Big Brother Renewed by Poland’s TVN


Endemol Shine Group’s Big Brother has been renewed by TVN in Poland on the heels of the reality format’s recent comeback following a ten-year break.

In March, Endemol Shine Poland brought the format back to its original broadcaster TVN, where it had a successful 13-week run. The finale of Big Brother Poland, which aired on June 10, was watched by 1.15 million viewers. The show was also the most engaging format in the history of Polish social media, with 58,000 likes on Facebook and 140,000 followers on Instagram. TVN will air the new season of Big Brother Poland in September.

Ryszard Sibilski, managing director of Endemol Shine Poland, said: “We are proud that Big Brother’s return to Poland was so popular that TVN has immediately ordered a new season. The existing house location unlocked newfound creative potential and our production team can’t wait to get back on set. The fact that we’ll be on air before the end of the year is a testament to TVN’s confidence that this format will continue to deliver fantastic audiences for both online and linear.”

Lisa Perrin, CEO of Creative Networks, added: “Big Brother is the original reality format, and with the 20th anniversary approaching, it feels like there is huge momentum with multiple renewals and comebacks making it one of the best years yet. The team in Poland produced a dynamic, entertaining series and it’s no surprise that TVN has renewed the show after such impressive ratings with the key younger audience.”
