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.

Two more seasons would be great! A Shamy wedding! A nobel prize! Howard's dad and tenure. Yeah!

@edna My thoughts exactly. its getting stale. Constant re-runs on E4 don't help. I'll watch until the end of series 10 and stop

Love it! Need more Shamy and less Bitchy Penny. I prefer when she was nicer...

To the wardrobe department:Please stop dressing Penny in frumpy, shapeless clothing. It's very unappealing.

Woohoo, love the programme, still as great as it was when it first started :D another 2 years, at least, of quality comedy. :) Personally I'm hoping that they keep going strong till they are fed up with the roles.

Why are they doing this? It's been poor for at least the last 4 seasons. Where can they take the character. It's lost the original idea and the characters are not funny any more. Finish it like they did frasier years ago.
