The laughs will have to wait because “The Big Bang Theory” won’t be airing any new episodes over the next few weeks.

The CBS comedy returns with Season 12, episode 11, titled “The Paintball Scattering,” on Jan. 3, and when it does come back, it’ll feature a lot of jealous characters.

“Penny [Kaley Cuoco] and Leonard [Johnny Galecki] organize a paintball game that results in mayhem when Sheldon [Jim Parsons] is jealous of Amy [Mayim Bialik],” the synopsis shares. “Also, Koothrappali [Kunal Nayyar] catches Anu [Rati Gupta] with her ex-boyfriend, and Stuart [Kevin Sussman] doesn’t want to move in with Denise [Lauren Lapkus].”

While fans will have to wait a few weeks until this new “The Big Bang Theory” episode airs, they’ll still be able to see reruns of the sitcom. Tonight, CBS is airing a rebroadcast of an earlier Season 12 episode of “The Big Bang Theory,” titled “The Procreation Calculation.” It’ll air during the show’s usual 8 p.m. EST time slot.
