If you never miss an episode of The Big Bang Theory, you'll be pleased to hear that there is even more Shamy in the future as CBS announced they are keeping the show around through season ten. The show, which CBS says is the most watched sitcom in the ages 18-49 bracket, has been picked up for three more years and will last at least through the 2016-2017 season
“Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and THE BIG BANG THEORY is the biggest comedy force on television,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment. “This multi-year deal further strengthens our network’s position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. We’re proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week.”
The contract renewal announcement was made on the official Facebook page for The Big Bang Theory today, which has received a lot of love, as it has been liked and shared thousands of times.
The Big Bang Theory premiered back in 2007 and starred Jim Parsons (Sheldon), Johnny Galecki (Leonard), Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Simon Helberg (Howard), and Kunal Nayyar (Raj). Throughout the years, Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) and Mayim Bialik (Amy) were added as regular cast members. While many shows see a drop off in viewers after the first handful of seasons, The Big Bang Theory has been wildly successful and has brought in an average of 20 million viewers per season the past two seasons.
After the mini-breakup that occurred between Sheldon and Amy in last week's episode, it will be interesting to see how things progress with Shamy as the rest of the season plays out. With most of the season underway, The Big Bang Theory has only five episodes remaining in season six until the season finale, which airs on May 16. At least now we know that there is plenty of Sheldon and Amy (plus Leonard and Penny, Howard and Bernadette, and Raj and Cinnamon) in the years to come.
