For its second season, “Big Brother Canada” is starting a few days later than it did the first time around. If you remember season 1 of Slice’s pretty awesome adaptation of the franchise launched on February 27, and in a new video posted to the show’s Instagram page this week, the date was officially unveiled to be at some point in March. This may not be that much later, though, than it first seems, given that we could just be talking about a few days’ difference between the start of last season and this one.
It’s a smart move to separate the show from the February sweeps, mostly since you’re giving yourself an opportunity to start with as big of an audience as possible. But with that being said, let’s hope for a start date in very early March, given that you want at least a couple of weeks to breathe between one version of the show and the next, especially if “Big Brother 16” starts in America in mid-to-late June like it did this past summer.
But based on what we know already, “Big Brother Canada” is going to be well worth the wait this year. In one of our recent (and exclusive) interviews with the show’s executive producers earlier this fall, we learned that there are plans to introduce a completely new twist to the show that has been never done before in any other format, and something that will change the game from the very beginning. The casting calls for the show are already complete, and now the process is underway to determine from this group who are the best contestants to actually put in a crazy house together.
We still have some more goodies to share over the course of this holiday season, so be sure to stay tuned for some more scoop on that. Also, we’ll be bringing you the same coverage for the new season as in the past, including live feed updates, reviews, and much more, when March 2014 rolls around. It’s going to be a fun season!
