Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of "beautiful minds" that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women. All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny moves in next door.
CBS announced today that The Big Bang Theory has been renewed for two additional seasons, which will take it to at least Season 12. Currently television's highest-rated comedy, the long-running series has been a consistent top performer for the network through its 200-plus episodes on the air.
Since its premiere in 2007, The Big Bang Theory has been winning over audiences and garnering critical acclaim like few other comedies ever have. More viewers have been tuning into the show since 2010 than any other comedy on TV, and it consistently leads the ratings among many key demographics.
The show's current 10th season has six episodes remaining before it concludes for the summer. Look for Season 11 to premiere in late September.
