‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 8, episode 19 preview: When will Kaley Cuoco, cast return?

Big Bang Theory -Tonight, “The Big Bang Theory” is airing an episode that was all about the past, whether it be Howard remembering his late mother, or Sheldon and Leonard remembering a paper that was having a problem or two when it comes to attribution.

So when are you going to see the next new episode come on the air? Well, you are going to be waiting for a while. According to a report from the Futon Critic, the 19th episode of the show is going to air on Thursday, April 2. What is the reason for the long delay? It’s as simple as the fact that the NCAA Tournament is coming up, and that tends to dominate the CBS schedule. Also, this is probably the best time (if there is one, anyway) to put some repeats on the air anyway. There are still six episodes left this season, and you want to have some left for the May sweeps.

Our guess? You’ll have some in early April, another week or two off, and then the show will finish rounding the bases in May. As of right now, though, there is no precise word on what will be coming in those episodes … with one notable exception. It was already reported that Howard is going to be meeting a long-lost half-brother at some point.

Of course, we will have some further news on the rest of the season as soon as the information is made available. You can always count on that!
