The Big Bang Theory has been renewed for a third season, with the renewal announced this morning.
It is the third time in the series history for the Big Picture, which first aired in 2009.
The drama, which is set in the year 2100, has been the subject of intense speculation over the years and has always remained a hugely popular series.
The renewal comes on the back of an unprecedented ratings surge, with The Big Bash series averaging around 10 million viewers per episode, more than double the same period last year.
“The Big Picture has been a hit in all its incarnations, but this season it’s the most watched series on Channel 4 and has had a massive impact on our audience,” said Executive Producer and Head of Programming, John Daley.
“We are thrilled that the Big Bang theory has been so well received by audiences, and we’re looking forward to the future.”
The Big Bang has been one of the most popular sitcoms of all time and has been nominated for four Emmys.
“I can’t wait to see how it all plays out next year,” said Big Bang star Jeremy Kyle.
“It’s a brilliant way to end the series, which I think is going to be great.”
The new season of The Big Game will air on BBC One at 9pm on January 21, 2019, and will follow the lives of four characters as they go head-to-head in a contest to win the Bigger Piss Off prize.
