'Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar Says Next Season 'Could Be The Last'

'The Big Bang Theory' star Kunal Nayyar is preparing fans that the hit comedy may soon be coming to an end.

The 35-year-old, who plays Raj Koothrappali, admitted at MCM Comic Con in London that wrapping up the series was a distinct possibility with their contracts ending next season.

"Look, next season, as it stands on our contract, could be the last season of Big Bang Theory," he said.

"To be completely honest, I know people are gonna want to know what happens after season 10. I don't know what's going to happen."

"If it were up to me, personally, I would love to do the show as long as you guys would have us on the air."

'The Big Bang Theory', also starring Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco (photosKaley Cuoco photos) and Simon Helberg, remains the most popular comedy on television. However, even though it's in syndication, the star's rocketing salaries could give CBS pause.

Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco are reportedly earning over $1 million per episode as the core cast with Helberg and Nayyar at $750,000 per episode.

Showrunner Steven Molaro also hinted months ago that were working with the same premise.

"The reality is that maybe season 10 is the ending point," he said. "The real answer is, I don't know, and all I can do right now is go episode to episode and try to make each one the best that we can."
