Big Bang Theory season 13: Will the series ever be rebooted?
The Big Bang Theory may now be over after 279 episodes on CBS but fans are hopeful the popular series could come back at some point in the future. But are there any plans for a reboot on the horizon for the sitcom?
Will Big Bang Theory be rebooted?
Since the announcement that Big Bang Theory was coming to an end on CBS, fans have been vocal about their desire for more of the sitcom.
The show came to an end earlier this year after 12 seasons on the channel with an emotional farewell to Sheldon Cooper (played by Jim Parsons) and the gang.
Among those calling for a reboot was Penny star Kaley Cuoco, who revealed her thoughts at the Golden Globes back in January.
Speaking as the 12th series drew to an end, she told Entertainment tonight: “I don’t wanna leave, I don’t wanna leave.”

She added: “I said it. I don’t wanna leave. Everyone’s doing rebooting.
“We might as well do it in, like, a year. I’m fine with that!”
Now it has been teased this could actually be on the cards according to director Mark Cendrowski.
He told Forbes that although series creator Chuck Lorre decided to end the series, this is not to say it could not return again.
He said: “That’s not to say that there may not be something down the line, but I don’t think anyone wanted to jump into the next season and spin someone off immediately.”
He added: “I think the idea of letting things percolate a little, and you don’t want to cash in.
“That doesn’t mean that won’t happen and, in a couple of years, maybe it’s a character or a couple of characters that catch up within a couple of years. Who knows if it will happen.”
As Cendrowski pointed out, fans are sure to want to see these characters again at some point in the future – and there are plenty of directions they could go in.
He added: “There’s plenty to explore with their lives and characters moving forward.
“That said, it would have to its own show with its own reason for being.”

Whether all of the stars would want to return if the series came back has not yet been revealed.
One star who might not want to make a comeback is Sheldon Cooper star Jim Parsons.
When the series was announced to be ending, he told Entertainment Weekly it felt like the right time to leave.
He said: “It felt like we have been able to do this for so many years now, it doesn’t feel like there is anything left on the table.”

He added: “Not that we couldn’t keep doing it, but it feels like we’ve chewed all the meat off this bone.”
While fans eagerly await news about the future of the show, there is already a spin-off series fans can watch.
Young Sheldon is a prequel show focussing on a young Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) during his upbringing in Texas.
The series is currently airing its third season on CBS for fans to catch-up on.
