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 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 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
Whether or not The Big Bang Theory comes to an end after its next season, few would argue that the egghead comedy kept alive many a three-camera sitcom tradition, aided by memorable moments the likes of Sheldon’s “Soft Kitty” lullaby. The memorably kitty-ditty has been featured no less than seven times over nine seasons, but has now come under fire with a lawsuit over its inception.
Will Ferrell's 'Elf' has long become a Christmas classic in its own right, but while NBC busies itself with live-action musicals of 'Peter Pan,' Buddy will have his own song to sing with a brand-new animated musical special 'Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas.' 'The Big Bang Theory''s Jim Parsons will lend his voice to the title role, but who else will be heard when NBC sings loud for all the world to hear?
Well, no major changing of the guard here, as actor Jim Parsons tonight takes home the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series award at the 2014 Emmy Awards for his role as brilliant 'Big Bang Theory' egghead Sheldon Cooper.
Love it or hate it, there's no denying that CBS' 'The Big Bang Theory' has become one of the more successful sitcoms in recent memory, achieving a 'Friends' and 'Seinfeld'-like popularity that assures its stars will band together for big paydays in the future. And while recent contract negotiations with Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki held up production on season 8, reports suggest the trio have succeeded in negotiating a major raise. Get that sitcom money, nerds!
