‘The Big Bang Theory’ could continue after Season 12, according to CBS chief Kelly Kahl.
There is good news for those who hope that Season 12 won’t be the end of CBS’ smash-hit comedy series “The Big Bang Theory.” The network seems confident that the show will continue after the cast of the current contracts.
CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl told reporters at Sunday’s Television Critics Association summer press tour that he doesn’t think the show will end despite the cast not yet refreshed to continue.
“We do not believe that it is the last year. We are in preliminary talks to extend the show with Warner Bros.,” he showed when he was asked about the future of the series.
Chuck Lorre, the co-creator of “The Big Bang Theory,” told The Hollywood Reporter last year that he believed that Season 12 could be the last for the gang of intrepid nerds. He has even confirmed the fact that no one believed that the show would even last long when it began.
The outlet notes that Warner Bros. Television inked a new cast. in 2017 for an estimated $900,000 per person. However, that the deal is not for nothing past Season 12, which means that after the upcoming season, as The “Big Bang Theory” will continue, CBS is looking to a new round of negotiations with the core cast. The current star line-up consists of Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik.
Series co-creator Bill Prady, responded to the news in the most vague way possible, just comment “Huh,” on the social media.
