Warner Bros. Discovery has announced that a new Big Bang Theory spinoff series is in the works for its new Max service.
While it looks as though Young Sheldon may be coming to an end with season 7, Warner Bros. Discovery isn’t ready to get out of the Big Bang business quite yet. During an event on Wednesday announcing the rebranding of HBO Max to simply Max, Warner Bros. Discovery shared it is in development with Chuck Lorre Productions on a new spinoff.
All details about the series are currently being kept secret other than it will be set in the same universe. It’s not even clear yet if it will be another prequel or a potential sequel to the original series, which ran for 12 seasons.
A sequel seems somewhat likely as it would allow for the actors to make guest appearances as their schedules allowed. Currently, Mayim Bialik (Amy) and Malissa Rauch (Bernadette) are the busiest with their own sitcoms.
The Big Bang Theory debuted in 2007 and was the number one comedy in the world when it concluded its successful 12-season run in 2019 as the longest-running multi-camera series in television history, with 279 episodes. The series won 10 Emmy Awards and received 55 Emmy nominations. Additionally, The Big Bang Theory won a Critics Choice TV Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and The Humanitas Prize.
Max is set to debut on May 23, 2023, but no indication has been given as of yet as to when more details will be shared on this new project.
