Well, they weren’t going to have a Young Sheldon without at least giving the old Sheldon a proper sendoff. The Big Bang Theory is officially confirmed for a whopping forty-eight more episodes with a two-season renewal, but will it be their last?
The Big Bang Theory
The Big Bang Theory is certainly up there in its twilight years, but the TV world will not be bereft of “Bazinga!” for long. Prequel spinoff series Young Sheldon is officially coming to CBS, with none other than Jon Favreau attached to direct.
It’s remained an open question at CBS whether the current tenth season of The Big Bang Theory might prove the last, rounding out contracts of its leads, and potentially launching a spinoff. No longer, it seems as a two-season renewal is likely imminent with fresh pay raises for the core cast.
We’re all fatigued enough to the point that reality and the daily news cycle have begun blending together, so allow Stephen Colbert to sharpen that point. On a pike, specifically, as Colbert throws presidential advisor Stephen Miller onto Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and more to test his “I’m prepared to go on any show” claim.
Considering Game of Thrones began its 2016 run with one of the series’ biggest reveals to date, and closed out the final 10-episode season with a hearty tease for summer 2017, is it any wonder the series continues to dominate the year’s most pirated TV? See what else made the list, including your next HBO obsession, and surprising entry from the comic world.
We may have dodged the bullet on How I Met Your Dad, but The Big Bang Theory may not let us off so easily. Ahead of an (expensive) official renewal for Season 11, CBS is moving forward with a Big Bang Theory prequel spinoff, focused on Sheldon’s early days
Say what you will about The Big Bang Theory; dozens of sci-fi and Hollywood icons have dropped by the series to cater toward its geek-friendly audience. Star Trek icon William Shatner apparently felt it beneath him, however, wanting writers to “find something that’s better” than their original pitch.
Let it never be said that sitcom stars don’t know how to negotiate through the media. Where CBS previously locked down The Big Bang Theory for Seasons 8, 9 and 10 all at once, it remains uncertain if the CBS powerhouse will continue beyond the upcoming year. As for Kaley Cuoco? “It’s a very expensive question.”
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31. Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
Welp, if ever you wanted to overload on TV superheros, have we got a Comic-Con for you! Warner Bros.
