With The Big Bang Theory heading into its 10th season — and contract negotiations for the cast looming — the big question is whether the juggernaut comedy will be back for more.
“We are very confident that everyone involved wants more Big Bang past year 10,” CBS chief Glenn Geller told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Wednesday. “I know Warner Bros will make those deals.”
Breaking Bad star Dean Norris has landed a multi-episode arc on The Big Bang Theory, EW has learned exclusively.
Norris will play Captain Williams, a tough Air Force representative from the Department of Materiel Command, who’s interested in the boys’ quantum gyroscope for military applications.
The Big Bang Theory is one of the most popular and longest-running sitcoms on television right now, so star Simon Helberg is undoubtedly glad he didn’t follow his instincts to pass on the show back in 2007. Helberg stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about what was almost a huge mistake for his career.
Katey Sagal has been tapped to play Penny’s mom Susan, while Jack McBrayer will portray her brother Randall on the new season of The Big Bang Theory, executive producer Steve Molaro revealed at the show’s Comic-Con panel on Friday.
“We are finally going to meet more of Penny’s family,” Molaro said. “We’re going to be meeting Penny’s mom and her brother in the first episode back. We’re super excited that Katey Sagal will be playing Penny’s mom.”
Will Sheldon and Leonard soon be brothers? Is the Air Force really spying on the guys’ project? Will Penny be getting a new job? We hope to get some answers on that and much more during The Big Bang Theory panel at Comic-Con on Friday. To prepare for the big event, EW is here to give you a refresher on where most recent season finale ended:
The Big Bang Theory and Star Trek will collide at Comic-Con.
Although the season 9 finale of The Big Bang Theory was a tad lackluster, we do have something rather spectacular to look forward to in future episodes. Here’s hoping Chuck Lorre puts a little bazinga in the budding relationship of Dr. Alfred Hofstadter and Mary Cooper. Can you imagine the possibilities if Leonard and Sheldon are half-brothers? If they are related by marriage, do you think Sheldon will let Leonard sit in his spot? Or whistle in the apartment? Will the roommate agreement evolve into something conducive to siblings?
NBC’s tribute to Cheers creator James Burrows earlier this year did not produce the long-awaited Friends reunion that some fans hoped for (Matthew Perry wasn’t there), but it did produce some friendly meetings. The Big Bang Theory cast met the stars of Friends, for one, and Kaley Cuoco got to meet her idol, Jennifer Aniston.

Penny and Leonard planned to renew their wedding vows in The Big Bang Theory finale – though they didn’t quite make it down the aisle.
The Big Bang Theory will finally welcome Leonard’s father to the show during Thursday’s season finale — which could shockingly lead to a big change for the lovable geeks in Pasadena.
