The tenth season of “The Big Bang Theory” is yet to premiere. But fans are already speculating that the end of the show is coming soon. Will the series really be axed after the next installment? Will season 10 really be the show’s last?
CBS has yet to make an announcement regarding the show’s possible cancellation. Actor Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj, is uncertain of the future. “To be completely honest…I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Nayyar told BBC. “Next season, as it stands on our contract, could be the last season.”
However, the actor did assure fans that he “would love to do the show as long as you guys would have us on the air.” If the series does get cancelled, some fans think a movie can be made instead. According to ComicBook, Nayyar also weighed in on this fan suggestion.
“Unless the movie was a two-and-a-half-hour sitcom version of ‘The Big Bang Theory‘, I don’t think we could ever actually do a movie,” he said. “It’s a very difficult format to do for a movie because…we shoot in front of a live audience, a live studio audience, with four cameras.” However, he thinks they could “do it on stage.”
Meanwhile, the rest of Raj’s gang might soon be joined by a character from one of their favorite comic books. Jesse Eisenberg, who played Lex Luthor in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn Justice,” has expressed interest in joining the series as a guest star next season.
“I have told Kunal I want to be on ‘The Big Bang Theory,'” Eisenberg was quoted saying. “But my one stipulation, [and] I’ve told [show runner] Mr. Chuck Lorre this, is that I play Kunal’s biological brother and no questions are asked.”
“The Big Bang Theory” Season 10 is set to return to CBS on October 27.
