Details on his character and storyline are being kept under wraps, but the “Back to the Future” vet’s episode will air on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 8 p.m on CBS.
“We’re so excited to be working with Christopher Lloyd, and think we’ve created a fun part that fans will really enjoy,” said “The Big Bang Theory’s” executive producers in a statement.
In other “Big Bang Theory” news, earlier this week Variety reported that a spinoff series is in the works. The potential show, which is currently in early development, would focus on a young Sheldon Cooper, the character played by Jim Parsons on the flagship show. None of the current “Big Bang” cast members are expected to have on-camera roles in the spinoff, but Parsons is attached as an executive producer.
“The Big Bang Theory” is TV’s top comedy — a huge feat for a show in its 10th season. While the sitcom has yet to be renewed for another season, it’s expected that a pickup will come, as new deals for the high-paid actors are looming.
