Big Brother renewed for another season shouldn’t surprise anyone. The CBS reality television series beat out nearly every competitor in its time slot this summer and continued to grow its own ratings, beating out all recent numbers.

CBS made the announcement for Big Brother 14 in 2012 just before this summer’s series’s conclusion. CBS’s VP of “Alternative Programming” showered the reality series with praise as she rightfully should have. It looks like Big Brother could be showing up each summer until either host Julie Chen gets bored of covering it or the studio crumbles to the ground. No reason to quit on something this good.

The next season is expected to commence with casting right away. Applications are now being accepted and audition events should be held in late spring of 2012. We anticipate the hour doors swinging open in early July just like they do each season.
