The Big Bang Theory Ending in Sight?
The Big Bang Theory won't go on forever.
The hit CBS sitcom—seriously, we mean hit, its ratings are insane—was just renewed for three more years.
That means it'll be on TV for at least a total of 10 seasons.
After that? Well, it might go the way of the dinosaurs...and live on in syndication forever.
"I'm going to move forward along with [co-creator] Chuck [Lorre] that 10 is the end unless we're told otherwise," show runner Steve Molaro told the reporter.
"These are decisions that are so far away I can't really even think about that.
I have no choice but to move forward … it's so far away…
The mindset is it's going to be the 10 and then we'll see what happens after that.
Molaro told us they do talk about how the show may end, but there is no set ending in mind.
"My concern is that we do it right and we end this show in a way that is as befitting of these characters that we respect and love," he said.
"As long as we can have the opportunity to end it in a way that serves them all properly, that's my concern—more than the number of seasons."
CBS recently became the home of Thursday night football games, putting The Big Bang Theory, which airs at 8 p.m., in a sort of limbo.
But CBS likely won't sideline the highest-rated comedy on TV until November.
Look for The Big Bang Theory to probably premiere on a different night before moving back to its regular Thursday home.
