Big Brother fans know all too well that they should expect the unexpected, and this fall that will be more true than ever before. According to Deadline, it’s now official that Big Brother will take place in the fall and will air exclusively on CBS All Access, the network’s streaming service that provides the 24/7 live feeds.

Big Brother will apparently last only 10 weeks, about a month shorter than recent seasons that go for almost 100 days. It will have an all new cast and begin shortly after the current season ends on Wednesday, September 21. That definitely suggests that we’ll be getting a smaller cast, probably of 13 HGs, which is how it used to be back in season 12 and before.

The move comes as CBS is investing a lot into its All Access platform, with upcoming scripted dramas like the new Star Trek series and a spin-off of The Good Wife.

Big Brother has always aired in the summer, except for season 9 when a special winter edition aired due to the writers’ strike. Big Brother will be the first fall installment, though it seems the show will most likely continue airing on CBS for the summer.

Are you excited to keep on watching Big Brother into the fall?
