Hit American sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory' has been renewed for three more seasons, bringing it through the 2016-2017 TV season.

CBS has given a vote of confidence to Emmy-winning comedy 'The Big Bang Theory' starring Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, reported Ace Showbiz.

"Comedy is a big part of our schedule, and 'The Big Bang Theory' is the biggest comedy force on television," says Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment, when announcing the multi-year broadcast renewal.

"This multi-year deal further strengthens our network's position for future seasons and marks another chapter in the great partnership CBS enjoys with Warner Bros. Television for delivering audiences the best in comedy. We're proud to work with and showcase the incredible talents of Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and this amazing cast every week."

This is the second time the sitcom has earned a massive three-season renewal. The studio is expected to renew deals with Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco, who reportedly are seeking hefty salary increases.

Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are said looking for increases too and will negotiate together, while Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch have inked new deals with WBTV.
