Big BrotherThe digital edition of "Big Brother" is coming soon, and CBS Interactive has finally revealed its name and premiere date.

Fittingly, the original series is called "Big Brother: Over the Top," a title the refers both to the level of drama we can anticipate (fingers crossed!) and the fact that it is delivered to viewers online. The show will only be available for viewing on CBS All Access, the network's streaming service.

As for its premiere date, "Big Brother: Over the Top" will begin streaming on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10 p.m. ET. Fans of the franchise will get an all-new cast of Houseguests, who will move into the "Big Brother" house for a 10-week season that will be full of scheming, conflict, and evictions. This time around, we can look forward to the introduction of new ways to interact with the crazy competition.

"With the unique streaming format, not only will viewers get to see everything play out live, including ceremonies and competitions, but the audience will also participate in the show like never before," said Executive Producer Allison Grdoner in a statement. "Each week will offer unprecedented interactive opportunities that will have an immediate impact on the game."

The shake-up will be exciting, but we'll be happy to see at least one familiar element when we tune in to watch the Houseguests fight to stay in the house: Julie Chen is returning as host.
