Should viewers start preparing to say goodbye to their favourite gang of nerds?
Maybe, with The Big Bang Theory“s showrunner theorizing that the hit sitcom may wrap it up after the upcoming 10th season.
Are producers looking at the next season as if it will be the last. “I think so,”; says showrunner Steve Molaro in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”;
While Molaro is optimistic the show could continue, although it would likely require more big salary increases for the cast (all of whom negotiated massive raises in a three-year deal that would end after the completion of season 10). “The reality is that maybe season 10 is the ending point,”; says Molaro. “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.”;
For the series’ co-creator, Chuck Lorre, he admits he’s amazed that the show has even made it to a 10th season, let alone more. “I never imagined nine [seasons] and here we are,”; he tells THR. “I’m not going to presume to know how many years this has because it’s ridiculous for me to guess. It’s already gone beyond my wildest dreams so anything beyond this … as long as everybody is having a good time and we’re making a show we’re proud of … then it’s worth continuing.”;
