21 July 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Big Bang Theory cast opened Comic-Con on Friday morning in Hall H reminiscing about the past decade and addressed the engagement cliffhanger between Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik).

“I went up to get my camera to get this moment. I had to get this photograph on my Polaroid,” Kaley Cuoco said, recalling the day they filmed the pivotal season 10 finale moment. “Everyone and their mother was behind the camera for this one scene. I started crying. We were all crying. It was really cool. So many relationships have transformed and to see that be the pinnacle of the season was so cool.”

During a lighter moment in the panel, executive producer Steve Molaro shared a story of the first Comic-Con panel for The Big Bang Theory, where he unknowingly crashed a fight between Cuoco and then-boyfriend Johnny Galecki, who were secretly dating at the time. Though the exes and co-stars couldn't recall exactly what they »

Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons Says Sheldon Cooper Spinoff Series Will Be “Very Different”

23 January 2017 10:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Big Bang Theory may well become the textbook example of a slow-burner in the modern TV landscape. When Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady’s science-heavy sitcom premiered almost a decade ago, CBS’ newfound drama was hampered by mixed reviews, and it wasn’t until the show’s sophomore run that The Big Bang Theory started to reverse its fortunes.

Following its tenth year on the airwaves, Lorre and Prady’s brainy sitcom remains one of the most successful shows in the medium, and it’s small wonder why Warner Bros. TV and CBS issued the go-ahead for a spinoff series back in November, one designed to focus on the inimitable theoretical physicist known as Sheldon Cooper. Now in active development, it’s understood the planned offshoot will focus on a 12-year-old Sheldon who spends his youth growing up in Galveston, Texas. Jim Parsons may leave some mighty big boots to fill, »
