Summer is almost here and for TV fans, that only means one thing: the return of Big Brother! Yes, CBS is rolling out Big Brother 18 in June and now we know when we can expect to meet the new crop of houseguests who will surrender their entire summers for a chance to win half a million dollars.

The cast of Big Brother 18 will be revealed Monday, June 13, nine days before the season begins airing on CBS. Like last year, the reveal will occur on the live feeds as Jeff Schroeder will sit down with the cast and interview them briefly one at a time so fans can get to know the new HGs.

Also like last year, the Big Brother 18 live feeds will be available through CBS All Access, the network’s online platform, for $5.99 per month. That covers the 24/7 live feeds as well as a library of every past episode of the show and other CBS programs you can watch any time.

Big Brother 18 will launch with a two-hour premiere Wednesday, June 22 at 8pm on CBS. The Thursday episodes begin June 23 at 9pm, after which the live feeds will officially begin at 10pm PT/1am ET. Additional episodes air Sundays at 8pm and Wednesday episodes will trim down to one hour at 8pm on June 29.

So enjoy the first two weeks of June, because starting on June 13, your lives (or at least mine) belong to Big Brother 18.
