Big Brother Canada to re­turn for sixth sea­son in 2018

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

The fans have spo­ken and Global TV says Big Brother Canada will be re­turn­ing in 2018. The fate of the series was in doubt af­ter host Arisa Cox said in June that the Cana­dian edi­tion of the re­al­ity fran­chise was go­ing on hia­tus and would not re­turn next year. A tele­vi­sion series go­ing on hia­tus is of­ten the first step to­ward can­cel­la­tion.

But af­ter Cox made her an­nounce­ment, fans launched an on­line pe­ti­tion to try to save the series and flooded Face­book and Twit­ter with posts urg­ing Global re­con­sider its de­ci­sion. Global said in a news re­lease Thurs­day that Big Brother Canada will re­turn “fol­low­ing the over­whelm­ingly pow­er­ful fan re­sponse to its hia­tus.”

Bar­bara Wil­liams, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer of Corus En­ter­tain­ment, said they “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,” she said.
