Don’t fret, “Big Bang Theory” fans — CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl doesn’t think this fall will mark the end for (Old) Sheldon and the gang.

“We don’t believe it’s the final year,” Kahl said Sunday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “We are in preliminary discussions to renew the show with Warner Bros. Productions, the studio.”

With the exception of ABC’s recent midseason “Roseanne” revival, “Big Bang” has dominated the Nielsen ratings charts among comedies — so why stop that train?

Additionally, Kahl said that Rob Lowe drama “Code Black” may still come back.

“It’s doing incredibly well,” he told reporters. “It’s a well-done show, and we’d like to figure out a way to maybe make it work.”

“Economics were a little challenged on it,” Kahl added, “and we’re gonna take a look.”

Of course, Kahl mostly fielded questions about sexual harassment scandals at CBS, including the bombshell New Yorker story about his boss Leslie Moonves.

“Leslie has been an excellent boss and mentor for a long time. And he put me in this job,” Kahl said on Sunday. But he noted that “all allegations need to be and are being taken seriously.”

Kahl also spoke about the new investigation into former “NCIS: New Orleans” showrunner Brad Kern.

“CBS Studios investigated Brad Kern in 2016,” Kahl told reporters. “Action was taken after that investigation and, you know, there have been no complaints since. I’m troubled and frustrated that reports continue to come out in the press. And because of that we’ve opened up another investigation with outside counsel. The goal of any investigation, internal or external, is to get to the truth, and I believe they will get to truth.”
