Everyone’s favorite summer addiction is almost here!
Season 16 of CBS’ hit summer reality series Big Brother returns next week as a new set of houseguests move into the Big Brother house where they will remain for the majority of this summer (should they be so lucky). We may have to wait one more week before this season kicks off, but thanks to The Hollywood Reporter we now have our first exclusive photos of this year’s house!
Big Brother production designer Scott Storey notes that this season CBS wanted a more “urban, young and playful” design which led to this summer’s urban treehouse theme:
“This year’s theme is urban treehouse. A note from the network was that they wanted it to feel urban, young and playful and urban treehouse seemed like a perfect place to start. We don’t have frilly details. Everything’s a lot more honest.”
Also helping to make season 16 of Big Brother more up-to-date, season 16 will be broadcast fully in HD as Storey notes that the new HD format will give viewers a slew of new viewing angles:
“It has impacted the shots and the amount of coverage we’re getting. Our shots are a lot wider. We can see a lot more. We can shoot from one side to the other side of the house in a single shot and we’ve never been able to do that before.”

Season 16 of Big Brother premieres Wednesday, June 25 at 8/7c on CBS.
