Before I go on, this has nothing to do with my blog about the studio behind The Big Bang Theory being sued over song royalties.
It’s been a long run for the hit comedy The Big Bang Theory. With nine seasons in tow, showrunner Steve Molaro told The Hollywood Reporter that “The reality is that maybe season 10 is the ending point.” The key word in that quote is maybe. Co-Creator Chuck Lorre had a slightly different sentiment when it came to ending the show.
“I’m not going to presume to know how many years this has because it’s ridiculous for me to guess. It’s already gone beyond my wildest dreams so anything beyond this … as long as everybody is having a good time and we’re making a show we’re proud of … then it’s worth continuing.”
It seems like both producers are a little unsure of the show’s future. It’s locked in due a multiyear deal through the 2016-17 broadcast year so season ten is definitely happening. I think the show’s future simply rests on its continuing commercial success. Although, according to THR there are lots of unexplored plot line to trace like meeting Penny’s mom, or Sheldon’s “Meemaw.”
The show still rates as the No. 1 comedy among 18-49-year-olds, so it still has a massive audience.
