CBS has renewed The Big Bang Theory for three seasons, taking it through to its tenth season in 2016/2017. With The Big Bang Theory currently enjoying its highest-rated season yet, its renewal and a multi-year deal were widely expected.
This is the show’s second three-year deal, following the 2011 deal which saw the show renewed through to its current seventh season.
Warner Bros. TV is reportedly in contract negotiations with the five original cast members, after Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch renewed their contracts last year.
“Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television,” said CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler. “This multi-year deal further strengthens our network’s position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. We’re proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week,” she said.
