CBS renews 'Big Bang Theory' for two more seasons

Additionally, Big Bang has been used to launch numerous new CBS series, most recently Kevin Can Wait, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Mom, The Odd Couple and Scorpion.

It's two more years for "The Big Bang Theory". The pact comes on the heels of the two companies closing a deal for a spinoff prequel series, Young Sheldon, which is expected to launch next fall behind Big Bang.

The popular CBS series has been renewed for two more seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The announcement was made following a lengthy negotiation with the support characters.

With the new agreement, broadcast television's #1 scripted series in viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 has been renewed through the 2018-2019 season. In 2011, Parsons won a Golden Globe for "Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy", a Critics' Choice Television Award for "Best Actor in a Comedy Series" in 2014, and a 2017 People's Choice Award for "Favorite Comedic TV Actor". Parsons will narrate the show as Sheldon and is an executive producer. It's unclear if season 12 will be the show's swan song.

The stars of the show, which is now in its 10th season, agreed to a new deal with production company Warner Bros., paving the way for a renewal by CBS. While Jim Parsons (Sheldon), Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Johnny Galecki (Leonard), Simon Helberg (Howard) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) had been pocketing a cool $1 million per episode, Bialik and Rauch were pulling in "just" $200,000 an episode. So bazingas all around for the cast and the crew.
