It has been announced today (26th August) by Channel 4 (UK broadcaster) that the next UK series of Big Brother, Summer 2010 will be the last. It will be axed after the 11th series.
Big Brother is a reality TV show where several people are locked in a house for several months competing for a monetary reward. The UK's 10th season began on June 4th, while the US's 11th season debuted on July 9th. Big Brother is originally a novel by Georges Orwell about crowd controlling, and often cited when freedom is injured, so this trend can have several meanings. (as of
