A report by Deadline has confirmed that The Big Bang Theory has been renewed through to 2019, bringing the series up to twelve seasons.

The cast includes Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch. The series has won Emmy Awards for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series" for star Jim Parsons (2010, 2011, 2013, 2014), a People's Choice Award for Favorite TV Comedy (2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017), Television Critics Association Awards for "Outstanding Achievement in Comedy" (2009, 2013) and "Individual Achievement in Comedy" for Parsons (2009). Bialik and Rauch have not yet signed new contracts, according to The Hollywood Reporter, but negotiations are reportedly nearing a successful close.

Rauch and Bialik, both introduced as guest stars in Season 3 and becoming regulars in Season 4, had been earning about $175,000 an episode in their most recent deal.

The original five have been earning $1 million an episode for the past three seasons. The duo, who are negotiating together, are not expected to get parity, though they are considered very likely to score more than $400,000 per episode. The announcement follows news from last week that Young Sheldon, a spin-off prequel, will premiere next September on CBS. In its 10th season, Big Bang Theory remains a key property for CBS and WBTV, ranking as broadcast's No. 1 scripted series in total viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.

The power of this comedy is apparent in its multi-season renewals.
