The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco says ten seasons is enough
Kaley Cuoco dropped a major hint on US television that The Big Bang Theory may finish after ten seasons.
Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Cuoco said that more episodes of the world’s most popular sitcom were a “very expensive question” for “a lot of people”.
When pressed by Kimmel about whether she thought ten seasons of the show was “enough”, Cuoco laughed and said “yes”.
“Ten seasons. That’s a lot of hair. That’s a lot of denim sizes. Ten years, come on! All of my twenties. I went from like hot to like thirty.”
Cuoco has starred as girl-next-door Penny for nine seasons of the hit show. However, the future of the CBS hit is currently up in the air as the cast’s contracts with the show all expire after the upcoming tenth season.
Cuoco and her co-stars Jim Parsons (Sheldon) and Johnny Galecki (Leonard) famously secured $1 million an episode in 2014 to make seasons seven through ten, and are reportedly looking for another pay rise this time around.
Last week, The Big Bang Theory showrunner Steve Molaro acknowledged the show could continue without some of its major stars, such as Cuoco, Parsons or Galecki. He said such an outcome would “certainly be different and weird”.
