The Big Bang Theory doesn’t return until next month, but the cast and crew are already back in action for season 11 — complete with their live studio audience.
In the photo, Cuoco, who plays Penny, and her costar Johnny Galecki (aka Leonard Hofstadter), are both leaning over a rail so they can chat with fans. Per Cuoco’s caption, the cast chats with the audience during every episode taping — which just makes us love them even more.
Cuoco isn’t the only cast member excited to be back on set, however, both Jim Parsons (who plays Sheldon Cooper), and Mayim Bialik (who plays Amy Farrah Fowler), shared pictures of the first “tape night” for the upcoming season, which included a really fun ice sculpture of the show’s logo.
If that isn’t enough Big Bang Theory fun for all you science buffs — and comedy fans — then you’re in luck, because all month long the cast has been sharing sneak peeks including the first episode’s script, photos of life on set, and cast reunions that we don’t usually get to see.
If we know one thing about this new season, it’s that TBBT cast is SO ready for it, which doubles our excitement level.
The Big Bang Theory returns for season 11 on September 25, 2017 on CBS.
