BIG BROTHER’ SEASON 22 BUSTING OUT THE ALL-STARS THIS SUMMER … Filming Despite Coronavirus
Big Brother” is coming back this summer with an All-Star cast for Season 22 … coronavirus pandemic be damned.
Every year, “Big Brother” shoots during the summer, but due to COVID-19, there was lots of speculation ‘BB’ would be another casualty of the virus … but we’ve learned the reality show is still ON.
Production sources tell TMZ … “Big Brother” was in the middle of casting for its next season when the coronavirus outbreak hit. We’re told casting was completely shut down in May, leaving execs to change the format to an All-Star edition instead.
Our sources say an All-Star cast made the most sense, because those contestants are already familiar with the show and have already been vetted by network execs … plus it would have been difficult to cast fresh faces for a new season in the middle of a pandemic, a process we’re told would have dragged on for weeks.
