'The Big Bang Theory' Confirmed For Two More Seasons

'The Big Bang Theory' Confirmed For Two More Seasons

US comedy The Big Bang Theory has been signed up for another two seasons, meaning it will run until at least 2019.

A spokesperson from CBS confirmed the news, saying: "Congrats to the cast and crew of The Big Bang Theory, which premiered almost a decade ago in September 2007 and has been TV's No. 1 comedy for the past five years in a row."

The contracts for the new series were signed after the main cast announced they would be taking pay cuts, so that their co-stars could have a pay rise. However you feel about the show, that's a pretty decent thing to do.

Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar) and Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) each receive $1 million (£802,900) per episode.

However, their co-stars Mayim Bialik (who plays Amy Farrah Fowler) and Melissa Rauch (who plays Bernadette Rostenkowski) each received a much lower amount of $200,000 (£160,580).

The original five have now agreed to sacrifice $100,000 (£80,290) each so that Bailik and Rauch can receive $450,000 (£361,305) per episode.

Variety claims that multiple sources have confirmed the generous gesture. And with that done it seems like the cast were happy to sign on the dotted line.

A spin-off series - Young Sheldon - is also in the works, with nine-year-old Iain Armitage playing the role of young Sheldon. Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper, in The Big Bang Theory will narrate.
