Fans of the four Caltech geniuses can now feel at ease as The Big Bang Theory season 11 renewal is almost certain. Though not confirmed, the show’s return is currently ongoing discussions.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS could announce very soon the next season of TBBT along with season 12. Apparently, the major stars of the show are also close to signing new contracts to return for two more seasons of the Emmy-winning show. CBS CEO Leslie Moonves confirmed to reporters during the company’s earnings call on Wednesday that they are “very very close” to renew The Big Bang Theory for two more seasons.
THR cited some sources in saying that Jim Parsons (Sheldon), Johnny Galecki (Leonard), Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Simon Helberg (Howard), and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) will also be in the same salary range. This means Parsons, Galecki, and Cuoco would remain in the $1 million per episode salary, while Helberg and Nayyar will receive salary raises.
Parsons, Galecki, and Cuoco negotiated for a $1 million per episode contract each three years ago. The production of season 8 was delayed because of the pay negotiations at the time.
Meanwhile, Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) and Mayim Bialik (Amy) previously negotiated together and secured raises. If the ongoing negotiations conclude successfully, both are expected to get a raise for the upcoming seasons since their characters have become an integral part of the show. In fact, Bialik had received four Emmy nominations for her role as Sheldon’s girlfriend, Deadline noted.
What to Expect in The Big Bang Theory Season 11 Renewal
A lot of things could happen in the next season. Sheldon and Amy could finally tie the knot in season 11. That is if Sheldon proposes to Amy this season.
In this week’s episode, Amy and Sheldon will be having their first major fight since their cohabitation experiment started. Amy had also expressed her concern that Sheldon doesn’t seem to have any plan to marry her.
As for Leonard and Penny, she may get pregnant in the eleventh season. Penny told Amy and Bernadette that she is worried about having kids. Cuoco’s character may reveal at the finale of the current season that she is pregnant.
Howard and Bernadette will deal with their toddler child in season 11. Meanwhile, Sheldon, Leonard, and Howard may finally see the military using their project in the upcoming installment.
Lastly, Raj may finally find the woman he has been waiting for in season 11. He could possibly get married as well.
