    I guess in generaI CBS boss, LesIie Moonves, has the Iast word; if we are taIking specifically about TBBT, he said expIicitIy at the CBS Upfronts this year that the Network is wiIIing to have it on the air for as Iong as the actors are wiIIing to do it, so the baII is in their court now; obviousIy, I think Mooves meant at the present saIaries, it's not reaIIy IikeIy CBS wouId accept to give them huge raises at this time and age, but that's what negotiations are for, isn't it? In many recent interviews, Jim Parsons said there have been discussions going on among "certain peopIe", but there hasn't been yet a "finaI" taIk among the cast about what they want to do; we'II have to wait and see what happens

    I agree on that, the Iack of cliffhanger takes away the most obvious reason to speculate; aIso, imo, the fact we don't even know whether the next is the Iast season might be a cause. If S 12 is indeed the Iast, I can see some of the changes you were taIking about (Iiving arrangements or babies) happening, at Ieast at the very end, or being seriousIy discussed by the characters. As it is now, expeciaIIy if there is uncertainty about the future in the writers room too, I'm not hoIding my breath for them. I think that after SDCC we'II know something more, even if not every idea the writers say there makes it to the show, at Ieast we'II have us something to taIk about; in particular, I hope we'II know for sure if there is a time jump for the premiere.

    I think one of the main reasons for the forum being generally quiet is the lack of material for discussion. There was no cliffhanger and there seems to be less and less to expect. The only "big/meduim steps" the writers could make appear to be unlikely. They say they won't have a Lenny baby, moving the characters to other houses/apartments seems unlikely, they say they like Raj being the single guy, and I think many of us are skeptical about the odds for a significant change in Penny's career.

    I can hear you. I just don't understand why the writers can't or don't want to come up with new, everyday and funny stories. This wasn't hard for them in the first seasons either. Whether one or more seasons are brought into the world for our entertainment doesn't change the character traits of the figures so far. And now insisting on continuity and building some logical endings to old stories does not make the past any more credible.

    Oh, just no shipping war! I was, as usual (lol), just curious and when I saw that date of the last entry, it seemed strange to me. But I'm sure you're right about your explanation. The active participation in the forum has generally decreased.

    Yes! And guess what! I found another Lenfriend over the weekend at a birthday party.

    There are not so much consequential things to do with Shamy either.

    Last time somebody asked the same question, IIRC, it didn't end well, with post edited and ship-wars, LOL! Anyway, since you asked, also last season hiatus was pretty quiet, so this "situation" is no surprise to me. In particular, the Shamy thread hasn't been very crowded all season long, considering its standards (the S. 10 Shamy thread had 443 pages, while the S. 11 Shamy thread has 175 pages) and many of the members that regularly wrote in the forum during S. 11 and I have contact with are either busy in RL or disinterested in the forum at this point. I hope we'll be more active, both speaking about Shamy and about the show in general (we do have opinions about the show in general, who know?) when the season starts...

    The past five seasons have been well exhausting LOL. But Lets hope regardless if S12 or S13 is the last season. They deliver something at least memorable. Hopefully with Shamy being married now. They might start distributing story and screen time more evenly. I Think with Leonard and Penny. Focus on their careers be good. Penny pursuing PR work. Who knows if they pick up Leonards novel plot line. Prob do the Shamy project. Who knows though. Lenny road trip. Have them on the couch more. Kissing more etc. All good. Just keep portraying them as a happy married couple like they did last season. But with just a bit more meat than bone in plots.

    Yes, it is indeed; honestIy, I don't think Mooves wouId have said what he said if he hadn't had at Ieast preliminary talks with the actors and they hadn't shown an "interest" for the renewaI, but many things can go wrong in negotiations, or some in the cast can change their mind, so we have just to wait for more updated news when the season starts

    Leonard and Penny are getting ready for the twins. Leonard doesn't allow the ducks and Canadian geese in the pond! A little overprotective!!

    I miss the table flipping tbh 😄 I agree the distinct lack of discussion re s12. Prob down to a lack of matarial. And the fact the current season finalie. Was pretty seemless. No Cliffhanger etc. Unlike with the LP wedding. Shamys went off without a hitch ahem. So nothing really to disect. It well be interesting what if any direction they take the show in. Well they be bold and start shaking things up? I certantly hope so. Show needs a bit of a shake I think. Needs revigorating. Some new ideas. As for renewals all depends on a various of factors. The Studio, network, and actors. At Upfronts studio seem keen. Ratings did well this season. till bringing in a ton of revenue. That court case intervention might contribute too. Obviousley if the show is still profitable for the studio. And Actors are all on board for a 13th season. I can see it happening. And it well prob be final season.

    To me is seems like the biggest question is, will things start going in a new and unexpected direction? What will they do to promote the season opener? I don't think there is an obvious path forward at this point. Who if anyone will be a guest in the opener?

    Or she doesn’t want the paparazzi so she won’t show them decorating her farm. It almost has to be at one of their places if “all” the animals really are involved.

    Wow, I'm on pins and needles wonder if a shamy episode will win. Spoiler alert, they were all shamy episodes. There was no speculation there, it was pre-determined. We all know that the winning episode will be 11/24.

    Yes, that was almost two months ago. Maybe the wedding planning is already finished or in its final stages.

    I really don’t think the cast will change their minds bc In a recent interview with Jim Parsons he stated this “I will tell you that, for whatever reason, they’ve all been enjoyable seasons, but as far as camaraderie goes, the frivolity on the set, just the jovial atmosphere, has never been at a more pitched degree than it is this season. Now, I don’t know if that’s because everyone is like, “I think the end is near,” or just because it’s uncertain now, where we’ve gone through so many seasons and been lucky enough to know for certain what was going on.” And “ I think it’s related to some sort of appreciation of each other, that like family, we were able just to take it for granted, because we knew we were going to be here next week. And now the weeks might be getting shorter. You just don’t know. So, because of that, I could see it making things go further. It’s really hard to say. And there are so many people making their own decisions involved.” The cast of tbbt is sure lucky to have 12 seasons as a family but what they don’t realize is that it is really up to them https://www.google.com/amp/s/parade.com/638211/paulettecohn/jim-parsons-shares-his-thoughts-on-whether-the-big-bang-theory-is-coming-to-its-end/amp/

    You need to hold up the sarcasm sign when you write these things 😉 I made a note of that before. It will take the next two or three presidents to repair the damage he did and that's only if they completely reverse his foreign policy.

    I said it’s not about the feels. But this feels like watching something come crashing down in slow motion. The US President is demonstrating that he can’t be trusted to maintain agreements. How can anyone trust any agreement involving the US president going forward? What’s an American promise worth now? Talk about not thinking ahead. I hope it is all show - but isn’t the quote something like; when someone shows you who they are, believe them. I dont want to be even more alarmist - but hey. Look. (Geo-politically I mean. Everyone I know is lovely)

    You all do realize that Bill is much more wealthy than any of the actors. While they get just under a million an episode, and have 1-2% of the back end, Bill (as co-creator) would have (based on normal splits) of about 25-30% of the back end. Which means he has currently gotten between 300-400 million from it. Not to mention the pay he got for the first six years as showrunner (with chuck) and all the writing credits.

    Oh my lord, even Fox (not) News, also known as Trump TV, calls Trump a dictator 🤣 (she says it at ~0:20) Sometimes, people can't help but have the truth slip out 😂

    Knowing the shamy love within the writers room, I trust that they will not disappoint us in that regard. Maybe I'm just being pessimistic. I feel I should expect the worst an then be pleasantly surprised if I am proven wrong! 😧
