Big Brother 17 Start Date, Finale, & Schedule Announced – Update: Final Episodes Schedule

CBS has announced the Big Brother 17 start date for June 2015 with the schedule confirmed to return for three nights a week. Now we just need some BB17 cast Houseguests to get this party started!

Update: NFL will be impacting the final weeks of Big Brother in September. Read when the last episodes of BB17 will be airing.

Big Brother 17 returns on June 24-25, 2015 with a two-night season premiere on CBS. This announcement came two weeks earlier than last year’s confirmation from CBS and marks an early start date like the former season’s debut. They’re as anxious to get it started as we are!

Casting Director Robyn Kass added on Twitter that the series would be back on its new regular schedule of Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. I guess I’ll have to keep holding out hope for that long ago Su/Tu/Th schedule for Big Brother. Ah well, maybe for Big Brother 18.

Big Brother After Dark returns to TVGN which is now called “Pop.” BBAD begins on June 25, 2015 and should air each night of the week with varying schedule times. We’ll keep an eye out for their times this season.

We’re looking at a very long season as well again this summer with the Big Brother 17 finale anticipated for September 23, 2015. CBS released their fall debut schedule and Survivor 2015 has a 90-min season premiere on the 23rd which leads us to believe we’ll see the traditional pairing of Big Brother’s finale and Survivor’s premiere. This would give us another 97-day season like last year.

Get your Live Feeds ready with the preseason price of $5.99/month and check out the early bird content starting this week. You’ll be ready to watch the in-house cameras on premiere night!

  1. This will be all newbies, next season…if they get there, BB18 will be All-Stars again

    • again? its cbs’ #1 summer show and cheap to produce. im sure it will be back.

    • Julie Chen is married to the president of CBS. I’m pretty sure it will be on until Julie is tired of doing it.

    • They renewed the show for 2 seasons after last year’s season, so it will defiantly be back. There is a rumor that returning players will be on this season, but I highly doubt that will happen. If it does then that would be great because I’m kind of getting sick of the newbie seasons… especially on Survivor.

    • I am sure that Frankie, Zach, Derrick and others will make some sort of an appearance, and possibly other fan favorites from previous season. We saw Rachel, Dan, Ian and others participate in various ways in the past.

  2. more time for more guests, more challenges….more deceitfulness???? muhahahahahah

  3. I am looking forward to this season. Cannot get enough, we need to have one after every survivor, then television would be worth watching.

  4. It’s already been renewed for an 18th Season, it was renewed for Seasons 17 and 18 back in fall 2014

  5. Hey hey look who’s back to share another year of comments with my favourite community! Looking forward to seeing old familiar faces and some new ones… :)

  6. As much as i love all newbie seasons, I think it’s time they bring back returning players because most of the recent all newbie seasons have only had 3 or 4 good players with the rest of the cast being bad gameplayers or complete duds, for instance BB 16 had One really amazing player and 2 ppl who were really good tv but not great gameplayers in Zach and Devin.. Season 15 didn’t really have any good players besides andy and one person who made decent tv in Amanda, Season 12 had The brigade and then everyone else was terrible… I think they should do a mixed season but not the BB 13 format, I think they should do the Coaches format again, I personally really liked that season and I think it had the greatest final 2 in BB history with the best two players in the final 2 with both Ian and Dan. best of all it proved that newbies could beat veterans,even though it was a bitter jury i still think Ian deserved to win because jury management is a HUGE part of the game

  7. Guessing that since the finale date has been announced, all the finalists are now in hotels and locked down. I can’t remember a recent season where the house guests actually knew the end date. Remember last season Derek was sure the finale would be on a Sunday night.

  8. So I am assuming that they will also do a returning player like the way Judd and Nicole came back. If there are 16 houseguets this season there will be a returning player to fit the schedule. 17 or 18 houseguests will fit the 97 day schedule perfectly, but I don’t see them doing that.

  9. Ok I am confused it says This should be on Now, at this time and instead Arrow is on? What am I missing?

  10. Why does anyone with a brain watch this garbage? Oh wait, I answered my own question. No one with an ounce of brain, or any taste whatsoever watches this sht.

    • Trust me, there are a lot of very humorous, intelligent people who are BB fans. Get to know us better and you’ll change your mind. It’s like an experiment in human foibles, weaknesses and strengths, along with a good dose of narcissism, delusion and cunning. Fascinating!

  11. Newbie question here: Via Twitter and Facebook, Vanessa was seen going through someone’s things in the HN room & put something in her pocket. Today Liz is pissed someone went through her things and she dumped Meg’s bag and mucked up her things. I guess Julia was involved too. (Liz admitted she didn’t know if it was Meg or not that went through her things.) So my question is this:

    Is bullying and damaging other people’s property ok as long as it’s not BB’s things? Shouldn’t those twins be kicked off the show now because of this? I strongly feel like Meg’s safety with those twins in there, is at risk!!

    ps New at posting too so not sure if it went through or not, sorry if repeat but I really want to know!
