Even though we are entering the tenth season of “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS this fall, it certainly appears that more could be on the horizon.
Speaking to reporters (per TVLine) while at the TCA Summer Press Tour, network president Glenn Geller made it clear that they have every intention in the world of season 11 coming to fruition:
“We are very confident that everyone involved wants more Big Bang past Year 10 … I know Warner Bros. will make those deals… We’ll put it on for as long as everyone wants Big Bang on the air. I hope it lasts forever.”
At the same time, we know that Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, and the rest of the cast seemingly have an interest in coming back for … and why wouldn’t they? They stand to benefit quite a bit from this financially (many of the stars are among the highest-paid on television), and this show also has one of the cushier schedules given that multi-camera sitcoms operate a little bit differently than your standard single-camera show. They can work on the series, and then have time to pursue other projects during their down time. Actors on other shows don’t always get these same sort of luxuries.
Personally, we’d like to see the series match the 12-year run of “Two and a Half Men,” and it is pretty remarkable that the original cast is all still on board. That’s a clear testament to the quality of the work, and also the rapport that all of them now share from so much time together.
