Jim Parsons said everybody wants another season of "Big Bang Theory" to happen, and that's definitely giving us hope
After ten seasons of Big Bang Theory, we’ve heard a couple of rumors that the show might be winding down. With Jim Parsons’ Sheldon Big Bang Theory spinoff and Johnny Galecki’s new pilot pickup, an eleventh season seemed up in the air. Luckily, the show’s stars are reassuring us that’s not the case. They think.
“I know that everybody wants to [return],” Parsons shared with Sunday Today. “So I would be shocked if that didn’t happen. I really would be.”
And Parsons isn’t the only one chiming in.
“We are very confident that everyone involved wants more Big Bang past Year 10,” said CBS president Glenn Geller last August. “I know Warner Bros will make those deals… We’ll put it on for as long as everyone wants Big Bang on the air. I hope it lasts forever.”
Talking with The Huffington Post, Galecki shared, “I know that everybody here on the stage really wants it to happen, so I’m confident that we’ll work it out.”
The good news?
Assuming we get Season 11, it’ll be in addition to Johnny Galecki and Parsons’ new shows.
Based on A.J. Jacobs’s best-selling book, Galecki’s new pilot is called Living Biblically. The half-hour comedy will center around a young man attempted to live as literally as possible according to the rules of the Bible.
And though Parsons will be involved in the Sheldon spinoff, it won’t be in a starring role. Instead, he’ll be executive producing the show about a teenage Sheldon — and they’ll be hunting for a new, younger actor for the role.
Both these new shows sound awesome. We can’t wait to see them — plus, of course, Big Bang Theory season 11.
