The Big Bang Theory is one of the most watched shows on television and, because of that, talks regarding a renewal are currently underway.

The series, which premiered on September 24, 2017, has been a tremendous success since the beginning and that same success might keep the show going for a couple more seasons.

According to Deadline, CBS Entertainment President, Kelly Kahl, addressed the show's situation during the 2018 Television Critics Association summer press tour, revealing that new seasons are being discussed.

The Big Bang Theory is heading into it's 12th season, which will be the last of the two-season pickup for the show. The two-year renewal was made in 2017 and it was supposed to be the sitcom's final run.

But given the great rates that the show still manages to achieve, Kahl believes that it won't be the end of it and that they're currently negotiating with Warner Bros to keep the show on the air.

While the talks are still in a very early stage, Kahl admitted that the network is very interested and open to multiple new seasons, but first, the studio must be able to get the cast on board.


This season, Sheldon and Amy's wedding during the finale boosted the ratings even higher, being considered one of the most watched programs on TV, edging Sunday Night Football and only behind the now-canceled Roseanne.

According to Kahl, as long as Chuck Lorre, the creator of the show, and his team have stories to tell, CBS would gladly keep The Big Bang Theory alive and well.

In order to make the dream happen, Warner Bros will have to negotiate new contracts with the cast for Season 13. 

The show's original quintet - Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar - are the highest-paid actors on television, earning around $1 million per episode.
