Big Brother US begins its landmark 20th season when the show returns for its annual summer timeslot later this year. Due to the fact of a 20th anniversary, many fans have speculated that the summer run will be another All-Stars version of the show.
Well, now those rumors have officially been put to rest by the showrunner herself.
Executive Producer Allison Grodner has confirmed that Big Brother 20 will feature a brand new cast and said the show has no plans to bring back an All-Stars season anytime soon.
Speaking to Gold Derby, Grodner said there will be several things that will make Big Brother 20 special. But returning faces will not be one of them.
“It’s going to be a big season,” she said. “We have a lot planned for this season. I think there are certain expectations from our fans that it’ll be an All-Stars season and all of that and I think we’ve pretty much put that to rest. This will be a brand new cast.”
Fans let their voices be heard after Paul Abrahamian was brought back two straight seasons to play the game, getting second place two years in a row as he lost in a 4-3 vote.
One other thing that has been annoying fans both in the U.S. and abroad is the lack of a change to the house design. Well, it sounds like there will be more than a change of wallpaper to the house for its 20th season.
We are really excited about completely revamping this house,” Grodner said. “Wait till you see it. It’s a whole new thing. It’s spectacular. We are really excited about some new an innovative twists that will help commemorate this twentieth season.”
Big Brother 20 returns to CBS later this summer.
