#The Big Bang Theory has been renewed to have its 11th and 12th seasons with a total of 48 new episodes to offer. However, it looks like the show is coming to an end and its coming Season 12 might be its final bow.

Although it is dubbed as the most watch comedy television series, it is not far off until Penny (Kaley Cuoco), Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), and Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) are about to say goodbye. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, the show’s co-creator Chuck Lorre talked about the show’s future while presenting its new spinoff series “#Young Sheldon.”

The show’s continuation

"We never really figured to be at year 11, let alone what's going to happen after 12,” Chuck Lore told THR about “The Big Bang Theory.”

With that, the 64-year-old television writer believed that a lot of people will think that it will be the television series’ end.

Although that’s the case, he is just amazed that they have reached this milestone.

The television sitcom has been known for not plotting out its storyline in advance, which contradicts the usual production of most television series. With that, its former executive producer Steve Molaro, who put his focus more on “Young Sheldon,” revealed why they are doing this. “We look at one episode at a time,” he said. In fact, they have been doing this tactic for the past 10 seasons and it has brought them to be renewed for season 12.

In regards to the show’s ending, new CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl, on his first time to grace the TCA stage, discussed the possibilities about it. "As long as we can go 20 years, I hope to have it as long as we can," he said.

The show’s return

“The Big Bang Theory” #Season 11 has a new executive producer in Steve Holland, Variety reported.

Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar, and Simon Helberg will all return in the sitcom to reprise their roles. They even let their payouts be cut into lesser amounts so Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch’s salaries will be bigger than usual.

Additionally, Steven Molaro has stepped down as the show’s original showrunner as he has a lot on his plate right now with the spin-off series “Young Sheldon.” However, he will still be looking after the comedy series with Chuck Lorre but will focus more on Sheldon Cooper’s backstory.

“The Big Bang Theory” Season 11 will return to the screen on Sept. 25 on CBS.
