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.
