Hot off the heels of its wildest season yet, “Big Brother Canada” will be returning to Canadian airwaves next year, with Global announcing the made-in-Canada reality hit will be back with a sixth season in 2018 following “overwhelmingly powerful fan response.”
“Big Brother Canada” host Arisa Cox broke the news:
“In a game-changing twist, beloved series ‘Big Brother Canada’ will return to Global in 2018, earlier than previously anticipated,” said Barbara Williams, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Corus Entertainment. “With the utmost respect for the loyal following this series has engendered over five terrific seasons, we heard the fans loud and clear. We recognized their passion for this high quality, dynamic, and engaging series, and are thrilled to have ‘Big Brother Canada’ on the Global schedule next year.”
