Well, we knew something was going to happen!

And we were hoping Leonard and Penny's on-again off-again love story would go on forever!
The mega-hit sitcom was just renewed for three more season, but showrunner Steve Molaro is already assuming the 10th season will be the series' last — especially given that stars Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, and Johnny Galecki's contracts expire!
"I'm going to move forward along with [co-creator] Chuck [Lorre] that 10 is the end unless we're told otherwise. These are decisions that are so far away I can't really even think about that. I have no choice but to move forward … it's so far away…The mindset is it's going to be the 10 and then we'll see what happens after that."
WHAT??! That's a less than bangin' theory!!!!
Thank goodness we have three seasons to get used to the idea of a world without Sheldon every week!
Then again, considering even the show's reruns outperform other top-rated series, we're betting CBS will do just about ANYTHING to hold on to this HIGHlarious money train as long as they can — and we won't be mad about it! HA!
Fingers crossed Big Bang will see a season 11 and beyond!
