"It doesn't take a theoretical physicist to see why this show is a BIG part of our comedy future," said Nina Tassler. "From ratings to critical acclaim to pop culture buzz, it's struck a chord on all levels. The creative genius of Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady and the on-camera talents of an amazing young ensemble have created a comedy that will entertain viewers for a long time. We're proud to partner with Warner Bros. on another highly successful, long-running comedy."

"We are delighted and grateful that CBS has once again rewarded THE BIG BANG THEORY with a multiyear renewal," said Peter Roth. "This is a testament to the inspired and brilliant work of the show's entire creative team, and we look forward to continuing this highly successful partnership."

THE BIG BANG THEORY, which premiered in September 2007, had been part of CBS's top-rated Monday comedy block for the past three seasons. It finished 2009-2010 as primetime's #1 scripted series in adults 18-49 and the #2 comedy among viewers.

It won an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series" for star Jim Parsons (2010), a People's Choice Award for "Favorite TV Comedy" (2010) and was the recipient of two Television Critics Association Awards in 2009 for "Outstanding Achievement in Comedy" as well as "Individual Achievement in Comedy" for Parsons.

This year, the series is nominated for two Golden Globe Awards, which will be announced on Sunday, for "Best Television Series � Comedy or Musical" and "Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series � Comedy or Musical."
