Will There Be A Big Brother 26 Release Date & Is It Coming Out?


Created by John de Mol and Ron Diesel, Big Brother is an American television reality competition series based on the namesake Dutch reality show. The series derives its name from the authoritative figure in the 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. The premise revolves around a group of contestants or “houseguests” living together in the same mansion for a period of time to ultimately win a $750,000 cash prize (from season 23).

Even though the series had a rough start, it has since become one of the most popular reality shows on American television. Big Brother 25 aired between August 2, 2023, and November 9, 2023. If you are wondering whether there will be a Big Brother 26, you have come to the right place.

Here’s all the Big Brother 26 release date information we know so far, and all the details on when it is coming out.

Is there a Big Brother 26 release date?

Big Brother 26 does not have an official release date, but it will likely be announced in the future.

As of late November 2023, Big Brother hasn’t been renewed for Season 26. This is unlike Season 25, which was greenlit in September 2022 and premiered in August the following year. The Hollywood strikes reportedly had a significant impact on the premiere of the 25th season, and it seems that the same can be said about the renewal of the reality series for Season 26.


Over the years, seasons of Big Brother have mostly come out in June or July. Only two seasons have been in August: 2020 and 2023. The first one was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions. Considering that the announcement for the next season hasn’t been made yet, it can be speculated that Big Brother 26 can come out somewhere between July and September 2024.

Julie Chen Moonves is most likely to serve as the host of Big Brother 26.

Where is Big Brother 26 coming out?

Big Brother 26 could come out on CBS.

This is because all the previous seasons were released on the same network. ComingSoon will provide an update if and when the upcoming season is officially announced.

The official synopsis for Big Brother 26 reads:

“Contestants must compete against each other for a chance to win $500,000 in a house wired with cameras and microphones, capturing their every move for a TV and Internet audience.”
