Big Bang Theory: CBS confident it will continue past season 10
With The Big Bang Theory heading into its 10th season — and contract negotiations for the cast looming — the big question is whether the juggernaut comedy will be back for more.
“We are very confident that everyone involved wants more Big Bang past year 10,” CBS chief Glenn Geller told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Wednesday. “I know Warner Bros will make those deals.”
Geller declined to offer any details on when we might hear an announcement on Big Bang Theory‘s renewal, but later added, “We’ll put it on for as long as everyone wants Big Bang on the air. I hope it lasts forever.”
For his part, executive producer Steve Molaro told EW he wasn’t looking at season 10 as the show’s last, but he does have an idea on how the show could end. “I have personal thoughts that have been floating around in my head, but we haven’t really talked about it,” he said after the season 9 finale. “It always seems like this thing that’s off in the distance forever. Until it becomes closer to a reality, I’m not going to think about it all that much, because it makes me sad.”
The Big Bang Theory returns Monday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
