Could CBS' top comedy The Big Bang Theory be headed towards the finish line? The cast has had some major events happen as of late, and the show is renewed through 2017, so what next? According to showrunner Steve Molaro the tenth season of Emmy Award-winning sitcom could possibly be the last.
In an interview with THR, Molaro mentioned that he's unsure of anything past season 10, as there's so much more to explore, but he's not concerned with that just yet.
"I can't speak to the future or on behalf of the cast or where we'll be then but it's certainly possible that it could go past that," Molaro said. "The reality is that maybe season 10 is the ending point. The real answer is I don't know and all I can do right now is go episode to episode and try to make each one the best that we can. There's still so many episodes to go. Even if hypothetically season 10 was the end, I wouldn't be focusing on that yet. That seems like something that would be dealt with way down the line."
As for the checklist of things left on the show, Molaro has several ideas that he'd like to come see to fruition if the story was right. "There are still a lot of characters out there in this world that we've never met that I'm still excited, over the next season and a half, to get a chance to do something about. We've never met Penny's mom, Leonard's dad, Sheldon's Meemaw or Howard's dad — and that's a big tentpole that's still floating out there."
The Big Bang Theory is approaching its 200th episode landmark and Molaro is throwing ideas on what will happen with that event. So what do you say, readers, should the show wrap up after season 10, or is there plenty of story left to go even further?
The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 PM on CBS.
