‘Big Bang Theory’: CBS Boss ‘Very Confident’ Show Will Continue Past Season 10

Negotiations are underway as cast contracts are up after the upcoming season


“The Big Bang Theory” could be far from over after the upcoming season 10, when much of the cast’s current three-year contracts are up.

CBS boss Glenn Geller, speaking at the Television Critics’ Association’s summer press tour Wednesday, expressed optimism when asked whether the show would continue.

“We are very confident that everyone involved wants more ‘Big Bang’ past year 10,” the exec said during the network panel. “I know [show producer] Warner Bros. will make those deals.”

The sitcom’s star Jim Parsons has won three Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

The show also stars Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch.

Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Bill Prady are executive producers. The series comes from Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. Lorre and Prady created it.
