Will 'Big Brother' Be Canceled? The Show's Fate on CBS Is Uncertain

The future of Big Brother seems unsure, as the show has yet to be renewed for Season 21. Spoiler Twitter account @realvegas4sure noted Sunday that crew members concern as the show nears its summer 2018 end.

"BB has still not yet been renewed for Season 21. After a summer of issues, most all are panicking, a lot," the account tweeted. "[Les Moonves] just resigned and Julie [Chen's] team has not told producers if she would come back even if/when it is renewed, no deal is in place for her on more seasons. Ratings are usually the biggest sign. BB20 is averaging lower than BB19, but holding in the key demo, even with football back. This is a good sign for renewal odds but nothing is certain, there is no guarantee."

According to the account, host Julie Chen has yet to renew her contract with the show. Chen is married to Les Moonves, former CEO of CBS. Moonves left his role at CBS Sunday after a handful of sexual assault harassment against him, according to CNN on Sunday. Chen is also a host on The Talk. She did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.

The show has also been scrutinized this summer for houseguest behavior, from the use of the N-word to sexual assault allegations.

Big Brother fans and former players were quick to express support for the game show and ask their followers to show their support for its renewal, too.

Swaggy C, of this summer's season, noted no matter what alliance members were a part of or fans rooted for, Big Brother is a common thread for all. "We not 'bout to let our show die...No matter if you love or hate Swaggy... love or hate Bayleigh... or love or hate Level 6.....We ALL LOVE BIG BROTHER," he tweeted Sunday.

Kaitlyn Herman also expressed concern for the show's possible departure. "Okay but.... what else would I do 3 nights a week over the summer....????"

Even the very worst case scenario: Julie leaves, CBS drops BB
There is NO chance in hell that Endemol doesn't license it to another network, ZERO chance. NBC, ABC, Fox will pick it up 100%
Just like in the UK when they were dropped by their network, another one picked it up https://t.co/JWnp6KKzP9

Former Big Brother winner Dick Donato noted the show would likely be renewed by another network if CBS decided to drop it from the summer lineup. "Even the very worst case scenario: Julie leaves, CBS drops BB, There is NO chance in hell that Endemol doesn't license it to another network, ZERO chance. NBC, ABC, Fox will pick it up 100%. Just like in the UK when they were dropped by their network, another one picked it up," he tweeted Sunday.

CBS did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.
