Big Brother will air on All-Access this fall, other media now confirms

Big Brother will air on All-Access this fall, other media now confirms

CBS will air a season of Big Brother on its streaming, subscription-based service CBS All Access this fall. It will begin shortly after season 18 concludes on Sept. 21.

This morning, both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter confirmed what I reported one week ago, that a season would air this fall, and also repeated what Vulture’s Joe Adalian’s reporting suggested, that it would be All Access only.

Deadline’s story adds only one detail: that the show “will be produced by the same team that makes the broadcast version and will feature a new cast of houseguests. CBS would not comment.”

While Deadline’s story notes reality blurred‘s reporting (though it mentions it only as if I “spotted” a casting notice), The Hollywood Reporter’s story pretends that it has learned this information independently and has no attribution. (Update: THR just added a sentence of attribution to the end of its story.) Neither story mentions that Vulture was first with confirming my speculation: that this would be an All Access-only season.

CBS All Access costs $5.99 a month, and is available via an app and on Roku, Apple TV, Xbox360, and other streaming devices.
