Produced by Endemol Shine Australia, a local version of Big Brother is set to stage a comeback in the region on Channel 7 after a six-year hiatus.
The return of Big Brother in Australia marks the sixth comeback this year for the mega format, which is now in its 20th year. This latest revival comes on the heels of the announcement at MIPCOM that Big Brother is heading back to Greece. The format has already returned to Poland and Finland this year, while the civilian version will be back in 2020 in Germany, which has hosted several celebrity editions.
Currently, there are 22 productions of Big Brother in 18 markets confirmed for this year.
