The Big Bang Theory stars Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik set to reunite for new Fox comedy series Carla

Though The Big Bang Theory has ended, two of its stars, Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik, are teaming up once again.

Deadline reports that Parsons, 46, and Bialik, 43, are reuniting to star in the new Fox comedy series Carla, based on the BBC series Miranda by Miranda Hart.

The series was in a competitive bidding situation with several networks, but Fox finally landed the project, giving it a series order to premiere in the fall 2020 season.

Carla is created by Darlene Hunt (The Big C), and will follow Bialik as the title character, a woman who tries to prove to her mother and the rest of society that you can still be happy without having everything you want.

Carla shakes things up by spending all of the money her parents set aside for her wedding, to open a Cat Cafe in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Bialik will star in Carla and also serve as executive producer, while Parsons will not have a role in front of the camera, solely serving as executive producer.

'Well, friends. Here's what I've been doing and brewing...my friend and co-star, @therealjimparsons, and I are working together again!!!,' Bialik began.

'He and I are joining to executive produce a show for me to star in based on the BBC show "Miranda." It's called "Carla" and it's been an incredibly windy road to get here. SO worth it,' she added.

'We could not be more excited to work together and bring you this show which features SO MANY CATS!!!!'

She added that the photo she shared of Parsons and Bialik was from, 'one of our pitches, uncannily and totally coincidentally dressed like salt and pepper shakers.' 

Miranda Hart, who created and starred in the original series Miranda that Carla is based on, will also serve as an executive producer.

Miranda was one of the UK's top-rated comedies in the past 10 years, running from 2009 to 2013. 

The project also falls under Bialik's two-year pod deal at Warner Bros. Television that she recently signed through her newly-formed company Sad Clown Productions.
