The popular CBS show The Big Bang Theory has been renewed until 2017, but it’s been rumored that season 10 (the next one) could be the finale.
This slight rumor of season 10 being the finale for The Big Bang Theory comes from an interview with the show-runner, Steve Molaro. Molaro states that there are many options and people that the show could introduce, but he’s unsure of anything past the season 10 mark.
Below is an excerpt from the interview with THR:
“I can’t speak to the future or on behalf of the cast or where we’ll be then but it’s certainly possible that it could go past that,
The reality is that maybe season 10 is the ending point. The real answer is I don’t know and all I can do right now is go episode to episode and try to make each one the best that we can. There’s still so many episodes to go. Even if hypothetically season 10 was the end, I wouldn’t be focusing on that yet. That seems like something that would be dealt with way down the line.
There are still a lot of characters out there in this world that we’ve never met that I’m still excited, over the next season and a half, to get a chance to do something about. We’ve never met Penny’s mom, Leonard’s dad, Sheldon’s Meemaw or Howard’s dad — and that’s a big tentpole that’s still floating out there.”
With all of the avenues available for The Big Bang Theory, it’s no surprise that CBS renewed it until 2017 – but it all depends on if the show can truly be extended for another two years. The options and material is available for the writers and directors, but I believe they would rather end the show on a high mark, than a low mark.
I can say as a fan of the show, I would be truly sad to see it end, but a decade (10 years) is still a great run for a show that gained so much momentum.
