Despite being the most watched series between the coveted 18-49 demographic, fans of The Big Bang Theory have heard that the next two years may be final two seasons for the sitcom.

In Seasons 11 and 12, there will be 48 more episodes for fans to catch up with Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, Bernadette, Penny, Raj, and Amy Farrah Fowler, but fans are worried that will be it for the sitcom.

Creator Chuck Lorre wants the show to go beyond two more seasons.

“We never really figured to be at year 11,” said Lorre, “let alone what’s going to happen after 12. One could easily presume that would be the end of the series, but I’m just amazed we’re here.”

The Big Bang Theory has already gone beyond other shows like Seinfeld or Friends, perhaps because they refuse to write story arcs and plots in advance. Perhaps this keeps things more fresh for the writers.

For Seinfeld, he felt like the show shouldn’t follow the cast too late in life.

Screenrant writes:

“However, with CBS also concentrating on The Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon, could there be a new lease of life for the main show? After stepping back as showrunner to concentrate on Young Sheldon, Steve Molaro says that the comedy takes each day as it comes: “We look at one episode at a time, that’s what we’ve been doing for the last 10 years and it’s gotten us this far.”

“As for the big question on whether it will be an unlucky/lucky 13 for The Big Bang Theory, CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl was optimistic for a bright future for our nerds: “As long as we can go; 20 years. I hope to have it as long as we can.” With expensive costs of up to $10 million per episode, The Big Bang Theory isn’t exactly the cheapest show around to create.”

Will you stick with TBBT after Season 12?
