BB season 25. Finding a few crumbs of time amidst her hustling schedule, Taylor shared an Instagram reel revealing the secret to cracking BB interviews, a few days prior to the return of Big Brother in-person casting calls.

The Big Brother season 24 winner walked away with the $750k cash prize and is now keeping herself busy on a cruise that she won as a part of her grand prize. Taylor has continued her romantic relationship with one of her fellow houseguests Joseph Abdin outside the house. Aside from travelling on a cruise with her boyfriend, Taylor has also grown her social media presence, owing to her exponential demand in the market, as more and more companies want to work with her.
Will Big Brother Season 25 have old houseguests?
Amidst the casting, rumours regarding Big Brother including past houseguests have skyrocketed. Considering that it’s a milestone season for the show, the rumours might have a ring of truism surrounding it. ScreenRant contends, “Since casting is in full force for brand-new players, the season may consist of some returnees, as well as some brand-new players. Perhaps this is dependent upon how well the casting process goes. In addition to this, the number of past players who would be willing to play again may also play a role in this decision.”
Be that as it may, these are just rumours, so you can absorb them with a grain of salt.
