Toronto, Canada – Get ready Canada – Global’s juggernaut reality show Big Brother Canada returns this spring with its highly anticipated fifth season premiering on Wednesday, March 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Hosted by Arisa Cox, the new season will air on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and on a new night on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global. This season, the Canadian Screen Award nominated series promises to deliver fans even more of what they’ve come to expect from Big Brother Canada – dizzying drama, electrifying challenges, and shocking surprises.

“Coming off a successful fourth season which averaged nearly 1.2 million* viewers per episode, Big Brother Canada returns to Global’s hit primetime schedule with more blockbuster entertainment for our viewers,” said Maria Hale, Senior Vice President, Global Entertainment & Content Acquisition, Corus Entertainment. “We aim to delight and surprise our viewers and Season 5 is no exception. We are truly as excited as our fans to see the action unfold!”

“Season after season, we turn up the volume on Big Brother Canada,” said John Brunton, Chairman & CEO, Insight Production Company Ltd.  “We can’t wait for Canadians to see the outrageous group of houseguests and the special surprise we have in store for them in Season 5.”

In true Big Brother fashion, Global is shaking things up with After the Eviction Live, a weekly Facebook Live chat featuring an extended evicted houseguest interview hosted by Arisa Cox and presented by The Brick. Every Thursday night, following the live eviction episode, fans can join the conversation by heading to the Big Brother Canada Facebook page to ask all their burning questions live.

Airing exclusively on Global, Big Brother Canada plucks a group of hand-picked strangers from their homes, sequesters them from the outside world, and places them inside a house outfitted wall-to-wall with cameras and microphones that capture their every move. Competing for a grand cash prize, each week the houseguests battle in a series of challenges that give them power or punishment, voting each other out until the fate of the final two is decided by a jury of fellow houseguests.

Big Brother Canada premieres Wednesday, March 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and continues to air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global. Viewers who miss the premiere can catch up on Big Brother Canada following the broadcast the next day on GlobalTV.com and Global Go.

Additional details about Big Brother Canada Season 5, including live feeds and this season’s exciting grand prize, will be announced soon. In the meantime, fans can catch up on all the best moments from Season 4 on GlobalTV.com and Global Go. And for everything #BBCAN5, viewers can check out BigBrotherCanada.ca.

Commissioned by Corus Entertainment, Season 5 of Big Brother Canada is produced by Insight Productions in association with Corus Entertainment and Endemol Shine. Executive producers are John Brunton, Barbara Bowlby, Erin Brock, and Sue Brophey.
