'Big Bang Theory' Officially Renewed for Two More Seasons
Mar 20, 2017
"The Big Bang Theory" will continue to nerd out through Season 12.
CBS officially renewed the hit comedy for two more seasons, after original cast members Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar signed new contracts extending past the current 10th season. They all reportedly make $1 million per episode.
All parties involved naturally wanted "Big Bang Theory" to continue on. It's a major hit for CBS, and a huge moneymaker for studio Warner Bros. It was just a matter of finalizing the cast's contracts.
The show is also spinning off a prequel, "Young Sheldon," about a teenage version of Parsons' character, which will debut in the fall.
