"Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television," says Nina Tassler, chairman, CBS Entertainment, when announcing the multi-year broadcast renewal.
"This multi-year deal further strengthens our network's position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. We're proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week."
