According to the NY Daily News, THE BIG BANG THEORY's co-creator, Chuck Lorre told The Hollywood Reporter at Tuesday's Television Critics Association's summer press tour that the long-running comedy will most likely sign off the airwaves following Season 12.

One could easily presume that would be the end of the series, but I'm just amazed we're here," shared Lorre.Ranked as one of television's most-watched comedies among the adults 18-49 demographic, the series was recently renewed for an 11th and 12th season, 48 additional episodes in all. This Fall, CBS will debut a 'Big Bang' spin-off series titled YOUNG SHELDON, which will explore the childhood of beloved nerd Sheldon. Jim Parsons will narrate the series.

Enter beautiful, street-smart neighbor Penny, who aims to teach them a thing or two about life. Despite their on-again, off-again relationship in the past, Leonard and Penny have finally gotten married. Even Sheldon has found a female companion, entering into a "relationship agreement" with neurobiologist Amy Farrah Fowler, and they recently took their relationship to the next level. In their free time, Leonard and Sheldon enjoy fantasy role-playing games with their ever-expanding universe of friends, including fellow scientists Koothrappali, Wolowitz and Wolowitz's adorable microbiologist wife, Bernadette, who is now expecting their first child.
