CBS has just finalized a deal, renewing The Big Bang Theory for three more season. The Big Bang Theory has literally exploded since its second season, becoming one of the top comedies on television. Here is the press release from CBS:

CBS Entertainment and Warner Bros.

Television. The agreement renews THE BIG BANG THEORY for an additional three years, extending it through the 2013-2014 season.

“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.”
