CBS nearing two-season Big Bang Theory renewal

CBS is close to signing a two-season renewal order for The Big Bang Theory, according to a report by Deadline.com. The Big Bang Theory is coming to the end of a three-season renewal deal signed back in 2014, which took the show through to its current tenth season.

CBS's negotiations with Warner Bros., the studio behind The Big Bang Theory, are taking place as the studio seeks to renew contracts with The Big Bang Theory cast, whose contracts are all up this year. In 2014, the ongoing cast contract negotiations delayed the start of production on the eighth season.

Variety reports that the deal is likely to be for two full seasons of 24 episodes each, taking the show through to its twelfth season in 2018/19. If the show reaches twelve seasons, The Big Bang Theory would be among the longest-running sitcoms on television.

Nice to hear that the show may actually get renewed. All the news i've read said the show might end because of contract negotiations, and some of the actors wanted to move on. Yes there has been some lul's in the writing a few times the past couple of seasons, but I am still watching daily....yes daily... I own ALL the dvd's and rewatch radomly 2-3 episodes before i go to bed each night. Sad..I know. But I do enjoy the show enough to where I don't get burnt out...unlike my poor wife...lol

I'm sorry, but if Raj and Stewart "hook up", I'm all done with the show. I'll just watch the DVD's of past years.

I have watched the show from season 1. The reruns on tbs, local channels & CBS are watched by my 80 year old husband & my 18 year old grandson. Laughing all the time. Please renew the contract & attempt to keep making the story lines relate to current events. Thanks.

I think the writing, while at times predictable, has maintained a surprisingly high level even into the shows 10th season. Big Bang Theory is a staple at our house and we would enjoy 2 more seasons. After seeing this site for the 1st time, and ideas thrown out, I would like to see the elevator repaired before the show is over.

Love it! But have to say, 1 or 2 of this season's episodes have been pretty stale...almost to the point of lame and extremely predictable. The storit's were good, but the writing is slpiping I fear.

Another 2 seasons would be great. The boys should get an award for their guidance system and it's about time Penny had twins.

Please don't let the show end. I have never missed an episode since the very first one. I watch this show with my grandchildren, not many shows appropriate to watch with children.

Love, love, love the program. Would like to see "Shammy" getting married! Leonard and Penny need something more feesh. They are getting stale. Love Walowitz and Bernadette with the "baby" geeat idea on the hoarse sounding cry of the "baby". And for Raj and Stewart to finally "hook-up" in a brommance/homesexual relationship.
