Will the upcoming 10th season of The Big Bang Theory be the last hurrah for the immensely popular sitcom?
Despite producing over 200 episodes, The Big Bang Theory remains one of the most-watched programs on television. Although ratings continue to soar, there is some doubt as to the future of long-running sitcom… but not from CBS executives.
During the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Wednesday (Aug. 10), CBS Entertainment President Glenn Geller opened up about his take on the future of the series, admitting he “hopes it lasts forever.”
“We are very confident that everyone involved wants more Big Bang past year ten, and I know Warner Bros. will make those deals,” Geller said, as reported by E! News. “We’ll put it on for as long as everyone wants Big Bang on the air.”
You know who else hopes the CBS sitcom lasts forever? The fans... as well as star Mayim Bialik, who portrays Sheldon’s significant other Amy Farrah Fowler. Back in April, Bialik told People’s Choice that she’s happy to do the show “as long as people will have me.”
“Everyone has other things they do, and movie careers, and lives, and I’m grateful to be working with these people,” Mayim told People’s Choice. “As long as people want to have us, we’re here.”
