CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler, recently spoke to E! Online about the future of both shows:

"We have that question every year.and that's what happens when you have long-term success…We have a great relationship with Warner Brothers and having four Chuck Lorre shows on the air, is great…So far all of them have worked out. So that's a good indication of where that's heading…It will be decided in May."

Meanwhile, classic Star Wars cast members Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones will be making a special guest appearance on an upcoming episode of the show. TVLine’s Ask Ausiello column has the scoop on just what brings the two legends to the small screen:

“A Comic-Con crisis sets the stage for the epic run-in. 'The guys for the first time get locked out of getting Comic-Con tickets and they're not going to be able to go,' explains exec producer Steve Molaro. 'So Sheldon sets out to start his own new comic book convention and is hell-bent on getting an A-list panelist. If he gets one, it will be a real convention, and he sets his sights on the voice of Darth Vader.' (And where Vader goes, Leia follows.)"
Of course Sheldon would start his own comic convention. How he lands James Earl Jones is beyond me, but we'll find out soon enough.”
