If you haven’t been on Twitter or have had no access to the internet in the past couple of weeks, then you may not know the big news!!! Although it was originally reported by Reality Blurred, on August 3rd, CBS officially announced that Big Brother 19 will air this fall on CBS All Access. This will be the 1st all digital version of Big Brother US.
This move to the digital version for season 19 does not mean that Big Brother is officially moving to CBS All Access. CBS confirmed that Big Brother will continue to air on TV during the summers. Since CBS All Access is $5.99/month, which live feeders already pay for, this would mean that everyone who plans to watch BB19 would need to sign up for CBS All Access with that fee. People pay for Netflix and Hulu, so hey, why not go ahead and add CBS All Access to the mix. BB19 is set to premiere shortly after BB18 ends so it’s suspected that it will either start the week immediately after the BB18 finale or sometime in October.
The season will be 10 weeks long, which is shorter than the recent seasons but about the same amount of time as seasons such as BB10. It isn’t confirmed how the episodes will display, such as will they post the episodes at a certain time on certain days and will they be streamed live or will everyone watch at their own convenience. We do know that it will not be an All Stars season since casting is currently open.
Like past seasons, Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan will be the producers for BB19. Julie Chen will be the host as usual. Robyn Kass will not be involved with casting this season, as confirmed by Robyn herself on her Twitter (@Kassting). Think you have what it takes? The casting application is open here.
CBS confirmed that more details will come at a later date.
Looking forward to BB19?? It is especially exciting after seeing how BB18 is going. Let us know your thoughts!
