When Will 'The Big Bang Theory' Season 11 Premiere? The Gang Won't Be Gone For Long
The Big Bang Theory is nearing the end of Season 10 — yes, Season 10 — with the finale episode airing on Thursday, May 11. After a decade of loyal viewership, it's hard for fans to imagine a world without Sheldon, Leonard, Wolowitz, Raj, Penny, Amy, and Bernadette. So, what's in store for the future of the show? When will The Big Bang Theory Season 11 premiere?
Fans can rest easy knowing that there are plenty of Big Bang Theory episodes on the way. In fact, the show was renewed not only for Season 11, but for Season 12 as well. That's right, Deadline confirmed that Big Bang Theory has been renewed for two more seasons. And, the Deadline piece states that during the show's impressive run, it's pulled in over $1 billion in syndication fees, and that's on top of advertising during first-run episodes. No wonder CBS is keeping the series around!
Fans will likely have to wait for a fall premiere of Season 11, given the premiere dates of previous seasons. (This year, Sept. 19, and in Season 9, Sept. 21.) But, there are plenty of other places to watch the cast this summer. You can find cast members from The Big Bang Theory in these 12 other projects — some old, some new. Considering that the series got its start 10 years ago, that means many of the stars had breakout roles long before that. So buckle up, because this list gets pretty nostalgic.
Who could forget David and Darlene, aka young Johnny Galecki and Sara Gilbert? According to Deadline, Roseanne is getting a reboot, and Gilbert is already committed. Will Galecki take a break from The Big Bang Theory to reprise his role too?
2. 'Hidden Figures'
Jim Parsons recently portrayed Paul Stafford in the Oscar-nominated film. His bigoted character has Sheldon's smarts, but he's definitely not as endearing.
3. 'Garden State'
You probably haven't watched Garden State since high school, so it may be time for a refresher. Parsons has a small part as the memorable knight in Braff's directorial debut, and was also in Zach Braff's 2014 film Wish I Was Here.
4. 'Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie'
Kaley Cuoco is a version of herself in Jeff Garlin's new Netflix original movie about a homicide detective named Gene Handsome.
5. '8 Simple Rules'
Remember when Cuoco was John Ritter's character's teenage daughter on 8 Simple Rules? The show ran for three seasons, a run cut short by Ritter's untimely death.
Cuoco recurs as Billie Jenkins on Charmed, a novice witch who was rumored to be the lead of a possible spin-off.
7. 'Florence Foster Jenkins'
Simon Helberg (a trained pianist) plays Florence's accompanist Cosmé McMoon in the 2016 award-winning film.
8. 'Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog'
Helberg plays Dr. Horrible's henchman, Moist, in Joss Whedon's cult web series.
9. 'The Bronze'
Melissa Rauch back-handsprings far away from Bernadette in this dramedy about a washed up gymnast, which she also co-wrote.
10. 'True Blood'
Rauch's True Blood character Summer had a big thing for Hoyt Fortenberry.
You know you want to watch Beaches for the millionth time this weekend, especially for the "Glory of Love" number with little Mayim Bialik, who plays young CC.
Bialik got her start on the '90s sitcom Blossom, where she played the title character and rocked a lot of enviable sunflower hats.
The Big Bang Theory gang will definitely back, probably by the fall. And you can visit with them in other projects in the meantime.
