Hope not.

CBS have used that trick more than enough now I think.

New players only for me. Would love to see another all stars in a couple of years but not keen on vet/newbie mixed.

No returnee's and newbie mix for a thrid year for me. The only idea I could be persuaded round too accepting is bringing back say 4 wildcard houseguests, contestants who left their series early in the first or second week such as Jodi from this year or Keith/Cassi /Dominic from last year, Brian from BB 10 etc

I would prefer an all new HG season.

The only exception being if they could persuade Will to play once more.....then I'd like All Stars 2

Definitely just new players only! 3 seasons in a row would be too much.

2 more seasons, then a proper All Stars series will be needed I think. No returnees until then. Apart from the obvious Jessie appearance, which must happen every series!!!

I'm not sure we'll even get three more seasons

Hoping for a newbie Season for BB15 and then All Star 2 in 2014.

I think viewing figures are in decline, starting this season.

All Stars 2 would be good if there was a Chill Town trio: Will, Mike and Frank.

They should either commit to a proper All-Stars season or not bring anyone back at all.
Mixing old and new just doesn't really work well in shows like these.
I'm tired of the returnees hogging the spotlight and sucking the life out of the season with their over-bearing edits. The newbies are always treated like dirt, even if they reach the end, they are still neglected by the edit and the attention in regards to the final result is always about the returning players and why they did or didn't win or lose.

It's a clear sign that the show's best days are behind it when the producers can hardly be bothered to create new stars anymore, and instead feel the need to promote their previous stars for some reason.
BB14 wasn't actually too bad with the likes of Ian and Frank, but new characters like this are only once in a blue moon in seasons with returning players vs newbies.

But everythings ratings decreased this year for one reason ir another. It was still winning most of its slots wasnt it? I think next year will be more telling.

And judging by the backyard interviews the new Renegades: Jeff and Dan.

I hope they get new players, and new players that aren't just all about the looks (Kara) or character type (Cap A Shane). It's not like BBUK, the US version makes no illusions that it is a game and they should put together a cast, while diverse, that is equipped to play. Some of the HG's this year were a complete waste to the game and they didn't even make good TV.

I am in turmoil thinking about this because thinking about the last two seasons, BB14 without Dan, Britney, Boogie and Janelle, and BB13 without Brenchal, Jeff, Jordan, Dick and Danielle is kind of unimaginable. Without these characters I don't think either series would have been as good. And when you look at BB12 which was the last series without any returning players it was a really bad series.

In saying that BB13 was too unbalanced as there were too many vets around to run things, without Danielle around to start a war it would have been very dull watching all the newbies get picked off one by one. BB14 worked a bit better since the vets were forced to work alongside the newbies. If they are bringing people back I think it should be no more than 4 players or all newbies. It's probably too soon for another Allstars.

Agreed with the general consensus that all-new players next season, then all-stars 2 to follow. I like the idea of players who exited early getting a second chance though. Who knows, Jodi or Kara could have been great if they'd had more time.

I liked Kara, Cassi or Dominic from BB13 could be good. Possibly Brian BB10, Annie BB12 or even *gulp* Laura BB11.

The returning players novelty wore off long ago. It's boring now.

I voted no, I'd like to see newbies in the next season, and furthermore, complete strangers.

If there are returning players I'd like it to be an Allstars season, or a "second chance" season as some other posters have said.

No returning players, fed up with it now. It is happening too much on Survivor, I mean since season 20 they have only had two seasons of newbies. The only person I would want to return is Angie and Memphis from BB10 and Dom from BB13. The rest of houseguests we had in previous year have been terrible. I dont want people who have played twice all ready to play again as well, oh and no Frank from the previous season, but seeing as CBS loved him he will be back Better be a early boot
