When Does 'Big Brother' 2022 Start? Season 24 Air Date Plus More

Long-running favourite Big Brother is returning for another summer season, just months after Miesha Tate was crowned the winner of Celebrity Big Brother 2022.

After 23 seasons (plus three celebrity specials) fans are still enthralled by the reality TV phenomenon.

The concept may seem simple - a group of people live together in a house with their every move being recorded by an array of cameras and microphones - but with weekly eliminations and a grand prize of $750,000 on the line for the winning Houseguest, things are sure to get interesting.

After the premiere, the show will continue to air at its usual schedule of 8/7c on Wednesdays, 9/8c on Thursdays and 8/7c on Sundays.

CBS is yet to reveal when the final of the season will take place, but previous editions have lasted as long as 99 days.

Big Brother 2022 will air on CBS.

A subscription is needed to access Paramount+. You can sign up for the Essential option for $4.99 a month (or $49.99 a year) or the Premium option for $9.99 a month (or $99.99 a year). The Premium option includes your local CBS station.

Who Hosts Big Brother?

Julie Chen Moonves will be returning as host of Big Brother 2022. The 52-year-old presenter has fronted Big Brother since it began in July 2000 and has shared her excitement over the show's return on her Twitter, along with a cryptic message suggesting she may be giving away some clues about the new season.

Fans have speculated that Julie's tweets suggest a beach theme for the new season.

Big Brother begins on CBS at 8/7c on Wednesday, July 6.
