"The original reality TV phenomenon is back. Scheduled for return in 2023, Big Brother will hit screens after a five year hiatus, and a new set of housemates will take up residence in the iconic house while the country watches their every move."

Why is the clause while the country watches their every move in the simple present tense when it follows two main clauses that refer to the future (will hit... and will take up...)?

Would the clause while the country will watch their every move be grammatically wrong there?

No, it is not wrong. For your question, you may even say " the whole country will be watching their every move.
