The Big Bang Theory‘s creators have said they are expecting to end the sitcom after 10 seasons.
Writer Steven Molaro told The Hollywood Reporter that he thought their recent deal to make three more series of the show about socially awkward physicists and their neighbour could see it lead up to the finale.
He said: “You never know. I’m going to move forward along with [co-creator] Chuck [Lorre] that 10 is the end unless we’re told otherwise.
“These are decisions that are so far away I can’t really even think about that. I have no choice but to move forward… It’s so far away… The mindset is it’s going to be the 10 and then we’ll see what happens after that.”
The Big Bang Theory, which screens on E4 in the UK, stars Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, who are all signed up to continue until series 10.
Steven added that there was no ending in mind at the moment and that they would see how things went for the characters.
He explained: “My concern is that we do it right and we end this show in a way that is as befitting of these characters that we respect and love.
“As long as we can have the opportunity to end it in a way that serves them all properly, that’s my concern – more than the number of seasons.”
