Robyn Kass, the casting director for Big Brother tweeted yesterday that they've now picked the semi-finalists for BB 22. CBS is planning to have a full season of BB and plans to reopen their studios and restart production in June. (If the government allows it.) The start of BB may be delayed a bit, but CBS believes both BB and Love Island will be airing this summer.

if the contestants are quarantined first 2 weeks and then thrown in a house together -

it should be okay since they have no contact with the outside world during filming

 

unless there are people from the outside - 

 

haven't watched since the first few seasons decades ago??

 

networks are grasping for any new kind of programming

The cast will be screened and kept isolated until they're in the house. Once inside and the filming starts they have no outside contact so there's effectively no way they can get exposed. As long as the original sixteen are Covid-19 free to begin with, there's very, very little, to no risk to them.

@gardenman  I had read somewhere that CBS may be starting BB a little later this season since some of the prime time shows might not be ready for the fall season have you heard if that's true or not?

There's nothing official yet. CBS is planning to resume filming in June, and expects to have their fall shows ready on time. If the state of California lets BB start on time it likely will start on time. Much of it is out of the control of CBS though. They're reportedly planning for things to go as normal, but life intervenes. The notification of the semi-finalists is about the same timing as the notifications last year. Everything is on track for a "normal" start time, but who knows what will come? I suspect we'll hear something official in the next two weeks or so.
