‘Big Bang Theory’ Seasons 11-12 Renewal Happening! Amy Furious Over Sheldon’s Kiss & Tell Antics [VIDEO]By Donna Mills, UniversityHerald Reporter
Congratulations are in order for "The Big Bang Theory" crew and the long-running sitcom's dedicated fans. CBS and Warner Bros. are about to snag a two-season renewal for the comedy series.
Leslie Moonves, CBS Corp. chairman-CEO, confirmed this week that the network is "very, very close" to inking a Season 11 and 12 pickup, Variety reported. Each season is expected to have 24 episodes.
This means that the studio is about to finalize new contracts for the show's five lead stars: Jim Parsons (Sheldon), Kaley Cuoco (Penny), Johnny Galecki (Leonard), Kunal Nayyar (Raj) and Simon Helberg (Howard). The cast's current contracts and CBS license agreement with Warner Bros. are expiring after Season 10. According to Deadline, the five stars will earn around a million dollars per episode in their new contracts.
"The Big Bang Theory" is airing its 16th episode titled "The Allowance Evaporation" this week. The episode will showcase Sheldon and Amy's (Mayim Bialik) first fight since they started living under the same roof.
Raj, meanwhile, will be horrified at how challenging financial independence is after his father cut off his monetary support, SpoilerTV reported. Raj's dad, Dr. Koothrappali (Brian George), is expected to show up in the episode.
Amy's anger comes from the fact that Sheldon shared the details of their sex life to other people. Now, their colleagues know that they only have sex once a year -- during Sheldon's birthday. Sheldon has to explain to a very upset Amy why he divulged that intimate information.
Fans have constantly theorized that Galecki's Leonard wears glasses with no lenses in the series. The actor confirmed the theory on The Huffington Post's Build Series.
Galecki recounted that he rehearsed the show's pilot episode using glasses with lenses, though that didn't work out because the lenses were catching the light. He then proceeded to remove the lenses so it won't give off glares to the cameras.
The lens-less glasses aren't always a delight, though. Galecki said that there was a time when his cast mates laughed at him because he unconsciously put his finger through the frame and scratched his eye.
