"The Big Bang Theory" season 9 is currently on a midseason break after airing episode 11, titled "The Opening Night Excitation". CBS will return with episode 12, titled "The Sales Call Sublimation", only on 7 January, 2016. While speculations are going wild about second half of season 9, showrunner Steve Molaro and co-creator Chuck Lorre have hinted that the series may or not be renewed for season 10 and that they don't know what the future holds for the sitcom.
The current season of "The Big Bang Theory" has been quite eventful so far with Leonard tying the knots with his on-again-off-again girlfriend Penny and most recently, Amy-Sheldon losing their virginity. While fans were still left speculating about what's going to happen in second half of season 9, Lorre and Molaro have already gone ahead and spoken about how season 10 could be the end of the series.
In their recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Molaro said that season 10 could be the end of it all. "I think so. I can't speak to the future or on behalf of the cast or where we'll be then but it's certainly possible that it could go past that. The reality is that maybe season 10 is the ending point," Molaro said.
"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," he added.
On the other hand, Lorre said that reaching season 9 itself was itself beyond his expectations. "I never imagined nine and here we are. I'm not going to presume to know how many years this has because it's ridiculous for me to guess. It's already gone beyond my wildest dreams so anything beyond this ... as long as everybody is having a good time and we're making a show we're proud of ... then it's worth continuing," said Lorre.
Meanwhile, the series is all set to reach its milestone 200th episode and Molaro isn't sure if they are planning anything special for this episode, unlike they did for the 100th episode where Leonard and Penny got back together.
"It's such a weird thing! It's just a number! Do we really need to pull out all the stops and do something crazy? I don't know. I've been starting to kick around things we might be able to do if we really want to do something extra special but nothing concrete yet," Molaro said.
"The Big Bang Theory" Season 9 is on a break and will return with episode 12, titled "The Sales Call Sublimation", on 7 January, 2016. For more information on the upcoming episode and live streaming details, don't forget to check back here.
