CBS unveiled its winter schedule on Friday, including the dates set for the debut of “Big Brother” celebrity edition, the return of “The Amazing Race” and “Survivor, and the series premieres of “Living Biblically’ and “Instinct.”

The first celebrity edition of “Big Brother” is coming at viewers on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 8 p.m. The special winter edition will feature multiple episodes per week during a concentrated run, and include the series’ signature Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions and live evictions, as previously announced. Julie Chen is returning as host.

The network is setting up the show, usually a summer series, as counter programming against NBC’s 2018 Winter Olympics.

Before “Big Brother” and “Survivor” land, reality TV fans can get a hit off the 30th season of “The Amazing Race,” which premieres on Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 8 p.m. Special two-hour episodes will air on Wednesday Jan. 24 from 8- 10 p.m. and Feb. 7, Feb. 14 and Feb. 21 from 9-11 p.m.

“Survivor” is headed to Fiji this season with a special two-hour premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. after the conclusions of “Big Brother” and “The Amazing Race.” The show will move over to its regular Wednesday night slot at 8 p.m. on March 7.

CBS will also drop its new series “Living Biblically” and “Instinct” this winter.

“Living Biblically” premieres on Monday, Feb. 26  at 9:30 p.m., after “9JKL” wraps for the season. The show stars Jay R. Ferguson as Chip Curry, a modern-day man at a crossroads in his life who decides to live strictly in accordance with the Bible. As he begins his sincere spiritual journey toward a more moral life with the help of his wife and friends, Chip wonders if he’ll be able to take a page – or every page – out of the Good Book, and if the effect will be of Biblical proportions. Lindsey Kraft, Ian Gomez, David Krumholtz, Tony Rock and Camryn Manheim also star.

“Instinct” will premiere on Sunday, March 11 at 8 p.m. The new drama stars Alan Cumming as Dr. Dylan Reinhart, a gifted author, university professor and former CIA operative who is lured back to his old life by NYPD Detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) to help her stop a serial killer who is using Dylan’s first book as a tutorial. Daniel Ings, Naveen Andrews and Sharon Leal also star.
