It is probably not too much of a surprise that CBS has renewed The Big Bang Theory through to the 2016/2017 season. Being the most watched comedy show in the world makes this a no brainer.
“Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television,” said CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler in a statement. “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.”
Fans of the show have been quick to point out that no sitcom (not even Seinfeld or Friends) has ever received back-to-back three-season renewals so this is quite a unique moment for the show and with Sheldon entering into a “Relationship Agreement” with neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler, it can only be a matter of time before we see a Sheldon-Amy wedding on the horizon.
For you doubters or anyone that missed the big moment, here is the clip where Sheldon and Amy share a romantic kiss on Valentine’s Day.
