The Big Bang Theory scored a big renewal on Monday, with CBS and Warner Bros. Television agreeing on a new two-year deal that will keep the blockbuster comedy series on TV through 2019.

With the agreement, Big Bang’s run will extend through at least a 12th season and comes on the heels of CBS greenlighting the franchise’s first spinoff series, Young Sheldon.

It has been reported that Big Bang stars Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar would take pay cuts so co-stars Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauchcould receive raises.

The future of TV’s top-rated broadcast comedy had been in limbo, as the actors’ current contracts only ran through the end of the current 10th season. Back in August, CBS President Glenn Gelleraddressed the show’s future, saying the network was bullish on continuing Big Bang for the foreseeable future.

“We are very confident that everyone wants Big Bang past year 10 and I know Warner Bros. [TV] will make those deals,” Geller said at the time.

Days after Geller’s statements, the cast took group selfies to kick off the start of production on season 10, amid reports that the current season may be its last.
