“Big Bang Theory” star Johnny Galecki recently weighed in on talks of a possible Season 11 renewal.

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the actor confirmed that discussions are still ongoing regarding the fate of the hit CBS sitcom. Galecki admitted that he doesn’t know how much longer he could play the role of Leonard. But the determination and passion of the writers of “Big Bang Theory” are more than enough to get him on board for Season 11 and beyond.

“We’re very much talking about the show’s future right now, and it seems that the writers are very confident and excited that they can write some more after this year, which is an incredible testament to them… If they’re confident that they can do more, then I know that we’re still having a great time with it on stage, so hopefully a bit longer,” he said.

Earlier this year, CBS chief Glenn Geller told Variety that some of the cast members of “Big Bang Theory” are in negotiations to return to Season 11. While at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Geller said that he’s confident they would be able to finalize the deal.

Meanwhile, Parsons and Cuoco have both expressed interest in reprising their roles in “Big Bang Theory” Season 11. While speaking with TV Line, Parsons said that he doesn’t think any of his co-stars would want to exit the franchise anytime soon. “If the opportunity to go past Season 10 came up, I’d be very hard-pressed to tell you who among the cast might say no – if anybody would. I wouldn’t,” he said.

Cuoco added that she also wants to be part of the show for as long as possible. “That’s the overall consensus. It might be sticky road, but if I have anything to do with it, we’d be here for much longer,” she said.

“Big Bang Theory” Season 10 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
