Things are changing fast for "The Big Bang Theory" nerds, as the death of Wolowitz's mother and Leonard and Penny's impending nuptials added more depth to the story. With the ratings remaining strong for the CBS comedy, it seems that there is a possibility for the show to go past its tenth season.

As Inquisitr noted, CBS renewed the series last year for three more seasons (8-10) and CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler noted on how the show has become important for the network. She said, "Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and The Big Bang Theory is the biggest comedy force on television. This multi-year deal further strengthens our network's position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. We're proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week."

The show is on hiatus until next month, (CBS is said to clear the way for the upcoming NCAA Tournament) and a two-week break before episode 19 is set to air on April 2. There are only six episodes left until the end of the season, as noted by Christian Today. However, before the season wraps up, "Victorious" star Matt Bennett is set to drop by, claiming to be Wolowitz's half-brother, Josh.

In an interview with Larry King via Comic Book, TBBT cast member Johnny Galecki remarked on the show's success, saying, "We were reflecting a world that was happening out there. When I grew up scientists were anti-social people who worked in basements and wore coats and worked with bunson burners, and now they're in our technology every day, and our technology has almost become fashion accessories. They're the rock stars of the world. They're molding our culture. And I think that society knows that. Culture knows that and are aware of that. And we just wanted to reflect what those guys were like behind the technology."

When asked about the possibility of the show extending to more than its confirmed 10 season-run, Galecki remained positive, telling King, "99 percent of the time I feel like I'll do this as long as they'll have me, absolutely. As long as the audience will have us, I should say."

Would you want the gang of nerds extending their stay on television for more than the ten seasons, or do you think it's time to move on from the Big Bang and let CBS come up with yet another sitcom to fill the Thursday night comedy slot?
