It may have all started with a big bang, but it's far from finished.
CBS announced today that they have renewed The Big Bang Theory for two more seasons, keeping the hit sitcom on the air straight through to 2019. Series stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar have all renewed their contracts trough to Season 12, while Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik are expected to sign as well.
CBS has always expressed confidence that The Big Bang Theory would continue past its current season. "We’ll put it on for as long as everyone wants Big Bang on the air,” said CBS chief Glenn Geller at the 2016 Television Critics Association press tour. "I hope it lasts forever."
News of the two season renewal comes a week after CBS ordered spinoff show Young Sheldon straight to series. That show will revolve around a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper as he lives with his family in East Texas and goes to high school.
Iain Armitage will play the young version of Jim Parsons' Sheldon Cooper, with Zoe Perry taking on the role of his mother, Mary Cooper. Iron Man helmer Jon Favreau is set to direct and executive produce the pilot alongside Jim Parsons, who will also narrate the series as adult Sheldon.
