'Big Bang Theory' renewed for two more seasons through 2019

With the new agreement the show has been renewed through the 2018-2019 season.

CBS and Warner Bros. The half-hour, single-camera comedy will follow a 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper (Big Little Lies' Iain Armitage) living with his family - Zoe Perry will play his god-fearing mother, who was brought to life on the flagship by her real-life mother Laurie Metcalf - in East Texas and going to high school.

CBS Monday announced a two-year renewal for TV's most-watched scripted show, The Big Bang Theory, after most of the cast members, led by Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco, who have signed on for upcoming 11th and 12th seasons.

The news comes after it was reported that the main stars, including - Kayley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, and Johnny Galecki - were considering taking a pay cut so that Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch could take home a bigger salary.

The popular comedy series, which premiered back in September 2007, has been television's #1 comedy in viewers since 2010-2011 and continues as the #1 comedy in key demographics for the fifth straight season.

According to reports, Bialik and Rauch are still without contracts, though they are very likely to make more than $400,000 per episode per their new deals.

Johnny, Jim, Kaley, Simon and Kunal - who have all starred on The Big Bang Theory since it began in 2007 - offered to lose 100,000 dollars (£81,000) per episode from their salaries, reported USA magazine Variety.

The series is from Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros.

CBS is also planning to launch a spin-off series, Young Sheldon, which will be narrated by Parsons and will explore his character's childhood, later this year.
