Celebrity Big Brother Season 2 will be coming to CBS next winter. The success of the first season has led to an early renewal from the network.

The Celebrity Big Brother 2 news was revealed early Saturday morning (May 12) in a report by Deadline. This is a huge piece of information from CBS, again showing how well-received the first season was received.

Originally, Celebrity Big Brother appeared to just be a stunt show. It was designed to take viewers away from NBC, where the 2018 Winter Olympics were being shown. Instead, it turned into a ratings winner for CBS. Now, it appears that enough interest was there to pre-order a second season. It was Marissa Jaret Winokur who won the first season, bringing an unexpected end to the first installment for some fans.

When will Celebrity Big Brother 2 debut?

Though this is considered breaking news in regard to the early renewal, the news comes to an end with these rumors. There are no rumors about when it will premiere or whether it will be part of the regular schedule for CBS. The assumption is that it will debut in the winter months again. That gives a lot of time for the CBB rumors to build up.

Next up is Big Brother 20 during the summer

There has been a lot of recent news about the reality competition show. On the CBS schedule, first up is Big Brother 20, which will debut during summer 2018. As previously reported by Inside the BB House, it will then be followed by a season of The Amazing Race. The new Amazing Race cast will consist of only former Big Brother houseguests. That should be a huge draw for CBS viewers.

Though there is also no premiere date revealed for the BB20 cast, the online buzz is growing. The introduction of news about CBB2 is only going to add to it. This all goes back to the recent success that the show has had with viewers residing in the key demographics. If younger viewers continue to tune in, this is a show that could be around for years to come. Will the CBB2 and BB20 casts turn into winners for CBS? Tune in to find out.
