The Big Bang Theory contract talks have officially delayed production on the CBS hit comedy.
Stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar have not yet reached a new deal with studio Warner Bros. Television, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, with the cast officially not returning to work on season eight.
CBS' The Big Bang Theory opened Friday at Comic-Con with a panel in Ballroom 20 that started with a special musical performance and took a stroll down memory lane with the writers behind TV's No. 1 comedy among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demo.
Big changes are coming for Kaley Cuoco's Penny on The Big Bang Theory's eighth season.
When Penny decided she didn't need to be famous and have a "big career" in order to be happy after she was canned from a B-movie, Penny will continue to make what she called "smart decisions" for her career in the upcoming season of CBS' hit comedy.
Four months after CBS renewed ratings juggernaut The Big Bang Theory for three additional seasons — through its 10th run — stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco, as well as Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, still do not have deals to return to the No. 1 comedy among total viewers and adults 18-49.
The lovable geeks on CBS' The Big Bang Theory are growing up before our eyes. Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) have routinely pondered marriage, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) are kissing -- gasp! -- and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) has broken through with the ladies, while Howard (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) are growing stronger as they navigate marriage.
