Big Brother 21 spoilers tease that the perennial summer reality TV show will premiere on Tuesday, June 25th. Per usual, the show will start off with a two-night premiere event, with the live feeds beginning Wednesday, June 26th after the show airs on the West coast.

This season’s schedule has the show airing on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays again. The finale date has not been released, but it will most likely be the final week of September.


  • 2-Night Premiere Tuesday & Wednesday, June 25th & 26th @ 8/7c

  • No episode on Thursday, June 27th, July 4th

  • Tuesdays & Wednesdays through July 3rd

  • Wednesdays & Thursdays starting July 10th

  • Sundays @ 8/7c

  • Wednesdays @ 9/8c

  • Thursdays @ 9/8c

  • Season Finale: TBA

We can use all this to extrapolate out that the live feeds will drop at about 10 p.m. BB-Time on June 26th, just in time for Big Brother After Dark to air on Pop along side them.

BB:AD hasn’t been confirmed, but we would assume that it will air again, and on Pop, since BB:AD aired along with the celebrity edition this winter. CBS only owns the Showtime networks (home of BB:AD until it moved) and Pop (formerly TV Guide Network and current BB:AD home), so After Dark is probably staying put on the ‘ol television dial.

The cast bios should come out in the next few of weeks. They usually send them out around 10 days before the season premiere. You can find those and any other BB21 news right here as soon as it gets out.

Press Copy: Big Brother follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 94 HD cameras and more than 113 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000. BIG BROTHER is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America.
