Big Brother Canada un-cancelled

Big Brother Canada un-cancelled
Arisa Cox announced BBCAN season six on Twitter.

Big Brother Canada will return next year for season six, reversing Global’s effective cancellation of the season and possibly the show.

The network didn’t announce a renewal in June; instead, it said only that BBCAN was “on hiatus,” though that was indefinite.

Thursday, Global teased an announcement about BBCAN’s future, and then in a video posted to social media, host Arisa Cox attributed the un-cancellation to fan outcry:

“Due to the overwhelming support from you, the best fans in the world, its official: Big Brother Canada returns to Global in 2018 for season six.”

The hashtag used to tease the announcement was #YouCanAndYouWill, an reference to Arisa’s June tweet that said “We CAN and we WILL get through this together!” (Update: And a reference to something Arisa says on the show, I’ve been told.)
