‘The Big Bang Theory’ Director Teases Spinoff Could Be On The Horizon
Speaking to Forbes, the show's director Mark Cendrowski, who also works on Young Sheldon, revealed that he wouldn't rule out a "continuation" of one or two of the characters' story lines "in a couple of years". And we are SCREAMING.
"At the end of The Big Bang Theory's run, once we decided to end the show, Chuck Lorre, the creator, was like, 'Look not everyone's involved in this, it's not a Big Bang episode'," he said.
"That's not to say that there may not be something down the line, but I don't think anyone wanted to jump into the next season and spin someone off immediately. I think the idea of letting things percolate a little, and you don't want to cash in.
"That doesn't mean that won't happen and, in a couple of years, maybe it's a character or a couple of characters that catch up within a couple of years."
He added: "I think with these characters you're going to want to know what happens to them in a few years. If in five years Chuck Lorre decided to bring back some characters and try something again, I would love to be involved.
"It would be just a continuation. There's plenty to explore with their lives and characters moving forward. That said, it would have to its own show with its own reason for being."
The CBS show officially came to a conclusion earlier this year in a two part finale, which (spoiler alert) showed the elevator had *finally* been fixed - oh, and Penny found out she was pregnant.
The action-packed finale also saw Amy and Sheldon win the Nobel Prize, and dedicate their speech entirely to their supportive pals, Leonard, Penny, Howard, Raj and Bernadette.
We can't wait years for another episode! Any chance you could bring 'em back now, Chuck?!
