Sheldon Cooper and his friends are likely staying on the small screen far longer. News has it that CBS is planning to give Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco and the rest of the “Big Bang Theory” stars a deal that will see them doing two more seasons of the comedy.
TV Line reports that negotiations, for the shows renewal, have been setting in place. Bill Prady, the show’s executive producer, actually hinted on his Facebook that the deal is done despite no confirmation from CBS.
“Big Bang Theory” has been touted to end after Season 10 given its length of time on TV. But Jim Parsons apparently told the press via Sunday Today‘s Willie Geist that all of the actors want to keep doing the show.
“I would be shocked if that didn’t happen. I really would be,” Parson said. The actor has been one of TV’s most lucrative stars earning $1 million per episode for the “Big Bang Theory.” Galecki and Cuoco also earn the same amount, while it is presumed that the rest of the cast will get their contracts renegotiated during the renewal talks.
“Big Bang Theory” is about a group of friends who work as scientists. They might be experts in their field but they are not experts in other aspects of life. The show also stars Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch.
“Big Bang Theory” is actually getting a spinoff for next season featuring a young Sheldon Cooper, also on CBS.
