There has been a lot of talk about the state of the hit CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory as of late and what the future may hold for the show. Production on the latest season of The Big Bang Theory is set to begin very soon but, as has been heavily reported, the stars of the show have yet to sign up for any more episodes of the show, since their current contract has expired.
Negotiations on these new contracts have been ongoing, with the likes of Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, and Jim Parsons reportedly asking for $1m per episode. This has led to many people suggesting that some of them may quit the show and, following Sheldon leaving at the end of the last season, many have suggested that we could have seen the last of Jim Parsons on the show.
With that said though, Jim Parsons has not suggested or even hinted that he is considering leaving the show and, if anything, Jim sounds rather excited about what the future has in store for Sheldon.
Parsons explained, "I never thought of that, but you’re right, he could show back up at home immediately, couldn’t he?" he said, before then going on to admit that he has been pleased with the way that the writers have handled Sheldon's relationship with Amy (Mayim Bialik).
He added, "I don’t know that we’re headed for the bedroom or the altar any time soon but, whatever… the writers have been so good with the pace of it, just bring more is all I would say."
The Big Bang Theory season eight is set to premiere on CBS on September 22. Let's hope the whole cast is signed up and on board by then.
