BANG! 3 more seasons for the Big Bang Theory

 The Big Bang Theory had an iconic 3 year multi-year renewal deal with CBS which kept the series going until 2014-2015. As the highest rated comedy on network television it was not a question as to whether or not the show would be renewed but rather for how many seasons the show would be renewed for. Well congratulations Theory Fans, CBS and Warner Brothers have reached another 3 year renewal deal for the iconic television series. This would allow the series to at least see 10 seasons. This deal would keep The Big Bang Theory on CBS until at least 2016-2017. Big Bang is not the only chuck Lorre series in talks for additional seasons, there are rumors of a 13-episode final season of Two and a Half Men eyed along with renewals for next season of Mike & Molly and freshman Mom. 
Even through the show
has been renewed that does not mean that the all of the cast will return. There have been no real negotiations so far with original cast members Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, whose contracts are up at the end of this season. Put on hold while license fee negotiations were going on, talks with Galecki, Parsons and Cuoco are expected to kick into gear soon. Currently at about $350,000 per episode, the three leads are projected to get to the Friends cast mark of $1 million an episode. Are you excited for another 3 years of The Big Bang Theory or are you more envious of their likely increase in pay checks? Let us know in the comments!
