Will there be another Big Bang Theory spin-off? Recently, executive producer Chuck Lorre spoke with TVLine about the possibility of another spin-off TV show.
Currently, Big Bang Theory is nearing the end of its 12th and final season. The show’s only spin-off so far, Young Sheldon, has already been renewed for seasons three and four.
Speaking to TVLine, Lorre said he would only consider another Big Bang Theory spin-off if a good idea arose:
Unless there was a creative reason to do it — a wonderfully, wonderfully creative reason to do it — than the only reason [to do it] is economics, and that’s not good enough. This is hard work. And if you’re going to do it, you gotta love what you’re doing; you’ve gotta be passionate about it. And if you’re just chasing money, that’s not enough.”
However, even if The Big Bang Theory doesn’t get another spin-off, the character of Sheldon will continue. Jim Parsons told TVLine he has recorded narration for Young Sheldon from the point of view of an older Sheldon:
In fact, I’ve already done voiceovers [on Young Sheldon] from ages that are older than I ever got with Sheldon [on Big Bang]. He spoke of his children last season, and obviously we haven’t seen that yet. I will get to hear where [the writers’] imaginations take that character… that I never would’ve gotten to find out otherwise.”
The series finale of The Big Bang Theory premieres on CBS on May 16th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
