CBS today announced renewals for two series, including a two-season renewal for one of its summer mainstays, as its 2017 summer season begins to take shape.
“Big Brother” received a renewal for two additional seasons, while the drama series “Zoo” was picked up for a third season.
The renewal for reality fixture “Big Brother” will bring the show to its 19th and 20th editions, which will air in summer 2017 and summer 2018.
“Since it premiered on CBS in the summer of 2000, ‘Big Brother’ has consistently finished among the summer’s top-rated series in young demographics,” the network noted in its announcement. “Summer-to-date, all three weekly broadcasts rank among the top five programs in A18-34, and the top 10 programs in A18-49 and A25-54.”
The current installment of “Big Brother” airs on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.
“Zoo” will air its third season in summer 2017. The current second season of the show, based on the bestseller by James Patterson, is closing in on its two-hour season finale, set for Tuesday, Sept. 6.
Season one of “Zoo” is currently available on Netflix, with season two to become available Sept. 14.
