The Big Bang Theory: Season 9


The Big Bang Theory is a comedy TV series which is currently aired on the CBS channel in the US. Two young physicists, Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter, along with their friends, are in the middle of the story. The title of the show is based on a widely accepted theory of the Universe’s formation, according to which the so-called Big Bang initiated everything we deal with, by expanding hot and dense matter from a single point to the current size. The matter has been continuously expanding ever since having created the familiar Universe.

The show premiered on the TV screens on September 24, 2007. In spring 2014, creators have announced that 3 more seasons are to follow, which was the fans’ biggest joy at the time. So, apart from the season 9, the viewers will also see season 10. The new episodes will be out in 2015.


The filming takes place under the supervision of the Warner Bros. Television company. Chuck Lorre (Mom, Two and a Half Men) и Bill Prady are credited as the show's creators.

The pilot episode was released back in 2006. Although it wasn't aired, it had a great reception, which gave creators the right to continue the project.

As the authorship rights weren't acquired by the Belarus-based TV people properly, the show was considered a plagiarism. The whole deal wasn't brought to court, however, and the production was stopped after making of 4 episodes.

The main characters were named Leonard and Sheldon to commemorate a great actor and producer Sheldon Leonard who is responsible for making dozens of well-known films and TV projects.
