With Season 11 of The Big Bang Theory just wrapping up, what should we expect for the future? It seems that the show will continue after Season 12, even though there were rumors that it would have been the shows last season.
Earlier this year, Johnny Galecki-who portrays Leonard- stated that the cast of the hit show is ‘very comfortable’ with bringing the show to a close in the next year or so.
“The only manner in which the cast has discussed wrapping [the show] has been that we’re all going to be very sad when that day comes,” he said in January. “But I think at this point everyone’s very comfortable with 12 seasons being a good time to go home and see our families.”
Last week, showrunner Steve Holland also said that the show will end in 2019. “Until I hear differently, yes,” he said. “I know we have next season, but I don’t know what happens beyond that.”
CBS’ entertainment president Kelly Kahl also has been saying that it might not just end yet.
“We are hopeful there will be more,” Kahl told reporters (according to Digital Spy). “We would certainly hope to get a few more years out of it.”
Deadline reports that she added: “As long as Chuck [Lorre, co-creator] and his team have stories to tell, we will take the show for as long as they want to go.
“We can take a few more seasons.”
Last week we got the long-awaited finale to Season 11 of the Big Bang Theory.
Back in 2016, there were lots of rumors circulating that the 10th season of the show would be its last, but luckily the show was renewed for two more years.
“Why would everyone walk away from something that’s so good?” Kunal Nayer said of the rumors. “No-one would. Not the studio, not the actors, not anyone. We’d all be foolish.
“But it is the industry and unless pen is on paper and you’re signed, sealed, delivered, anything can happen. There was never real doubt in my mind, but things can happen.”
