CBS has renewed summer staple, Big Brother, for another season.

The 14th edition of the Julie Chen-hosted reality series will air next summer. The current season, its most sucessful in seven years, wraps up with a 90-minute finale at 9:30 p.m. following the premiere of Survivor: South Pacific.

The series delivered its largest audience and highest adults 18-49 ratings in seven years with year-to-year increases of 4 percent in viewers, 11 percent in 18-49, 4 percent in 18-34 and 12 percent in 25-54.
