A ‘Big Bang Theory’ reboot was never going to happen, according to CBS host Stephen Colbert.
The Big Boo episode, which is set in 2019, is set 20 years after the events of the first episode and involves the discovery of a new planet called Nibiru.
It was supposed to be the perfect example of a reboot, but instead it’s been called a “reboot for television” by Colbert.
“They don’t know what to do with this show,” Colbert told Entertainment Weekly.
It’s a reboot.
It has to be rebooted.”
Colbert said he was looking for a “more traditional” version of the show to try and find a fresh way to rekindle interest in the franchise.
“This is a reboot for television, so I said, ‘What’s the next show you want to see on the air?’
And they said, we want to be different, and I said that it should be something that is really different,” Colbert said.
“We’re not going to try to do the same thing twice, which means it’s going to be like nothing we’ve ever done before.
I said this in the beginning of the season, and now I’m going to continue to keep saying it.”
The new show was supposed for CBS All Access, but CBS was reportedly reluctant to take the new show seriously.
Colbert believes that if CBS was going to take a chance on a new reboot, they should have the resources to make it work.
“I think the biggest mistake that they made is they thought they could just pick one of the three, which they have three times, which has been the worst mistake of their entire history,” he said.
“That’s a show they should be ashamed of.
And they’re still going to get the blame.
If they were going to have the money to do that, they would have picked one of those three.”CBS has yet to confirm whether the new Big Bang will be a reboot or a prequel.
Colbert said CBS is still “working out the details” on a series premiere date, but said CBS executives would have “a very specific idea” of when it will be.
The new series has been renewed for a second season, which will premiere on July 12.
