Global has given a sixth-season renewal to Big Brother Canada for 2018 after news of the show going on hiatus enlisted a strong reaction from fans.
The Canadian version of the reality format is produced by Insight Productions in association with Endemol Shine North America.
“In a game-changing twist, beloved series Big Brother Canada will return to Global in 2018, earlier than previously anticipated,” said Barbara Williams, executive VP and COO of 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.”
“Big Brother Canada has the best fans in the world, and we could not be more thrilled and honored to be producing a brand-new season for them,” said John Brunton, executive producer and chairman and CEO of Insight Productions. “Strap on your seatbelts, it’s going to be another wild ride!”
