The Big Bang Theory has had a successful run for nine seasons and is already renewed for season 10 by CBS. While the show is the highest rated sitcom, the 10th season could be the last one for the show, according to actor Kunal Nayyar.
While appearing at MCM Comic Con in London, Nayyar said [via E Online], "Look, next season, as it stands on our contract, could be the last season of Big Bang Theory. To be completely honest, I know people are gonna want to know what happens after season 10. I don't know what's going to happen."
The actor, however, revealed that he would love to continue with the show as long as fans want. He said, "If it were up to me, personally, I would love to do the show as long as you guys would have us on the air." His co-star Melissa Rauch also added that she would love to continue with the show after season 10, and said, "I don't know, I'd love to. We'll see."
Nayyar, who plays an astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrappali in the show, refuted the possibility of The Big Bang Theory movie. He explained, "It is a very difficult format to do for a movie because we shoot in front of a live studio audience with four cameras. So unless the movie was a two-and-a-half hour sitcom version of The Big Bang Theory, I don't think we could ever actually do a movie."
However, the actor teased, "We could do it on stage."
Previously, showrunner Steve Molaro has hinted at the possibility of the show ending after season 10. Molaro told The Hollywood Reporter, "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."
