Just over a week after announcing production was still underway on Big Brother Canada despite the global COVID-19 crisis, producers now say the reality series has ended early.

Global and Insight Productions say production on season 8 is now done in light of developments in Ontario on the fight against the pandemic.

The companies say they have no plans to resume production at a later date for this season, which was scheduled to end May 21.

The final two episodes will air this Wednesday and next Wednesday, April 1. A winner will not be named.

The move to end the show came after Ontario ordered a mandatory closure of all non-essential workplaces in the province starting Tuesday night.
