The Big Bang Theory has been onscreen for almost a decade now and hasn't failed to please the huge audience it currently has. The show has now officially been renewed for an 11th season, beating America's other well known sitcom, #Friends. However, after Season 11, the show could potentially be cancelled due to Jim Parsons.
Audiences were left hanging when Warner Bros. and CBS refused to comment whether or not #TheBigBangTheory would make a comeback following the ongoing tenth season. But, news has reached the internet that Season 11 has an air date and previously had a slight hint at the season arc before the information was removed.
Season 11 of the show is currently expected to air mid September 2017, immediately after Season 10. Rumors suggest that Season 11 will broadcast in America promptly on CBS on September 1st, 2017 with all the main seven characters making a huge comeback. Before Season 11 was confirmed, the show FIRST faced cancellation due to salary arguments between Jim Parson, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki against the show producers. The three main stars demanded a pay rise, which was then declined by the showrunners. Parsons, Cuoco and Galecki are already on a $1,000,000 per episode salary, but have come to agreements that it isn't enough.
