In late 2015, “The Big Bang Theory” looked like it would be over after season 10. The showrunner Steve Molaro suggested that season 10 would be the last season with an, “I think so.” He went on to say that he can’t speak for the entire cast (which includes our pal Mayim Bialik), stating:
“I can’t speak to the future or on behalf of the cast or where we’ll be then, but it’s certainly possible that it could go past that. The reality is that maybe season 10 is the ending point.”
However, it’s recently been speculated that the show may actually have two more seasons after this one, which could help squash fans’ anxiety–many fans are anxious that the show may not have an end with a resolution since season 10 is almost over without any conclusions in sight. Kunal Nayyar, who plays Rajesh on the show, also said at MCM Comic-Con in 2016 that the cast doesn’t know what will happen past the 10th season:
“Look – next season, as it stands on our contract, could be the last season… I know people are gonna want to know what happens after season 10. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
However, Deadline recently confirmed that cast members Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar are all finalizing new two-year contracts–which could be the sign all fans need. Interestingly, according to the report, the five primary cast members are hoping to earn around $1 million per episode, which is apparently equivalent to what they made through season eight to 10.
