The Big Bang Theory is one of the most popular televisions show currently and seeing the kind of viewership it enjoys, CBS has decided to go ahead and have the tenth season of The Big Bang Theory. The series is currently in Season 9 and the whole team is very excited about the fact that there is another season to look forward to.
CBS hasn’t said anything about Season 10 of The Big Bang Theory being the season finale and Steven Molaro, the showrunner has confirmed that as long as the writers have a story to share they will keep making the show.
In spite of the kind of popularity that the show enjoys, Mayim Bialik who plays the role of Amy on the show feels that the primary cast of The Big Bang Theory is overpaid. According to Mayim Bialik it is not just the actors from the show who have are being overpaid, but all actors in the industry. While Bialik said this, she was quick to inform the fans that she wasn’t paid as much money as people imagine her to make.
Reports suggest that CBS pays the primary cast of The Big Bang Theory approximately $30 million per year and then there are other deals and endorsement and different other projects that they have in hand.
Bialik reportedly said that the main reason for the high salaries is not because of the popularity of the show. The actors have been paid at a similar scale since the first year of the show. She added that CBS has an extraordinary group of writers who need to get the complete credit for the quality of the show.
The Big Bang Theory is on a hiatus for a few weeks and the next episode is going to premiere on 30th March. There are talks that hint at Penny (Kaley Cuoco) getting a job change in the upcoming episode.
Ever since Penny came into the series, her role has been pretty static. She had to abandon her dream of becoming an actor and get a job at a pharmaceutical company as a sales rep. However, this wasn’t something that fans had imagined her doing.
Steven Molaro spoke to Entertainment Weekly and said that while Penny might be doing very well in her new job, she isn’t happy with it since it is not something that she loves to do. The viewers have already expressed a lot of discontent at the fact that Penny was made to give up her dreams and it is time that the writers redress the issue.
Those thinking of Penny heading back to the world of movies is going to be disappointed though. While Penny will be getting a new career, she isn’t going to try and become an actress anymore.
She has realized that it is not a viable career option. She is a grown up now and with Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Howard (Simon Helberg) having a baby, she wants to make her financial position secure for the future.
The Big Bang Theory Season 9 saw Meemaw. She was one of the many family members who have been introduced into the series. There are chances that Penny might get to meet her mother in the series. However, before she does that she will be meeting Leonard’s (Johnny Galecki) father.
