The second season of Celebrity Big Brother will premiere on Monday, January 21 with a two-hour season premiere as host Julie Chen Moonves returns to welcome the next batch of celebs into the Big Brother house.
Like the first season, the show will air multiple nights a week until the show’s two-hour season finale on Wednesday, February 13th.
New episodes of “Celebrity Big Brother” will air every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
Chen Moonves took to Twitter to publicize the news:

Celebrity Big Brother began in the U.K., and only just made its way to America last year.
WHO WILL BE THE HOUSEGUESTS?
The first season of the show was won by Hairspray star Marissa Jaret Winokur as she beat out TV host Ross Mathews to take home the $250,000 prize.
There is growing speculation about who will make the cut for the second season after Chen Moonves gave her own recommendations for celebrities to cast for the next season.
She named rocker Tommy Lee, her former The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne, and controversial Olympian Tonya Harding.
The two-time Olympian makes a lot of sense for the show.
She made it to the “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” finale earlier this year, and always generates her share of controversy.
Filmmaker and actor Mike White, who wrote and starred in movies and TV shows like Chuck & Buck, School of Rock, and Enlightened, could be the first person to complete the CBS reality TV trifecta.
White is on the current season of Survivor, David vs Goliath.
With his father Mel at his side, Mike appeared in TWO separate seasons of The Amazing Race, the second of which was an all-star season filled with fan favorites.
If cast on Celebrity Big Brother (are you a celebrity for being on reality shows?) he would become the first person to appear on all of CBS’s franchise reality programs.
Chen Moonves returns as host amid allegations of sexual misconduct by her husband Les Moonves.
Chen Moonves, 48, resigned as co-host of The Talk back in September.
She remains employed at CBS, and will host the celebrity edition, although Big Brother hasn’t been renewed officially by CBS for a 21st season.
There is also growing speculation that Celebrity Big Brother may be her last show at the network.
