  1. To prevent confusion, mphs95 started this thread. I've combined the four different threads into this one. The system puts the earliest timed post first. Vonmar was the first to post, hence why her post is now first in this thread. From Variety ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Spinoff About Young Sheldon Eyed at CBS, Warner Bros. TV Warner Bros. TV and CBS are in the early stages of developing a spinoff of “The Big Bang Theory” that would revolve around the Sheldon Cooper character as a youth. The project is nearing a script deal, sources tell Variety. Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon on the flagship series, is attached to executive produce the spinoff along with Chuck Lorre and “Big Bang” showrunner Steve Molaro. “Big Bang” co-creator/exec producer Bill Prady is likely to be on board as an exec producer as well. Molaro will write the script focusing on Sheldon, the idiosyncratic and neurotic genius, as a youth growing up in Texas. The character’s colorful family and formative years in the Lone Star state have often been referenced on “Big Bang Theory.” Laurie Metcalf earned an Emmy nomination this year for her recurring guest star role as Sheldon’s mother, Mary Cooper. CBS and Warner Bros. TV declined to comment. Molaro will write the script focusing on Sheldon, the idiosyncratic and neurotic genius, as a youth growing up in Texas.

CBS and Warner Bros. TV declined to comment. “Big Bang Theory” is television’s top comedy, a major feat for a show in its 10th season. Warner Bros. and CBS are expected to begin discussions soon about a renewal deal that is anticipated to take the show through another two or three seasons. A prequel spinoff would give CBS a shot at extending the valuable “Big Bang” franchise. Renewing “Big Bang” is an expensive investment, as the core cast members — Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco — currently make $1 million per episode for their 24-episode seasons. A new series would come with a lower cost structure but capitalize on the built-in “Big Bang” fan base. Sources caution, though, that the follow-up series is still in very early development, just at the script stage.

  3. I think 12x23 will leave us hanging, but.... I think we are going to get a time jump in 12x24 where this will all will be resolved.

  6. From TV Insider Will There Be a 'Big Bang Theory' Spinoff? Chuck Lorre on the Show's Ending, Penny's Intelligence & More Creator/executive producer Chuck Lorre, executive producer Steve Holland, other producers, writers, directors and the cast of The Big Bang Theory are tasked with bringing the beloved series to a conclusion after a 12-year run. Whether the gang scatters over the country to take new jobs or if they all end up sitting around Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny’s (Kaley Cuoco) apartment eating Chinese food yet is unknown, but we’re going to miss ‘em a great deal. TV Insider recently visited the set to talk to speak to Lorre and Holland about the show’s upcoming finale, who we might be seeing again before TBBT concludes, what the turning point was in Sheldon (Jim Parsons) coming out of his shell, and a lot more. Read on to get their insights! <full article in the link>

    [Spoilers] Shamy: Season 12

    From TV Line TV's Best First Kisses: Friends, Buffy, Gilmore Girls, Outlander, Alias, Castle, Arrow, All My Children and More The Big Bang Theory‘s Sheldon and Amy Yes, Amy had drunkenly kissed Sheldon back in Season 4. But the couple’s first real kiss came aboard a train to Wine Country in Season 7. Even better, it was Sheldon who initiated it — and he liked it! It came as a total shock to Sheldon, Amy and the studio audience.

  11. They could have just posed together for fun after taking their individual photos.
  12. I wonder what is going on? Are they doing a flashback to picture day in high school or taking pretend yearbook photos? I wounder how this will somehow be part of tomorrows taping?

    Season 12 Chit Chat Thread

    My mistake, I wasn't addressing the "legend" comment. I was addressing this comment... He has and he was.

    Season 12 Chit Chat Thread

    Ummm you need to check his credits and awards. He's already broken the mold.
  15. I agree, we can't have that pesky Leonard just letting himself into 4B any time he feels like it. So rude, using his emergency key and then sleeping on Sheldon and Amy's couch.
  16. One journalist, among the many that visited Stage 25 during the TCA Set Visit Day described the plot of what they had seen. Normally that is not done and on some of the other set visits they made that day they were instructed to not reveal any spoilers. Most just posted pictures of the keepsakes they received or the food that they ate. One guy, whose perception was that Amy was "manipulating" Sheldon does not make for me a taping report. So I will withhold judgement until I get more detail from other sources.

    Chuck Lorre

    How is this sexist? Do only women get acne? How is this hate speech? If Sarah can say that she believes that "God wanted Trump to be president" can't Chuck say that He didn't? P.S Chuck has been doing this for years on Vanity Cards for his shows. He even published a book of the cards.
