After 85 days of competition that saw Xavier Prather become the first black HouseGuest to win the main edition of Big Brother US, CBS announced that Big Brother Season 24 is underway, alongside a third season for its celebrity edition, Celebrity Big Brother 3. The latter premiered on February 2, 2022, following a group of celebrities competing for a $250,000 prize. While it ran, casting for the twenty-fourth season of the main show commenced with Jesse Tannenbaum returning as the casting director a second time.

Casting for the season concluded sometime in June 2022, with Julie Chen Moonves returning as the host, alongside Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan as executive producers. Like previous seasons of the CBS summer reality competition show, Big Brother Season 24 promised viewers to “expect the unexpected.” But to a large extent, fans expected the season to retain the original premise of the show with some twists and turns along the way. Right from its debut in July 2000, the American reality television show has revolved around a group of contestants living together while vying for the grand prize.

Following weeks of speculations, CBS confirmed that Big Brother Season 24 would have a live premiere on July 6, 2022. With the 90-minute live premiere, fans would witness the HouseGuests come together for the first time. And follow them as they move into the Big Brother custom-built house, where they get accustomed to their colleagues and new living conditions. This way, viewers get to follow the dramas that unfold from the get-go, instead of catching up with them at a later time. That had been the case with some recent seasons, which premiered with the HouseGuests already in the house.

Teasing what was to come, show host Moonves reiterated that “the live premiere is going to be 90 minutes with 16 brand new faces. …The challenges that you’re going to see on premiere night are brand new challenges that are crazy,” she added. Pressed for more information, she said: “I think the really big, big, big news is that our first eviction show is going to be like no other eviction show.” Moonves also revealed that the season would be unique. “We have new levels of gameplay and twists that the game is certainly not what you think it is this season more than any other. It’s our 24th season. We have to really switch it up,” she buttressed.
