The much loved American sit-com, The Big Bang Theory has been renewed for two more seasons. Recently, the show’s network CBS and production company Warner Bros declared that they have reached a new two-year deal that will keep the show on air through 2018 and 2019.
The renewal confirms that The Big Bang Theory will run through at least 12 seasons.
The ongoing season, season 10, was the last part of a deal with the actors. Reports about the renewal said the original cast — Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar — would take a pay cut to give Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch a raise. According to Variety, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar has offered to cut their per-episode fee by $100,000 so they could shoulder Bialik and Rauch’s $50,000 salary increase each.
Meanwhile, season 10 still has nine more episodes left before the finale. The Big Bang Theory is currently the No 1 show on broadcast TV in terms of viewers.
