Things will kick off live at 9 p.m. ET (and air delayed on the west coast) with a two-hour move-in "premiere event" before settling into its usual three-night-a-week schedule: Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. The list of all-stars includes "winners, finalists, legends, memorable personalities, and some of the best to never win the game", though you'll have to wait to find out exactly who those all-stars are.
The production is said to be following specific health and safety protocols for COVID-19 with the welfare of everyone involved as the highest priority.
Ahead of the premiere, BB22 houseguests will be placed in quarantine and tested several times prior to entering the house.
Staff and crew members will also be tested on a regular basis. For the first time, the show will be hiring a COVID-19 compliance officer to monitor and enforce all health and safety protocols. On screen, the biggest notable difference will be Thursday's live show, which will forgo a studio audience. In addition, season 21 of BIG BROTHER saw double-digit growth over the previous season in full episode streams across CBS digital platforms. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000.
The show is produced by Fly on the Wall Entertainment and Endemol Shine North America with Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan as exec producers.
