LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - "Big Brother," the long-running CBS reality series, will be back for a 15th season, the network said Wednesday.
The series has received an early pickup for a Summer 2013 season.
The current season of the series, which premiered in 2000, wraps up with a 90-minute finale Wednesday.
The pickup isn't particularly surprising. A reliable ratings-grabber for CBS, "Big Brother" has averaged 6.8 million total viewers, with a 2.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic that's most important to advertisers.
